I highly recommend you visit this lovely square in Paris. Walk all around the outside under the arches and enjoy the cafes and art. Then a stroll through the center. On a sunny day - simply sublime.

I love this little square in the heart of the city, surrounded by the hostorical buildings and the cafes. It is always great to visit in the noon or afternoon when the Parisians are taking their coffee/lunch or sunbathing.

A beautiful green square, surrounded by history and great shops and places to eat- located in Le Marais area. We first were introduced to the area by a tour guide from a full day tour but we made it a point to head back and enjoy this park and the surrounding area at a more leisurely pace. . . My... More

Located near Le Marais - tucked away in the area of cafes and shops etc. A great park with stunning buildings all around. A great example of life in the "good old days of Paris". Easy to link with an afternoon in Le Marais/Pompidou Centre areas.

On a cold, wet Paris afternoon I explored the Marais and the Place des Vosges. It was fun window shopping for art and buying some tea. I especially enjoyed listening to the young violinists playing a dual violin concerto near one of the cafes, for euros. I heard the music wafting magically around the place as I walked. If you...

This gorgeously manicured "square" park bordered by a brick arcade that includes Victor Hugo's home, art galleries and numerous restaurants. This is the oldest planned square in Paris. Just sitting on a park bench and watching people stroll through the pebbled walkways or children dash around on scooters, is a wonderful way to relax and take in one of the... More

A must-do part of this glorious city, galleries to browse, and a pretty square to sit in. Visit the Galerie Ariel Sibony for some of the wittiest works.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
