Once you have done all the must sees, Eiffel tower etc. This is a cool neighborhood particularly for vintage shops, which had awesome fur coats.

this is the best place in Paris to visit. Loads of great cafes and bars, an interesting and amazingly vibrant Jewish quatrer, but don't visit that on the Sabbath (from Friday night to Saturday night) lots of small interesting clothing (and other)shops. Some of the Jewish cafes and takeaways are unbelievably popular with lengthy queues, so get there ahead of... More

It is a mix and match area, has all kind of nice shops and restaurants. But, also have small museums for visit. People are very nice in the area, and food are delicious.

This area, the 3rd and the 4th, is a maze of museums, cafes, shops, shops and more shops. You can go in any direction and be sure you'll get lost but eventually find your way to where you're going. Each time you'll see something new in this old historic neighborhood and it's a definitely must-see.

Lovely to wander around all the little streets, great Jewish bakeries and cake shops, plenty of traditional Parisian cafés, lots of individual boutiques as well as some of the bigger name places. Peaceful neighbourhood with a lively friendly atmosphere.

We have been to Paris 4 times and always stayed around Vendome, closest to luxury shopping. Though I appreciate the convenient access to the top designer shops & department stores, my best 'authentic" local Parisien experience was in Marais, an area known as the Jewish Quarters. It's now very trendy, but the shops have very neighborhood-feel. I was able to... More

It seems to be THE place to be but in my opinion it only applies to a certain kind of people. If you are not like this, do not go, nothing really special
