This hidden hideaway was a lovely discovery. Take in the sights. Watch the school children play in the courtyard. And be sure to check out the Christian Louis perfume shop where the store clerk will select the perfect scent for you.

Bring a baguette and some cheese and sit under the trees in this gorgeous corner of Paris. The fountain will calm you, the children playing will amuse you and the shopping in the Marais will empty your pockets, but every time we go to Paris, the Place des Vosges is on our MUST do list.

We expected something with more floral content and impact. This is a nice space surrounded at a distance by pleasant looking houses

After walking around the Marais, a nice place for a rest is the Place des Vosges, the oldest park in Paris. In one of the buildings surrounding the square is the apartment where, for sixteen years, lived Victor Hugo, author of Notre Dame de Paris with its famous Hunchback character Quasimodo.

One of my favourite places in Paris , a beautiful square with a peaceful park , ideal for a picnic away from the city noise, really interesting history and architecture, can be a little tricky to find but worth the trip on a sunny day.

We wanted to see where the Bastille stood and what is there now. Then we wandered looking for a restaurant. That is when and how we discovered the Place des Vosges. It is a square garden surrounded by buildings featuring vaulted arcades on the inner side. The King's house is on the North and the Queen's on the South. The... More

You'll never get there if you spend hours in museums! But if you prefer exploring city by your feet, then you might encounter while wondering through Marais. It's one of my favorite parks surrounded by square building filled with hundreds of arcs. The park isn't big, but it's absolutely beautiful. Spring and Autumn are especially great time, since blossoming or... More

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.
