  • Marais - Saint-Paul might be the best area to stay in Paris for you.
    Marais - Saint-Paul
    Musée Picasso, Place des Vosges and the Pompidou Centre might be this
    neighbourhood's landmarks but Marais - Saint Paul is so much more
    to its eclectic bohemian, arty, jewish and LGBT populations.

 

Place des Vosges, Pompidou Centre, Notre Dame, Bastille, Île Saint-Louis, Le Fer a Cheval, La Belle Hortense, rue des Rosiers, Chez Janou, Musée Picasso, Musée Carnavalet

From the hip rue des Francs Bourgeois to the old Jewish ghetto around rue des Rosiers, Le Marais is one of the most lively and historic areas of Paris, bustling with galleries, urban fashion outlets, cafés, restaurants and bars. Sip a glass of something at the zinc bar in Le Fer à Cheval, or next door in Les Philosophes and La Belle Hortense. Stand in line at l'As du Fallafel for yes, you guessed it, the best takeaway falafel in Paris.

Cultural and artistic venues dot the neighbourhood - Musée Picasso, Musée Carnavalet, Place des Vosges and the Pompidou Centre.

Share the best chocolate mousse while shoulder to shoulder with your fellow diners at Chez Janou. Amble down the narrow, cobbled streets of Saint Paul and across the river to the Latin Quarter, passing through enchanting Île St Louis. Notre Dame and Bastille are equally convenient.

Everything was walkable…

… and for our day trips we utilized the bus or metro. The location was perfect. There was shopping, bakeries, stores and restaurants everywhere. When we were hungry, we just went out walking to find something that tickled our fancy.

The Marais is great for strolling, shopping and eating…

… Metro stops, including Hotel de Ville and Saint Paul, make it easy to get anywhere else you want to go.

Setting for lunch at Pizza Momo on rue Saint-Antoine

Sur place ou emporter (eat in or take out) - probably the most popular pizza joint in Saint Paul.

A few doors from Pizza Momo, Veger Saint Paul is very reliable for fresh juice and fruits.

Don't forget that Saint-Paul borders the Seine ...
