Overview

This 2-hour private guided walking tour of the Marais takes you to a part of Paris that has the most layered and unusual history of all the city’s boroughs. Originally a swamp (where the name comes from), the land of the Marais was drained and it became habitable Many different communities were drawn to it - the Templar nights, the Jewish community, the opulent aristocrats of the 17th century. 

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 mutually opposed faces of this unique part of the city, and explain how vital it was, and still is, for the development of Paris. 

The Marais is now going through a second renaissance, geared towards becoming a hipster mecca of Paris, a place where chic gourmet restaurants find themselves next to trashy second hand stores. Your guide will delight in making you discover all of these aspects of Marais.
