Located on a land-filled swamp, this revitalized neighborhood, once a center of high culture, fell into disrepair following the French Revolution, but has regained prominence.

Le Marais is an upscale district with lovely eateries where you can engage in gastronomic adventures. The Picasso museum is just around the corner and you can spend the day there and then have a delicious lunch. It also has numerous apparel stores that sell fashionable stuff

It's like being in a town in the city, especially during the week-end, it becomes pedestrian! The place to be for fooding, hidden gardens and museum!

I stayed in the Marais for one week and was so pleased that I was no more than 20 minutes from anywhere in Paris. The Metro stations were all close by and there were great natural food markets and restaurants everywhere! I will stay in the Marais next time in Paris.

We visited Marais via a walking tour. It was a truly lovely area to visit. Lots of cafés as well as the Picasso Museum. Interesting street art and wall art also known as graffiti. Although this wall art is illegal in France it is by far everywhere and nicely created. Additionally, the location invites you to wander into the Jewish... More

When I lived in Paris, Le Marais was well known as the former Jewish area. It had wonderful delis and offered a unique experience, including shops you could find nowhere else in Paris. Then, I had heard it had become a very popular place for young people to live. Now, you can find many interesting boutiques as well as brasseries.... More

We stayed in the Le Marais neighborhoud based on recommendation for a first vist to Paris. The streets are dirty. Very dirty. And it is far from all the main attractions. Rather stay closer and on the otherside of the river. Will definitely not recommend Le Marais for first time visit, it will spoil your opinion of Paris.

A cool section of Paris to visit, but really? I would not consider this worthy of its hype. Nice narrow streets, shopping yes, but for the average tourist not a big deal.

We are currently staying in Le Marais. The area is fun and lively with a lot going on. The restaurants and bars are wonderful, the shopping is super cool, but if you wander back towards Place du Temple you will find gorgeous residential areas with lovely parks, stunning architecture, and a neighborhood you never want to leave! Le Marais is... 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.
