My daughter and I were not having a good time in Paris, until we explored this area. Our visit was in early June this year. Terrific place to walk around as there are lots of interesting shops and food places. From American Apparel to a quirky little bookstore/art gallery, it's a fun place to wander around (without the imposing, dark-suited... More

we have been to Paris several times and this was our first to stay in the Marais. LOVED it! Very fun, vibrant neighborhood. Good base for things to do. We enjoyed just walking around, there are great falafel, crepe and clothing shops. Try Rentavilla for a nice place

Such a beautiful part of the city that is full of life. Everything you could imagine. Lovely cafe's, cute bakeries, fabulous vintage shops, tight streets with asian cuisine...what is there not to love!

One of my absolute favourite place in Paris. Cozy and modern, no matter how old you are, you always fit in. Lots of kind of restaurants, shops and beautiful environment.

We joined a walking tour of Le Marais, and decided to explore the place at another time. This place is probably one of the hippest place in Paris. And if you're a foodie, would appreciate the assortment of dessert places and food spots around the place. One of the places we stumbled upon was L'eclair de Genie on Rue Pavee.... More

We stayed in an apartment in Le Maris and we loved the area, the bars and restaurants are very chic and not like the tourist traps. Also has lovely patisseries and little boutique shops. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Paris!

Visit the Place des Vosges - buy some bread, cheese and fruit and have a picnic. Walk through the streets and explore without a map. It is fun to get lost. You never know what you will find.

Not sure why the Marais is so popular, since it is dirty, there aren't any attractions apart from the Pompidou, and the gypsies hang out in the nooks and crannies surrounding it. Head straight across the river to the Left Bank!

We stayed in a lovely quiet apartment on a local side street; very central yet allowed us to avoid the madness of Notre Dame, etc. We could walk to all the well known sites or take the metro or even buses easily. We chose to walk and felt more part of the local community finding good restaurants and quirky sites... More

it s a really nice area, i suggest visiting musee beaubourg, personally my world favourite, and all the nearest street;it s plenty of galleryes and nice shops and bars, very good to hang out with friends or girl and discovering interesting new things before entering, pay attention to the prices of restaurants, to avoid surprises !
