WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT!
To every Parisian, Le Marais is a dream place to live and just be. Come with us to understand what attracts locals here so much. We keep no secrets from you and open doors as we wander through cobbled winding streets and aristocratic mansions. Meet us in the heart of the Marais by Saint-Paul & Saint Louis church, and let’s start our Marais tour of architecture, food & artsy spirit.
Nothing more than a marshy land in early Paris history, Le Marais became the most elegant area of the French capital. Our guides find the best locations for you to admire the Golden Age of Gothic Architecture and the birth of French Classicism, two styles that have made Paris, Paris. You will also visit the stunning Hotel de Sully and the well-admired Place des Vosges square. An incredible journey through time and beauty.
Today, Le Marais also means trendy and high-end food stores. Your guides know where to get the best samples of eclair or macaron pastries. Best coffee and tea boutiques, wine bars at every corner and of course sweets and pastry maestros are to be found on our itinerary. The Jewish community has a lot to do with this tradition of food lovers. We will stop in the heart of the Pletzl, Rue des Rosiers, to understand the history of the area and talk about Judaism in France.
On our private tour of Le Marais, we also want you to get a feel for the artsy vibe of the neighborhood, and how this saved it from destruction. From independent art galleries to the world famous Pompidou center and Picasso Museum, let’s understand the complex world of modern art, what are the dynamics and the hot topics of the months to come.
