Walk in the neighborhood of the Marais in Paris

A visit to discover the many facets of the Marais in the center of Paris.

The Marais is located in the heart of Paris. As its name suggests (marsh) the place was a swampy area. it's now changed and we can see the different stages of its development over the centuries. The district had been for a while the headquarters of the nobility who had built sumptuous mansions like the hotel of Lamoignon. In the twentieth century the district hosted a large Jewish community. Today it is one of the centers of the homosexual community of Paris. All this history makes the visit very interesting, you move quickly from the past to modernity. It should be noted that the district is pedestrian the weekends, there are many trendy shops open and the small streets are often crowded. Do not hesitate to visit this area a mix of many influences. One of the most beautiful Museum of Paris "the Carnavalet Museum" is closed for refurbishment until the end of 2019". 3 years of renovation!
