Owner description: 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.

This area is very interesting and picturesque. We enjoyed walking through here. Unfortunately the Picasso Museum is closed until 2013.

Often overlooked the Marias has been turned into a very trendy area for food, wine and shopping in very trendy small boutique shops. Lots of locals mingling with the tourists lucky enough to find the area. Marais means The Swamp.

If there is a more elegant square in Paris than the Place des Vosges, I don't know where. And the Shoah Memorial...very moving (and no, I'm not Jewish, but I am French.)

My wife and I visited the Musee de Carnavalet in late September 2012. It is where Madame de Sevigne stayed when she was part of Louis XIV's court, and we know so much about his reign because of the letters she wrote to her daughter. The building now houses a very interesting museum, which I could best describe as an overview of Parisian history. It's also free, which surprised me.

We spent a few hours there seeing the various rooms and exhibits and then walked back through the Marais to our hotel (Le Bristol). It was a wonderful Sunday afternoon and it seemed that all of Paris was out for a walk. We did a lot of window shopping, stopped for some chocolates, and eventually had lunch at a bistro. We realized we could have spent a few days there, but unfortunately we had to leave Paris the next day. Oh well, now we have yet another reason to return.

Hadn't been to this area before and a local American friend showed us around the area. Loved walking in this area. Great shopping opportunities.
