Here, no large boulevard. The Marais has escaped from the Haussmann project. The Marais is somehow a "rescued" neighbourhood in Paris. It is an architectural testimony of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
Le Marais is the Jewish quarter, the Gay district, the nest of young designers. You will eat delicious pastries with flavours from Eastern Europe. You will buy clothes, jewels and objects that cannot be found anywhere else.

The very old authentic Parisian neighborhood lies in the center of Paris known as le Marais. Other then being one of the most expansive square meters, this village inside the city features old wooden structure houses which tilt due to time load, narrow streets and charming brasseries. A lot of Art galleries are to be found here too, specifically around the Place des Vosgues.

This cute upscale neighborhood is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll, with nice restaurants and great shopping.

Le Marais is known as the Jewish Quarter of Paris. Victor Hugo's home is nearby in the Place des Vosges , the stores are more modern and upscale, but the area itself remains a historic and lovely neighborhood. It's definitely one of my favorite neighborhoods in Paris.

Marais is the neighborhood where all the new designers, art galleries and the hip new stuff in Paris are set and happening. The streets are narrow, the shops are small but there is an infinity of good restaurants, good shops and good cafes here. Come without a plan and stroll around the little streets looking for delightful windows and little surprises.

The Marais neighborhood is chic and casual enough to hang out in. There are lots of restaurants and music clubs as well as little boutiques, and it's very accessible as it's close to the Bastille metro.

Probably my favorite neighborhood in Paris.. though its increased popularity has taken a toll. Though best known as Paris's gay neighborhood -- there is something here for everyone. Gorgeous architecture, great boutiques, plenty of spots for a nice glass of wine and a nibble.

this is the jewish quarter of paris, so of course, you can enjoy great jewish food! Most of the rdstaurants will have people standing on the street who scream at you to eat their food. This kinda pisses me off, but i found this wonderful place called "pitzman" which offers great falafels and some oriental sweets in a nice atmosphere.

The oldest area of paris. Marais means the marsh - which was drained in order to broaden the city. The Islands nearby are the first inhabited parts (they were called by the gallic community Lutecia over 2000 years ago) but nothing remains from that celtic period and very litle from its medieval period.
