From the iPad mural overlooking the Park, many shops are now closed. This has a history but looks tired in spite of it all.

Secret garden in the middle of Marais, nice park surrounded by incredible nice houses with long corridors, next to Hugo's house. Lovely place!

Beautiful park square surrounded by great buildings. Nice place to lie down in the grass and relax. Shops and restaurants line the square. Great little spot!

Place des Vosges is a great place to walk around. The square is a nice relaxing place to sit and read surrounded by lots of cafes and galleries right in Le Marais with tons of shops to visit as well.

My biggest tip here is to go early in the morning on a Sunday. When I visited, the entire Place was completely empty, I was the only person there (about 7.30am). I sat and read about Louis' games he would play, and just imagined what it would have been like centuries ago. The 'apartements' around the Place are just beautiful. Go and get a coffee from nearby Bastille, and go and sit, and enjoy!
