"Le Marais" Marais District - Le Marais Tip by IIGUANA

Marais District - Le Marais, Paris: 31 reviews and 68 photos

Funny that I don't have a picture of the district where I "lived" for more than a week. But anyway, Le Marais district is worth a visit.
The district itself has great shops and restaurants, surrounded by superb façades. The neighbourhood itself is a paradise for pedestrians (like myself): you can quietly wander around, enjoy a cup of tea, get a bite of a falafel or devour a brunch. Everything is open on Sundays, so be sure to join parisians on the last day of the week. The area is surrounded by mansions the nobility had in early times, that give you the "old-but-rich" feeling...
Le Marais has become the centre of gay culture in Paris over the last few years. So there are many men & decoration stores, plus a lot of places to eat, like restaurants and bakery shops.
