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 one of my favourite Parisian quarters with a great vibe and safe feel. It's the Jewish area so is culturally interesting and easy to navigate. Try the Picasso gallery and stop for food, drinks or ice cream.

It's been a few years since we last strolled through the Marais. Things have gone totally upscale. Shops are now almost all high end boutique chains, from clothing to olive oils, jams and teas. The venerable Cafe Breizh is now franchised all over the city...More

We stayed in this neighborhood in a small boutique hotel, and could not have been happier with the location. It seems like hundreds of small restaurants, sidewalk cafes everywhere, and some beautiful public squares. My understanding is this is currently the "hip" Paris neighborhood, and...More

The marsh is my favorite area: it is a place of freedom: no homophobia, no racism, the most "cool" district of Paris, do not miss to walk in the streets "old temple, rue des Roses.

boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture

My daughter and I will be arriving in Paris soon. We will be staying in St. Germain de Pres but would like to spend one evening in Le Marais. Can anyone recommend a restaurant for dinner - preferably with outside dining? Also, what would be the best evening activities for a mother & 20 yo daughter?

The Marais is so full of good restaurants we always find it best to just walk around, look at menus (they all have their menus posted outside), and just see what appeals to us in the moment. Lots do have al fresco dining... More

The Marais is an area of Paris so you could spend as few as two days or up to a week. Walk over to the Ile St. Louis for a different feel.

Sorry I am clueless in that department. Paris is quite dog friendly, but I think it might depend on the size of the dogs.
