Le Marais is a fun, vibrant, eclectic neighborhood in Paris that should not be missed. After many trips to Paris, I would recommend this are over the Latin Quarter in fact. The shopping is fun, always a great find down its quaint streets and the restaurants, Les Philosophies in particular, are delicious. Definitely worth the visit!

I had heard great things about Le Marais and I was not disappointed, it was exactly as I had imagined Paris. Small streets with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Definitely worth a visit.

What a lovely place to visit. We enjoyed a tasty meal at one f the many restaurants. French Onion Soup and a delicious pork dish on a chilly day in Paris was just super. A very friendly waiter and he then recommended a lovely desert. This is a must see place when in Paris. Lovely buildings and the Picasso Museum... More

Having been to the Marais for over 5 decades now, it always fascinates me anew how this quarter evolves and strives. So many new and interesting businesses and such a wealth of wonderful bistros, bars and restaurants!

So much to see in the Marais. You can see how Paris looked like architecturally in the 16th to 18th century. Narrow cobblestone streets, old buildings with big gates, lovely and lively little boulangeries, fromageries, brasseries, chocolatiers. We walked almost all the streets in the area and loved it. You will find very peaceful and relaxing spots to have some... More

Le Marais is one of the few Paris neighbourhoods that was not demolished and rebuilt by Hausmann under Napoleron's orders in the 19th century. As a result, it offers a magical window of what Paris looked like architecturally in the 16th to 18th century. Narrow cobblestone alleyways, grand gated heritage buildings, and quaint little boulangeries, fromageries, brasseries, chocolatiers, and yes... More

We stayed at a flat in Le Marais. The streets were so cozy. We loved the shops and restaurants. Crepes, Falafel, Croissants and Coffee. I truly enjoyed all the shops, restaurants and food carts.

This area is probably the most Parisian to me! The place de Vosges is just a must see with all the art galleries and cafes around makes it so French and full of locals and not tourists which is so refreshing! Also the small boutiques and up coming brands are there so it's an interesting area. Carette is a must... More

We love The Marais for its brilliant location and interesting streets. Just relaxing in the Place de Vosges on a sunny day with a coffee and a good book is worth it on its own. If it's raining, check out the free Musee Carnavalet.

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.
