Located on a land-filled swamp, this revitalized neighborhood, once a center of high culture, fell into disrepair following the French Revolution, but has regained prominence.

In my opinion, the Marais should be enjoyed via your feet, i.e., walking and enjoying the atmosphere. Nice alleys, many cafes and lots of culture.

Just like Montmartre this iconic area is being destroyed by its very success. The key areas are completely overwhelmed by tourists and commercialization. Still worth a visit for a few sites [Pl Vosges, church, some back streets] and to tick it off your list -...More

This is an area which has not been destroyed by too much modernisation and keeps its medieval charm. The narrow one way streets are full of bakers, designer clothes, gifts, perfumiers, and museums. The Bastille metro and surroundings are an iconic place to start your...More

The square of the Vogge used to be full of restaurants, now it is full of beautiful galleries. Le marais is wonderful with many lanes, fabulous shops, a very pleasant area to walk bye.

We walked past this place and found it to be a lovely attraction with a lot of sculptures to see. If you are near the Eiffel tower and fancy a long walk then you can always take a detour for a scenic route

Full of history, fashion, excellent cuisine, and beautiful homes, the Marais is a blend of many things. Check out small boutique shops, sample local cuisine, or stumble onto a piece of history all in the same place. Highly recommend visiting!

There are three streets where you can find good food, shopping and the hustle & bustle of Paris. Start on Bretagne, right on Vielle de Temple, and right again on Rue de Francs Bourgeoise. Some streets are walking only, maybe a scooter or a bicycle,...More

We stayed here and I'd have love to never leave. This was the most charming community. Vibrant with shops and cafes. Lovely architecture and great accessibility. I'd live there quite happily.

The Marais is probably my favorite area of Paris for just milling around. Beautiful buildings, interesting museums, lovely shops, great restaurants. Allow lots of time for the Marais.

What is your favorite restaurant in Le Marais? (7 Replies)
We'll be staying in VIP #115 the last week of October in the Marais and was wondering what your favorites eateries are? Also, has anyone had beautiful weather the last week of October?

We've had two nice meals in the Marais, one at Robert & Louise, 64, Rue Vieille du Temple and one at Le Colimacon one block away at 44, Rue Vieille du Temple. We passed an interesting Lebonese restaurant on our last trip and plan to try it out in the future, La Taverne du Nil, 16-18 rue Le Regrattier. Pjk

We will arrive on Eurostar at Gare du Nord, Paris. What is the approximate cost of a taxi to Le Marais (Rue des Blancs Manteaux)? Is there a direct bus from Gare du Nord to the Marais area or nearby? We will have a full-size suitcase and a carry-on each. Thanks very much. Pamela and Susannah
