The Marais

Marais district place des Vosges

This very old district of Paris, where Knights’ Templars settled, is full of historic events and mansions. Royal residences as well as aristocratic buildings mainly dating back to the 17th and 18th century, it is a well preserved part of the city, with many little gardens. The Jewish Quarter although, limited to just a few streets nowadays, is full of shops and restaurants and is a fantastic place to stroll around.

My favorite walking tours

Join me on one of my favourite walking tours around the Marais quarter and its amazing old mansions. The Place des Vosges is undoubtedly the most magnificent square of Paris to me.

The arcades of Paris with its old fashioned shops and architecture dating back to the 19th century show reminiscence of French writers like Maupassant, Proust or Colette.
