Le Marais: museums, shopping and where to eat
Le Marais is one of my favourite districts of Paris. That is why I recommend lots of accommodation that are in this area of Paris. I love it because it is a district where new and traditional mix. You can breathe the autenthic Parisian atmosphere and discover the latest boutique after a second. After exploring the Marais many times, I decided to propose a list of things to do and places to go in the beautiful Marais!
If you don’t stay in this area and you want to visit it, I suggest taking the metro. You can get off at Hotel de Ville, Saint-Paul, Pont Marie, Cité…
