This narrow street crosses the Marais and provides rare cross-town traffic, including a bus line. On both sides are unique shops, some set back in courtyards. Lots of cafes, restaurants and historic buildings. The best of the Marais.

Love this street, great people watching, many shops. this is one of the main streets that leads into the marais from the west. Streets are closed to cars on sunday so that is the best day, even better when sunny.

Great street to walk on a Sunday as it has many open shops, lots of people walking about and sometimes some entertainment. Today there was a jazz band playing. The musicians were very good and it attracted a lot of people. The street also has...More

Now one of Paris's most exclusive shopping areas and super-popular, so much so that the crowds spill off the sidewalks and block one of the few cross-town streets in the Marais. Cafes and restaurants.

A friend and I headed over to Le Marais for an afternoon of shopping/browsing. They do have some wonderful boutiques on Rue des Francs Bourqeois to spend some money in. Our afternoon was cut short due to rain, but I would go back again.

Walk along the streets, enjoy a day. Locals hang out here too. Combine it with Pompodiu, at the end of the street take a rest at Place des Vosges, the small park surrounded with nice historical looking buildings.

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

Travelnutty you helped me a short while ago when I was querying the size of beds in an apartment. We were unable to book the apartment anyway but were offered another which we were happy with apart from it only having one bathroom for six of us. Now the owner has come back today with a brand new apartment he's just taken over with two bathrooms. My query is, will we regret moving from Rue Etienne Marcel to Rue Des Francs Bourgeois? I've looked them up on a Paris map and they don't seem far...More

Le Dôme du Marais, rue des Francs Bourgeois (7 Replies)
I have been reccomended this restaurant for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. I understand it is a fish restaurant but please excuse this question but one of our party is not a fish lover, if we were to go here do they serve other things like steak for instance. :o) Could any one give me an indication of a typical menu. Many thanks

Hello! Unless they've very recently changed their menu, the Dome du Marais is in no way a fish restaurant. Maybe you're mixing it up with the Dome Montparnasse which is a huge brasserie and an insitution for seafood but in a different area altogether?
