the area is the 3rd er. great location for easy walking to all of the major attractions. several metro stations but you don't really need it. Paris is smaller than we thought. it seems easier to walk around Paris than it does London. lots of Plat de jour bistros for arounf 15e. highly recommend chilling on the lawns of the... More

A lovely area to walk around. Interesting buildings, lovely individual, small shops. Jewish Quarter for good food. Small, quiet, squares to sit and relax. Also in Place des Vosges. Small cafes for coffee.

Went to beautiful Place de Vosges first to the house of Victor Hugo. It was a sunny spring day and everyone relaxed in the parc inside the square.

Having spent 12 days, all over Paris, this was by far my favorite neighborhood. It is full of galleries, markets, cafes, and historic architecture.

On sunday's the Marais is closed to traffic and the shops are all open. The food in the area that you can't go past is the kebabs, but be warned you will have to wait.

Walking around the Marais recaptures that sense of wonder and delight for adults. From the countless cafes and restaurants, where I've had some of the best meals in my life (and at affordable...

Rue Rambuteau is a mostly pedestrian street full of restaurants and interesting local shops, buzzing with life, make sure you walk this as part of your visit to the Marais district, so nice to avoid traffic.
