Interesting history in The Marais, especially Victor Hugo's house/museum. Really liked the original letters in the museum to Hugo from friends.

We were exhausted from our day in the other parts of the Marais and didn't do this justice, but got several photos and stopped for a snack. We knew we were missing out on Voltaire's apartment and Mme. de Sevigne, but we just couldn't walk much more! Plus, it was terribly crowded in the afternoon. The park was full! Next... More

This is one of my favourite places in Paris! The architecture and uniformity of the classic buildings which surround the square is superb and the arcades at ground level are full of hotels, shops, galleries and cafes and buzzing with activity. The trees, lawn areas (you can actually sit on these lawns, as many do!) and fountains overlooked by these... More

We passed through this park on Nov. 2 and there were not many people there. It is a pretty park and it's very well kept. We looked for a sidewalk cafe under the covered walk that surrounds the park. The cafe we looked at was not very lively and was too expensive. We walked about a block north of the... More

I have often in this square, and authenticity and is definitely a place that is not so-much in the spotlight of mass tourism. It is still a place for a certain allure, and the shops around are also destined for the class. The square is green, and fun to walk with the children. Also nice to read a book on... More

step back into time as you softly stroll this area taking in all the bistros and galleries. The buildings are historically authentic and worth a visit.

This park area is very popular on most days, more particularly when the weather is mild, but it does not seem to worry the Parisians as they make every minute count when the days are getting shorter.

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.
