Know More about this tour

A private tour allows you to visit at your own pace and explore the area like a local, with a local.
Napoleon III tore down the old city of Paris in the 1860s, replacing it with the wide boulevards and typical architecture that we see throughout the rest of the city, but the Marais was spared and retains the old world charm of narrow, winding streets, hidden courtyards and beautiful medieval and Renaissance mansions. Your guide will show you some of the most charming squares in the city, surrounded by lavish mansions where the wealthiest royal courtiers lived (today still some of the most expensive real estate in the city!) See the Place des Vosges, the first royal square in Europe, the Hotel de Sens, a magnificent palace built in 1500, the first baroque style church in Paris, and much more. Hear stories of jousts, love affairs, treason and revolution, as you stroll through some of the most delightful streets in the city. Discover cutting edge boutiques and admire the caf terraces where the fashionable hang out by day and by night. Visit the Jewish quarter, where you can taste the best falafel in the city, see the homes of some of Frances greatest literary figures, and dont forget to check out some of the newest and best pastry shops in the city!
Dynamic and modern, yet steeped in history and overflowing with charm, the Marais is the perfect place to wander, accompanied by a passionate local guide, and soak up the atmosphere of contemporary and historical Paris.
