walked on historical traces with a guide. Le Marais is really nice to visit, full of life and for breaks many restaurants, also one of the oldest of Paris, invite the visitor. Lovely Buidlings,restaurants, shops, museum and more

Great just to wander around the little streets, nice shops, people-watch from a street cafe! Next time we're in Paris we'll aim to say around here - feels nice and lived-in.
