Best time to go to Marais is Sunday afternoon. It is crowded, but a lot of nice food, and trendy shops. There are nice parks for kids too.

I went on a walk to this neighborhood early on August, I loved Place des Vosges, the old buildings and nice shops around. I found some very nice scarves there. .

if you like large avenues etc... do not come here! But if you like history, beautifull houses, squares, ancient buildings, ancient books, musea.... and shopping...this is definitively the place to walk, to be, to enjoy!

We loved walking through the area. it had such a great vibe to it. Shops, cafes, stores of all kinds. With the Jewish Quarter nearby providing a wonderful atmosphere as well, the Le Marais as a lot to offer.
