History and Architectur tour with a Local Guide


Le Marais may look nowadays like a mix of contemporary art galleries and high fashion boutiques, but hiding behind its austere walls and monumental facades are more than one hundred private palaces and magnificent gardens that during the 17th and 18th centuries were the property of French nobility and aristocracy. Marais remains one of the rare historical districts of Paris that has been totally saved from the transformations under Prefect Baron Haussmann.

During our walk, I will make you discover the fabulous medieval history of this fantastic neighborhood leading up to the nineteenth century. I will show you its old historical passages, its medieval civic architecture remains, its old churches and some recently embellished private palaces now transformed in government buildings.

Itinerary

We will start our visit from the north of the Marais (rue de Bretagne). We will visit "Marché des enfants Rouges", and then skip to the heart of the district going through some gardens and Palaces. We will walk its busiest street, rue Franc Bourgeois, to reach the first Parisian royal square (Place des Vosges), followed by Palace of Sully, the first French Jesuit church, and will end in the Jewish area.

A Recent Review of this tour

Dasha was a wonderful tour guide. She is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge of Paris. She obviously loves what she does. She is also attentive to the safety of her clients. I probably would have walked into traffic a couple times while taking in the sights if Dasha had not warned me. Thanks Dasha.
