The jewish quarter is a lot of fun! We roamed around and found 'THE falafel area' Lines galore but worth the wait! DO NOT MISS the Memorial de la Shoah! It was one of the best museums Ive seen! Plan to spend some time there.

I enjoyed seeing and praying in the beautifully ornate Synagogue and ate a falafel at the Pitzman restaurant right nearby.

This place is loaded with old buildings and I think is really great just walking around seeing everything.

Part of the Marais is the old Jewish Quarter - which is still the Jewish Quarter. Wander about and absorb the character and history of the area and visit the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Memorial. Enjoy the area food. Have some falafel and shawarma....More

This museum contains an excellent history of Judaism. It is centrally located in the Marais and easily found when walking around the area. The exhibits are well displayed and I learned a great deal during my visit.

The old Jewish Quarter in Paris is also the Marais, loaded with historic buildings, museums, cafes, restaurants & high-end shops. The heart of where you want to be. But also where there once was a vibrant community wiped out in the Holocaust. Still some remnants:...More

Best falafel stands in Paris, maybe the world. Lots of markers noting this historic Jewish neighborhood, now recycled as a center of tourism and high-end shopping.
