This walk is part of the top 5 of the most beautiful walks in Paris.
The Marais district has a lot of charm, it has lived several lives and has often been transformed. The Marais knew its golden age in the 17th century when it was the favorite district of the great nobility.
There are still many private mansions dating from this period, the mansions are magnificent buildings built to house a whole family of the nobility as well as their servants. All this heritage is very well preserved and can still be seen today.
The Marais has many other assets, such as the density of museums, impressive in such a small area: Picasso Museum, Museum of Judaism, Cognac-Jay Museum, Carnavalet Museum (free), National Archives Museum (free). You will always find something that interests you.
Finally, and this is an important point, you won't have to walk much, the neighborhood is not very big, you don't really need a map, you can always discover something new, you have to let yourself be carried by the atmosphere of the place.
This is one of the essential walks if you come to visit Paris. You can trust us.
