One of the most vibrant area in Paris

Follow me in the Marais district , you will discover a place where Jews used to live since the Middle Ages. You will see little Synagogue from the outside, the Pletzl, Rue des Rosiers one of the most vibrant streets in what was the Jewish quarter of Paris. Even today, the Star of David continues to shine from Jewish bookshops, restaurants, charcuteries and boulangeries, stunning 17th-century "hotels particuliers". You will taste Yiddish gastronomy. . . This private tour will make an introduction to the history of the French Jews.

A Recent Review of this tour

My tour with Genevieve was fantastic! She is incredibly knowledgable and shared a great deal of interesting information about every place we visited. She knew all the interesting shops, streets, and landmarks to show me and gave me recommendations for the best bakeries and patisseries along with specific things to try in each. She even showed me affordable clothing shops and just whisked me about from place to place in the best fashion. She is great fun and I had a lovely afternoon with her. Thank you!!
