Often referred to as “Old Paris,” Le Marais exudes old-world charm and modern-day functionality in the city’s core. Cobblestone streets wind through Le Marais' dizzying network of hidden courtyards, provocative galleries, and ivy-covered boulangeries. The neighborhood’s meticulously styled aesthetic of painted windowpanes and antique relics is not an accident. Le Marais was well kept by its once thriving Jewish population, and its recent incarnation as an LGBTQ hotspot keeps it trim and tailored.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
