One of the oldest parts of Paris, and containing the Jewish quarter which is attractive in itself. There are numerous attractions hiding for your discovery in the narrow streets.

What a nice combination...old Stones, fashionable shops, trendy and very mixed population in a very glamorous part of the city. It always has something to offer for all at any time of the day. Come and get yourself lost in these streets and discover the heart of Paris

Although it's become very touristy in the last few years this is till one of my favorite areas in Paris. Great nightlife and good shopping. For restaurants you can't go wrong but I still love La Petite Cour for a romantic dinner.

we rented an apartment on rue de Turenne and love the neighborhood. Close to Place de Vosges, L'As du Falafel, all the fashionable boutiques on Francois Bourgeois, nice pockets of parks, and old medieval buidlings.

shopping was fun but we ended up in a part where it was only for wholesalers...however we liked the shops we did visit. The food was more expensive that other parts of paris.

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
