Tour Description

Discover more about this tour

The Marais is the home of the city’s historic Jewish community, as well as one of Paris’s most popular neighborhoods. Join us as we explore the area’s best-kept secrets and discover why it continues to enchant locals and tourists today!


“Marais” is the Old French word for “swamp” but during our 2.5 hour walking tour, you’ll find out why this neighborhood is anything but! We keep our groups small—no more than 8 people per visit—so you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and engage in dialogue with one of our certified guides, as they walk you through the history of this fascinating area.

You’ll gaze at the Church of Saint Paul Saint Louis, a study in Renaissance Era opulence, before moving onto the Hotel de Sully and the Musée Carnavalet, examples of the royal residences that once filled this district, and the Place des Vosges, a gorgeous public square. From here, you’ll fast forward to the 18th and 19th centuries, when the city’s Jewish community settled here, and walk past tempting bakeries and elegant shops on the rue des Francs Bourgeois. Your tour will end at the Hotel de Ville or the Pompidou Center, both architectural masterpieces from very different periods and both undeniable treasures of the one-of-a-kind Marais.

Highlights Generally Include (but are not limited to):

Church of Saint Paul Saint Louis, one of the most gorgeous facades in the city

Hotel de Sully, a mansion like you’ve never seen before

Place des Vosges, where Parisians go to picnic
