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 visit a very little synagogue, 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.

For 30 years now, the city council and the government have improved the district and progressively restored most of the beautiful private mansions and aristocratic palaces that had been left abandoned for years.

A Recent Review of this tour

We all absolutely loved our walk with Genevieve. She is a gorgeous warm and engaging person with so much local all knowledge. We had booked the Marais but she also took us to Notre Dame, The Latin quarter le grand épicerie and recommended so many great eateries that it is lucky we clocked up 18kms walking that day. Mercie à toi Geneviève. C'était le pied !!
