Know More about this tour
The Marais district has so much to offer locals and tourists alike that it could function as a city holiday destination in its own right! Historic mansions and squares over 400 years old, high fashion and design boutiques, museums and contemporary art galleries and a wide selection of quality restaurants combine to tempt visitors to spend hours in the neighborhood. Joining a private tour will allow you to visit at your own pace and see the scenery from a local’s perspective.
In the 1860s, much of Old Paris was torn down under Napoleon III, who was eager to replace the congested medieval alleys and narrow houses with the wide avenues and imposing façades we recognize around the city today. The Second Empire collapsed before that policy could be extended to the Marais district, so this neighborhood preserves some of the feel of centuries past. Your guide can show you through winding streets opening into elegant squares lined with stately mansions in what is still today one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Paris. You’ll hear about the centuries-old history of the neighborhood featuring tales of jousting, romance, treason and revolution, as you stroll through the Place des Vosges, Europe’s oldest royal square. The medieval Hotel de Sens contrasts with the baroque St. Paul’s, and every street is lined with café terraces populated at all hours and in all weather. The Jewish Quarter in Paris is here as well, with a vibrant and inspiring history, and the best falafel in the city. Add great writers, and innovative pastry chefs... what more could you need?
Cutting-edge and classic, evolving and eternal, the Marais invites you to wander in become one of the locals. Your engaging guide will give you the keys to the neighborhood.
