The Marais- rue de rosiers has changed a lot. The restaurants are mostly middle eastern food- delicious. The boutiques are younger and hpiper. The place was full on a winter lunchtime. We ate at Karkaz- a dairy restaurant and browsed the shops. It was safe.

The Picasso Museum had been closed for 5 years, but it is now back, totally restored and much, much bigger than before. There are now 4 floors of works of all his trajectory as one of the most inventive and creative artists of the 20th Century. A must see in Paris.

Many great restaurants...... Benedict is my favorite. Many mom and pop shops and lots of food shops. The Shoah, Holocaust Museum is a must. Visit Epicerie Provencale.

Could there be a quainter place than Le Marais in Paris? With its boutiques, its excellent falafel, the superb and moving Jewish museum, and the excitingly louche gay scene, I can safely say that this old man in his twilight years enjoyed his visit enormously.

Bustling with energy and small designer shops. Great area for experiencing the Parisienne cafe society.

One of the best neighborhoods in Paris, good area to be based. Sure it's a good place to live with several bike rental points, restaurants, groceries and stuff. Totally recomended.

A lively district with many restaurants and fashion shops. The key though is to get off the main street (that is rather tourist oriented) and discover the little 'local' restaurants/bars. Found a great little restaurant called 'Le Soleil en Cave' with great food and wine, and very friendly owners (that were thrilled to have a non-local in their establishment!)

While we have always stayed in the 8th, we love just walking Le Marais. The mood of that neighborhood is so warm and welcoming. We also love the diversity of the architecture, and the wealth of cultural attractions, so close at hand. If we were ever to stay elsewhere, than the 8th, Le Marais would be our firsts choice.

I loved this place.. it was my 3rd time in Paris and it surprised me.. Place des Vosges, the streets close to it, restaurants and galleries there are really nice.
