The historical Marais
Draw a rough triangle between the Place de la République, the Place de la Bastille and the Hôtel de Ville and you will have marked out Paris's Marais district, straddling the 3rd and 4th arrondissements.
With its numerous bars and restaurants, its shops, art galleries and museums, the Marais is nowadays one of the liveliest places in the capital. It is famous for its wonderful 17th century private mansions lining its streets, which have witnessed an incredibly rich history.
During this walk, be curious and look everywhere ! You will discover a lot of mascarons, original shop signs and gardens closed by railings or ajar carriage entrances... Some of them don't have a story but they will carry you away in the very specific and contrasted atmosphere of this district.
