We spent a couple of hours here walking the streets and popping in to art galleries/shops. The staff were really friendly and helpful - even when they knew we weren't buying anything, but just interested in the artists.

I stayed in the Marais for 7 days and loved every minute of it. My hotel was off the Rue Rivoli near St. Paul's Church and metro stop. Very centrally located in Paris. The neighborhood is young and hip. Plenty of restaurants and shops. It was very easy to get wherever I needed to go either by foot or via... More

Breathtaking, elegant architecture in a beautiful square. Restaurants and Bars all around. The Picasso Museum is in a fine old mansion nearby, beautifully restored; the gallery is extensive over three floors, laid out in periods/styles of his life. Make the effort - it's worth it BUT pre-book or queue for ages!

As a frequent visitor to Paris over the past decades, I rented an apartment in the Marais and felt as if I never had to leave this amazing little quarter of town. The area is alive with cafes, restaurants, bakeries, shops, boutiques, museums, etc... Happy Hour is found on every corner. There are some amazing Jewish bakeries and falafel eateries... More

We've been to Paris many times and have stayed in various areas, but none better than our location on this trip. We stayed just north of the Centre Pompidou on the edge of the Marais. The museums, the restaurants and the shopping in this area are all terrific and the narrow streets give the place a feeling of a more... More

This arrondissement continues to charm us, even with some 'big name' stores in place. Everyone is friendly, and it is quite easy to find delicious food and wine! Felafel is famous in this area... we even had a drink at the same spot twice (great corner, great people watching) and can't remember the name.
