Vibrant area to walk around on Sunday when much of Paris is closed. Lots of option for coffee / lunch / snacks. Try somewhere off the main tourist routes to avoid queues.

Close to subways, great places to eat and shop and a wee bit off the beaten track. I'd stay here again in a second.

This is the neighborhood that is open for business on Sunday, when much of the rest of Paris is closed. Place des Vosges is a must-see any day of the week. We had an excellent walking tour by Discover Walks.

A must see part of Paris. Lovely little cobblestone streets, gorgeous shops and fabulous places to eat. Catch the metro and get off the main road to really enjoy the experience

Walking this neighborhood, filled with shops and cafes is a great way to stroll around and enjoy an afternoon. Some areas are quite crowded but you can walk some side streets and become isolated from everything else. Many local shops will be closed on the Jewish Sabath (Saturday) so shopping for truly local merchandise will be a challenge on a... More

I guess change is inevitable, but if you've been a soulmate to one of the greatest neighborhoods on the planet the changes are heartbreaking. yes Place des Vosges is still there, and yes there are still a few great spots but Rue Des Rosiers is now clothes boutiques and trinket shops,,sold out to foreign interests without any regard to its...
