over hyped as being cool and gay. gay it is. cool it's not. perhaps good for someone on a tight budget looking for ethnic foods. also for small shops for cheese, wine, a baguette, pate. bring your picnic blanket and head for Parc des Vosges!

We stayed In an Airbnb in the Marais district. The neighborhood is lively with many cafés and shops. We were close to Saint Paul. We liked it very much for seeing all of Paris as it was easy to use the metro and go anywhere.

The Place des Vosges is beautiful, and one of the few parks in Paris where you are allowed to sit on the grass, if you can find a spot. The streets in the Marais were too crowded to even walk down on a Sunday afternoon.
