Full Description of Le Marais Private Walking Tour


Explore another cultural dimension of the capital by visiting the Marais, a trendy, festive district with a village feel. Formerly a marshy area, the Marais district rose from the ground and quickly developed and became the heart of the Jewish community in Paris. With time it has undergone several transformations, going from a chic residential area housing the homes of wealthy aristocrats and even the Royal Court, to a neighborhood in ruins. Today, the Marais is at its finest days, multi-faceted offering a leisurely stroll along cobblestone streets with trendy bars, restaurants, shops and even restaurants for foodies.

Starting at the historic Place des Vosges, originally Place Royale, it is not only the oldest planned square in Paris but also one of the most beautiful ones. You will walk along the Rue des Rosiers, a major center of the Paris Jewish community where you can find public notices, specialised book-stores, numerous good restaurants and delis selling kosher food, the place to be to find the best falafel!

Spared by the major Haussmannian works, it is above all a district with exceptional architecture where sumptuous mansions like Hôtel de Sully, museums like Picasso Museum and shopping streets coexist in a typically Parisian atmosphere. A district which reached its golden age in the 17th century, called the Grand Siècle.  Discover important vestiges of the Philippe Auguste wall (12th century) as well as historical and cultural gems like the Musée Carnavalet (a museum about the history of Paris) and the Picasso Museum. Discover the fashionable part of the district at Rue Vieille du Temple and Francs Bourgeois, home of many little shops, trendy restaurants (Café des musées), fashion houses, and hip galleries. Don"t miss interesting churches like Saint-Paul and Saint Eustache!
