Paris Walking Tour: Discover the Marais District

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Explore Paris' vibrant Marais district during your walking tour. As you walk, your friendly guide will explain the fascinating history of this district, one of the oldest in Paris. The Marais was the site of the first Jewish settlement in Paris and continues to be the hub of the Jewish community today. Pass by the Memorial de la Shoah, an important Jewish site inaugurated in 2005 that stands as a powerful reminder of the Holocaust in France. 

    Continue to the Place des Voges, one of the oldest squares in Paris and a highlight of the Marais. It was once a royal park and is considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in Paris; it was also home to famous French writer Victor Hugo. Next see one of the best examples of Jewish culture in the Marais today – the cobbled Rue des Rosiers, home to Jewish bakeries, bookshops and kosher food outlets. Walk along this vibrant street with your guide, and make note of its popular cafes to come back to during your time in Paris.

    Saw so many interesting things that I would never have found on my own. Comfortable pace and lovely English speaking guide.

    The tour itself was totally worth it. It was our first time to Paris and we found these walks to be educational as well as give us a better understanding of how to get around Paris that we could never figure out on our own....More

    We recently were in Paris and took this tour. The group size was about 20 people. The guide was informative, however, it was difficult to hear what he had to say since he did not use a headphone system.More

    On the walk we took the guide did not use a head set. However it was easy to hear and the guide took time to speak to each person that had a question.
