Beautiful and clean district, full of shopping malls. The let down was the price, everything was very expensive.

Used Rick Steves walking tour and walked all over Le Marais. Very interesting walk, which we all enjoyed. My daughter enjoyed shopping the boutiques along the way.

We visit Paris every year and we always stay in Le Marais. This is such a central area within walking distance of many attractions including Notre Dame, George Pompidou, the Latin Quarters and many more. There is also the convenience of many metro stations - Saint Paul is on Line 1 as is Hotel de Ville. Chatelet is also in... More

Beautiful, vibrant yet peaceful at night. Lots of Metro stops and the best vegetarian/vegan options in Paris are located in or near Le Marais!

Great section of Paris with nice Cafes , pretty people and small Boutiques with fine Clothing. This and the neighboring section were full of young well dressed Parisiens and had a wonderful youthful energy .

My favourite arrondissement - spend time in Place des Vosges and just sit in the gardens on one of the copies benches and watch the people go by. On Sunday the area's closed to traffic so one can walk down the streets in safety - though it does get rather busy of course as all the Parisians come out too.

We walked the length and breadth of Paris from here. Loved the Medieval streets and edginess of this district. Tons of little tucked away bars and cafes. Very easy walk to several Metro stations, Notre Dame an easy walk. Just down the road from busier dining areas, the new Pompidou Modern Art Centre and the Musee de Picasso. Highly recommended...

Staying in Le Marais

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.
