Experience one of the most beloved and vibrant quarters in Paris like a local.

Not only do the Parisians adore the Marais, most visitors also fall in love with this very special part of the city. Spared the massive renovations of 19th century Paris, the Marais retains the old-world charm of narrow streets, quiet courtyards and splendid medieval and Renaissance mansions. Discover cutting edge boutiques and admire the fashionable café terraces. Visit the traditional Jewish quarter where you’ll taste the best falafel in Paris. Don’t forget to check out some of the newest and best pastry shops in the city! Hear stories of jousts, love affairs, treason and revolution from your expert local guide as you stroll through some of the most delightful streets in the city. Combining centuries of history, splendid architecture, high fashion, world-class museums and art galleries, and an amazing restaurant scene, the Marais is not to be missed!
