Explore Le Marais - Bastille (4e)

Imagine Paris as it was hundreds of years ago and you’ll get the Marais, one of the most charming locations in the city by a landslide. Peaceful, narrow cobbled streets, compressed townhouses, crooked medieval lanes filled with little patisseries, perfumeries and trendy boutiques, shroud the area in a unique village atmosphere. Originally dating back to 13th century, the 4th arrondissement has long been revived – its trendy cafes are always lively and apartments here are some of the most sought after in the capital. Quite frankly - you could easily spend your entire stay in Paris in this neighborhood alone, it just has that much appeal. There are also art galleries and design shops galore, as well as numerous museums dotted about, like the Musee Carnavalet, Musee Picasso and the Centre Pompidou to the west.
