This was the old traditional Jewish section of Paris but is now one of the hip sections in terms of shops and restaurants. It is a charming area, there are plenty of distractions, and you can amuse yourself for several days. If you have been hanging around the more monumental or formal areas of Paris, the Marais offers an interesting... More

Lots to see in this quadrant. Love the Place de Vosges and the winding, little streets. Great pastries abound. Great walking and noshing part of town.

So great to be in the Marais ~ love all of Paris but this is a great area & so easy to walk around & get lost in! Have fun! (get the falafel, eat at Breakfast in America on rue mahler, eat gelatto at any of the small shops :)

You'll regret not visiting Marais if you do so. The architecture is like Soho in London, many small designer shops, restaurants, nice people with alternative styles, nice falafel :) etc. Great for a walk on a sunny day, you feel like you are at the coolest area of Paris. Nobody showing off, just smiling faces and happy people.

The real reason to go to the Orangerie is to see the two Monet galleries. Well worth it just for that. There are other works on exhibit in this small gallery, all interesting, but go just for the Monets. There's usually no lineup.

Shops are great with real price bargains in their sales. Restaurants are poor in general, with some notable exceptions... Not the popular ones!

Lively, upcoming (if not there already!) hip hangout in Paris. Great atmosphere, good food and plenty of choices. Get lost in the streets and you'll be surprised at what you can see and do!

packed with people on narrow streets - take one of the free walking tours to get the most of it. Liked narrow cobblestone streets and my son liked the clothing stores. it was a hot day and super crowded so that was not fun

The Place de Voges area is great for any type of dining you would want. Many art galleries and we also found a small laundramat.
