This is, in my opinion, the most beautiful place in Paris. Sit in the central garden and enjoy the exquisite buildings around.

Beautiful, practical garden spot amidst this tourist area. Kids can run around in the playground and you can read a book or lie on the grass, or both! East to reach by bus 96, 69 or metro (1)

I would recommend this is combined with a walking tour of the broader marais area. Parisians use the square to lie down to the grass, read, meet friends, enjoy the sunshine or stroll. Around the square there are many historical buildings, such as the Victor Hugo house.

An absolute gem in the Middle of The Marias. Tourists and locals all gathered in this beautiful square just to enjoy a day to read get some sun or to chill with friends. Plenty of restaurants and Victor Hugo's mansion all wrapped up in a treed park full of people just enjoying the day. I went to this place everyday... More

The parc is beautiful and the architecture stunning. This area is a short walk from Les Halles and the shopping area of Rue de Rivoli. There are lovely cafes in which to soak up the atmosphere. You can browse the art shops or eat in the cafes and restaurants.

Staying in Le Marais

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.
