Very pretty square

If in Marais this is a nice spot to stop. We sat at a cafe along the fringes to enjoy a coffee and the view.

Gorgeous views all the way around. You can see families playing with their children, couples strolling hand in hand, or people just enjoying a quiet moment with a coffee. Perfect spot to enjoy the sunshine

The recommendation is in the title. Just come and walk around, it is worth a detour. There are cafes but it is the buildings and trees that are attractive

indeed whenever you visit paris this is one of the places you should visit. It is a marvellous place to enjoy lots of art galleries, beautifull restaurants and off course the view off the park is exceptional.

Even though there are some cafes and terraces at Place des Vosges it remains a place of quiet and reflection. Don't forget to read the plaque on the wall at the entrance of the old school reminding us of the deportation in WW2 of more than 11,000 children from there and only about 250 returning.

My feet hurt, so I stopped for a bit in the park. The grass was tatty, the pigeons numerous, and many benches had something that look like poop smeared on them, so check out your bench before plopping down. There are too many visitors for the place to be peaceful, but for a free respite from walking, it is a... More

Very parisian, art galleries all around. Highly recommended when the weather is sunny and warm. Find the house of Victor Hugo around the place.

We walked through here everyday for 4 days - always looked to forward to it. The whole square reminds me a bit of Madrid's Plaza Mayor, except there is a pretty park at the center versus all cobblestones. I happen to really like covered sidewalks (arcades/proticos), so naturally this place appealed to me right away. There are some very nice... More

On our way to the restaurant we passed this wonderful park. I loved the arced of little shops, cafes and bistros at the surrounding of the park. The architecture of the buildings and the facade are worth to look at. My friend told me that Victor Hugo lived here. I think in the spring time it will be very romantic... More

Staying in Le Marais

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.
