A network of historic and narrow streets, filled with individual boutiques, bars, restaurants and historic buildings, including Place des Vosges, the Picasso museum and many more. Stay there, visit there, eat there.

Nice neighbourhood to walk through, with lots of interesting shops and references to its Jewish past & present. Especially nice is the Place des Vosges with its art galleries.

Marais is the old Paris. On Sundays the close some of the streets and you can walk easier. It is really nice zone and dont forget to go the Rue Rosiers and take a picture and eat the famous L'as du Fallafel

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
