Enjoy an afternoon in Le Marais Dripping in old world elegance yet thoroughly modern in sensibility, Le Marais is one of Paris’ most intriguing neighbourhoods. It spreads across parts of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. Cobblestone streets wind through Le Marais’ dizzying network of hidden courtyards, provocative galleries, and ivy-covered boulangeries.
On a recent trip to Paris, I traveled with the intention of staying off the boulevards and out of the parks, and finding some places that aren’t in guidebooks. And I found them: hidden corners to explore, charming streets to wander down, and nooks and crannies from which you can watch the world go by. Now, I’d like to pass these places on to you so that you, too, can dig a bit deeper and travel a little more off the beaten path.
