What you'll do

See the playground for Paris’s most trendy – the crooked, cobbled, historical lanes that are alive with bars, restaurants, vintage shops, and jewelry boutiques. But there’s more to Le Marais than gorgeous “I-woke-up-like-this” locals queuing for pita at L'As du Fallafel. With your host to lead the way, you’ll explore its thriving art scene at upmarket galleries, amble through Musée Picasso, and visit iconic sites like Rue de Montmorency, where Nicolas Flamel’s house – the oldest in Paris – stands. Stumble across the district’s hidden secrets, like the utterly picturesque Passage de l’Ancre, where a quaint boutique sells umbrellas and walking sticks, and relax with a coffee or a glass of wine at a classic bistro. Très chic. 

Where you’ll go

In central Paris, on the north side of the Seine riverbank, sits Le Marais – or “the swamp” in English. Don’t panic though, it’s a lot more élégant than it sounds, because this district has changed a lot during its 900-year history of bloody battles and royal residents. So much, in fact, that it’s widely considered the trendiest district in Paris. You’ll be teleported to the Middle Ages as you stroll the narrow, cobbled lanes past the half-timbered houses of 800-year-old Rue de Barres towards Marché des Enfants Rouges – the oldest covered market in Paris. Gallery-hop through vintage boutique-lined streets, and sit down for a macaron at a quiet spot: Place Sainte Catherine, a hidden, tree-covered square just five minutes from the manicured lawns of the famous Place des Vosges.
