Paris is full of wonderful treasures, but the Le Marais is one of the best jewels in the city of light. Spanning in the third and fourth districts, the Le Marais has become one of the most exotic and popular city of Paris. However, it is quite far from as being a gay area when it had just established a stronghold in the late seventeenth century. The Marais has a beautiful, palpable cosmopolitan atmosphere, where you will definitely feel very comfortable.
Actually, the gay community blends with the local artists and as well as the Jewish community, who have a good and strong presence. In addition, to this, the neighborhood is quite very lively. You can easily treat yourself to a bit of shopping and can purchase beautiful and elegant products. The neighborhood perfectly offers a good mix of the luxury labels, specialty boutiques and some beautiful thrift shops.
See the numerous art galleries that are located throughout all the Marais. These walls are quite beautiful as framed by genuine artists. To start exploring the area the perfect place to start is to just take a metro to the Bastille unless you walk from the Notre Dame and as well as the Hotel de Ville. Musse Carnavalet, Musse Picasso, Institut Sudedois and the Le Carreau du Temple are some of the exotic nearby destinations that you can see in the Le Marais.
