What to expect

Explore the Marais, the most interesting and diverse neighborhood in Paris, on a 2-hour private guided walk. Learn about its past and visit sites such as Les Halles, Place des Vosges, and the Pletzel area – the historic center of the city’s Jewish community.

This 2-hour private guided walking tour of the Marais takes you to a part of Paris that has the most interesting history of all the city’s neighborhoods. Originally a swamp, the land of the Marais was drained and it became habitable, soon enticing settlers. It developed into the center of the city’s Jewish community, remaining so to this day. Over the years it has had its share of ups and downs, falling from a chic residential area that was home to aristocrats and even a royal court, to a best-avoided shady slum.

During the tour, your guide will show you the many faces of this unique neighborhood, and tell you some interesting stories and about important historical events. The Marais is now going through a second renaissance and is reliving its finest days. With your guide, you’ll have the opportunity to see the best it has to offer.
