Go to La Royale for lunch. Great place. Walk around this area and just lose yourself in this area. Find a boulangrie and buy yourself a pastry. Sit on a bench with a cup of hot chocolate if you go in winter and watch the people go by. Ah man what a time! Super!

We stayed in an apartment in the Marais -Rue Charlot- in December, and while it was an authentic French experience, I'd re-think my choice for subsequent visits. The Marais is serviced by about 4 or 5 metro lines. This is great and can get you wherever you want to go. The downside is that the closest is about a 8-10... More

Shops, galleries, restaurants, cafes, bars, falafel shops, trendy boutiques, chocolate – where tourists mingle with locals. We stayed there tice, and probably will again. Metro One stops, including St. Paul. Food shops (yes, even cheese). Walk to Picasso, as well as Bastille for restaurants and its incredible food market.

Okay, let's be honest, having moved to London, I miss Paris terribly. But really, the 3rd has to be my favourite arrondissement. It's a perfect place for a stroll, the shopping is fine and varied, especially on a Sunday when much of Paris is taking the day off. The Rue de Rivoli is fun, but move over to the small... More

We stayed in at the Pavillion de la Reine in the Le Marais area so we had plenty of time to stroll the neighborhood. We came across a ton of boutiques, bars, art galleries, and eateries. We spend most of our time on rue des Francs-Bourgeois, rue des Archives and rue des Rosiers. These streets have a ton of fashionable... More

This neighborhood was recommended by our concierge for shopping on Sunday as most shops in the area are open. We were amazed at the number of shops and masses of people here on Sunday - definitely the day to go. For people watching and shopping opportunities for anyone.

Centre of Jewish Paris, with so many kosher eating places. Mostly falafel and shwarma style, which were packed at Sunday lunchtime. Also where the Picasso Museum is located

Get away from Paris's history for a little bit and blow some of your hard-earned money in its unique boutiques. Avoid the chain stores and explore the lesser-known one-of-a-kind stores. You (and your wife) will enjoy it immensely.
