If you have some knowledge as to how nobility lived and congregated in the days of kings, this place is a magnificent example of communal living. Just imagine yourself living in one of the several apartments facing the square.

It is said that this is one of the most beautiful squares in the world. Set in one of the busiest parts of Paris, here you can experience relative calm in a pretty park surrounded by beautiful buildings.

Wonderful historic garden and cloistered surrounding terraced buildings. Famous tenants, upmarket cafes and discreet Michelin starred restaurants.

Originally laid out as affluent townhouses for friends of the King, now they are characterful homes for a mixture of people, and under the loggia there are shops and restaurants that speak well of everything you might of thought about Paris.

One of my favorite spots in Paris, because of the wonderful 17th century architecture, its proximity to other treasures in the Marais, and Victor Hugo's home and museum, which is the jewel in this crown.It's also just a great place to sit down and have a refreshment under the porticos of the square on a hot day.

This is a green tree lined square surrounded by a road and apartment buildings. Several famous french elite have stayed around here. You can have breakfast or tea in one of teh various cafes that populate the bottoms of the apartments.

You really shouldn't miss a stroll through the arcades at the Place des Vosges. There are some interresting shops and you can visit Victor Hugo's house.

My title above sums it up....we had 3hrs only in Paris on our way home from the south while we waiting to pick up our car from the Auto Train and this is where we headed.

A lovely place to simply admire the surroundings and potter round the exquisite boutiques and galleries surrounding the square. Or simply sit down and take in the atmosphere as people pass buy. Very relaxing and worth a visit.

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.
