What you can expect

With its cobbled medieval lanes, centuries old buildings, clusters of upscale boutiques, charming bakeries, and hip cafes, the Marais is well worth exploring on foot - uncover the neighborhood’s secrets with a local guide.

Meet your guide just outside the Pont Marie Métro near the Seine and make your way into the winding, narrow streets of the Marais. Historically the city’s Jewish quarter, this is one of the few pockets of Paris that retains its medieval architecture and atmosphere. Today, it’s also one of the trendiest districts in the City of Light, packed with up-and-coming designer boutiques, nightclubs, some of France’s finest eateries, and the ultra-modern Centre Pompidou.

Listen to your guide share little-known anecdotes and intriguing facts as you roam past historic sights and landmarks like the Place des Vosges, the Archives Nationales, and elegant homes—known as hôtels particuliers—that once belonged to the city’s noblest aristocrats. One of these palatial estates now houses Paris’ world-famous Musée Picasso, which reopened in 2014 after a 5-year renovation project.
