This is an extraordinary example of our past when the royals dominated life, arts and culture. A symbol preserved over the past 400 years which we are able to admire today. very pleasant and relaxing, Nice galleries and cafes.

A really beautiful place to stroll, linger, picnic. Sadly, the 'art;' galleries that occupy most of the commercial spaces show the most ghastly tat. Who buys this rubbish?

A lovely stop off whilst on a ramble, this over 400 year old square is just that. 140 metres x 140 metres with a huge statue of Louis X111 in the centre. Surrounded by quaint galleries and cafes it buzzes during peak season and is a little quiet during the winter. Victor Hugo wrote most of Les Miserables at No... More

Place des Voges is an oasis in the middle of the busyness of Paris. I have been in Autum and it was crowded with people enjoying the sunshine but my recent visit was he middle of winter and it was still quite popular but reflective for people to enjoy the gorgeous surroundings

This is one of the more attractive squares in Paris. The elegance of the buildings both commercial and residential with art galleries and restaurants, some very good, on the ground level lend charm to the square which summer and winter attracts people to its park.

Place des Vosges is a remarkable place in Paris, surrounded by beautiful houses and in the middle a park. There are various entrance points into Place des Vosges. Don't miss entering from Rue Rivoli just opposite Monoprix.

This beautiful garden is great for strolling, reading, enjoying good weather. Many interesting art galleries and several nice cafes surround the garden. Victor Hugo's home is a museum in one corner of the square. A taste of real Parisian life.

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.
