I have been in Paris many times before, but one way or another, this was the first time visiting Le Marais ... and I loved it: Small historic streets, cozy boutiques, delicious gourmet shops, and indeed the best falafel I had in my life. This neighborhood has a real good vibe and atmosphere and it will definitely stay on top... More

This is a charming area with individual shops, cafes and restaurants, sitting alongside museums, art galleries and small parks. Easy access to all parts of Paris via Metro or Bus and a good place to walk and explore. It has the feel of a village with lots of famillies and a young vibe.

It's a district of Paris that is safe and great to visit, It's the place of the Jewish community and the Gay community among others. Lots of little clothing stores, and fashion designers stores as wells and various shops, great food places (from different countries, thai/jewish/asian/...etc), museums, art galleries, you name it ...it should be here. It has good vibes... More

Neighbourhood 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 splendour. This neighbourhood 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.
