We loved our stay in Le Marais! We arrived on the TBV and Les Tournelles, our hotel, was just a couple Metro stops for the Gare. We attended the Opera, went to the Picasso Museum and shopped 'till we dropped! A wonderful district for a quick trip to Paris.

Cozy easy little place not far from city centre, reachable by metro. Worth to visit some locals boutique and shops with quality product and great deals ! Grab lunch or drink at small restaurant or cafe bar, pub. Amazing church, St. Paul St. Louis, incredible architecture. Do visit some gallery and museum such as Picasso museum.

I am drawn to the same places over the course of many years to see how they change, and I am happy to report that despite the coming and going of many bland shops, the Place des Voges in the Marais district of Paris is still a very beautiful and atmospheric place to visit. One is immediately struck by the... More

Le Marais is a fun, vibrant, eclectic neighborhood in Paris that should not be missed. After many trips to Paris, I would recommend this are over the Latin Quarter in fact. The shopping is fun, always a great find down its quaint streets and the restaurants, Les Philosophies in particular, are delicious. Definitely worth the visit!

What a lovely place to visit. We enjoyed a tasty meal at one f the many restaurants. French Onion Soup and a delicious pork dish on a chilly day in Paris was just super. A very friendly waiter and he then recommended a lovely desert. This is a must see place when in Paris. Lovely buildings and the Picasso Museum... More

Having been to the Marais for over 5 decades now, it always fascinates me anew how this quarter evolves and strives. So many new and interesting businesses and such a wealth of wonderful bistros, bars and restaurants!

So much to see in the Marais. You can see how Paris looked like architecturally in the 16th to 18th century. Narrow cobblestone streets, old buildings with big gates, lovely and lively little boulangeries, fromageries, brasseries, chocolatiers. We walked almost all the streets in the area and loved it. You will find very peaceful and relaxing spots to have some... More

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.
