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.

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.

For people who are interested in other cultures (or, are jew, of course), this may be an interesting place. You can find and try kosher food, as well as fallafel and some articles.

While walking the Marais district, my brother and I found we were in Paris’ Jewish sector. Other than signage on some Jewish stores, it was simply a pleasant area. We were not into falafel and diid not dine kosher style, though they had many diners....More

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
