Tour Description

The Marais retains the old world charm of narrow, winding streets, hidden courtyards and beautiful medieval and Renaissance mansions. See the the Hotel de Sens, a magnificent palace built in 1500 – children will love searching for the cannonball still lodged in the wall! Hear stories of kings jousting and see if you can tell the difference between the real and fake facades at the Place des Vosges, one of the most beautiful squares in Paris. Discover cool boutiques on the rue des Francs Bourgeois and stroll by the café terraces, perfect for sitting and watching the world go by. Visit the traditional Jewish quarter, home of the best falafel in the city and don’t forget to check out some of the newest and best pastry shops!

Along the way, younger visitors can keep their eyes open for all kinds of street art – from space invaders to painted murals, decorated street signs and pasted paper art, there is something to spot on every corner! Walk past the iconic Centre Pompidou, so scandalous when it was first built, now loved by locals and visitors alike. See the fairytale architecture of Paris’ City Hall, and end your tour with a stroll by the riverside.

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. Not only do the Parisians adore the Marais, most visitors also fall in love with this very special part of the city. We’re sure you’ll want to come back again and again.
