Tour Description

Not only do the Parisians adore the Marais, most visitors also fall in love with this very special part of 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!

Spared from 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 café terraces where the fashionable hang out by day and by night. Visit the traditional Jewish quarter, where you can taste the best falafel in the city, and 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, as you stroll through some of the most delightful streets in the city.

Dynamic and modern, yet steeped in history and overflowing with charm, the Marais is the perfect place to wander accompanied by an expert local guide, and soak up the atmosphere of contemporary and historical Paris.
