If you visit Paris but fail to visit Memorial de la Shoah you have missed one of the most important places in the city. We always stay in Le Marais when we visit Paris and love the friendliness and character of the 4th arrondissement. We...More

you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

There are elevators, however, some parts are not accessible. You may want to call ahead, in case there are accessibility features I was not aware of. They speak English.
