Paris 3rd, The Marais Neighbourhood Guide

A little bit bohemian and known as the Jewish area of Paris, the Marais has a mixed history which makes it one of the more diverse neighbourhoods of Paris. It's an area that has been relatively untouched by developers, both modern and historical. And so the neighbourhood is what all of Paris was like in the early 1800s. Small cobblestone streets and cosy lanes. This intimacy made it an ideal place for small boutique retailers to move in that's exactly what has happened. The area is now home many small cocktail bars, restaurants, cafes and the popular Enfants Rouges market.
