Le Marais is a popular district in Paris and definitely worth to see.The Eiffel tower is nice but the hidden treasures of the Marais are much more special. Don’t look for big sights or department stores. But, take a look at the local people and surrounding. You will notice that there are many falafel restaurants, craft shops and Jewish people. Not surprising because Le Marais was previously known as the Jewish Quarter. Characterized by wholesalers and leather goods. The pace of life is slower than average district in Paris. Quiet and peaceful. The old doors, narrow streets and the smell of traditional food, give you a sense of how it has been before. Yes, been before. Times are changing…the expensive brands want to settle here, housing prices are very high and today it’s also a popular district for the gay scene of Paris ;)
Gladly, the history of the Marais returns everyday. So we can still enjoy the atmosphere of this amazing district.
