This excursion will take you through the Marais district, around its monuments, heritage and fashionable addresses. Stroll along the streets of a lively place that has many facets.
Located on Paris's Right Bank between part of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements, Le Marais gets its name from an old swampy area occupied from the 12th century by religious orders. Although it has become a trendy quarter with many fashion boutiques, the Marais also has a very important historic core. A district bursting with colourful gay culture, where restaurants, art galleries and trendy bookshops are plentiful.
From the elegant Place des Vosges to the Musee Carnavalet, our city guide's tour with commentary will explain all about the heritage of the sites that marked the 18th century and the French Revolution, while also showing you the Marais' contemporary places of interest that give it its present reputation.
