Great atmosphere and great shopping in the Marais Quarter

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

The Marais Quarter was developed in the 12th century, making it one of Paris’ oldest districts, which gives it a unique and interesting character. You will find some fantastic architecture here, as well as the picture perfect wide boulevards that Paris is famous for.

The shops are as intriguing as the area itself. You will discover handcrafted jewellery and gifts, as well as antiques, art and some gorgeous boutiques. There is also a large number of art galleries in the Marais Quarter so if you like to combine your shopping with some culture, this area will be perfect for you.

And of course, this is Paris, so when you want to take the weight off your feet and soak up the atmosphere there are always lots of bars, cafes and restaurants just waiting for you to enjoy a coffee, a glass of wine or something to eat. Sit outside and enjoy some people watching, too.
