I stayed in an apartment in le marais for my vacation and it was perfect! Le marais has so much to offer, it's right in the middle of Paris and easy walking distance to not only landmarks but also many easily accessible metro stations. Great shopping! Many high end shops (Chanel, Repetto, etc.) as well as lesser known shops (1951,... More

On great transport by metro, the most efficient public transport in the world I think. Lots of little streets to get lost in and discover lovely spots accidentally,

Paris was frankly underwhelming for a few days. And then we went to La Marais and found the charming, busy, interesting city we had been looking for. It's picturesque almost to a fault. Its nooks and crannies never failed to delight us. I hate clothes shopping, but even I was engaged and happy to shop at Alice a Paris. (Sadly,... More

Ended up visiting on a Sunday with the understanding that it includes Paris' Quartier Juif. It was a great choice. The area was open and welcoming. Chose to try L'As de Fallafel (23 Rue de Rosiers) for a very good schwarma sandwich to go--the line to be seated was over 30-minutes long. Note: Marais is in both the 3e and... More

Home to "the best croissant in Paris" among other delicacies. Plenty of see and be seen bars. Great boutique shopping and possibly the only shopping available on Sunday's. Protip- go in January for all the "soldes"

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.
