This narrow street crosses the Marais and provides rare cross-town traffic, including a bus line. On both sides are unique shops, some set back in courtyards. Lots of cafes, restaurants and historic buildings. The best of the Marais.

Love this street, great people watching, many shops. this is one of the main streets that leads into the marais from the west. Streets are closed to cars on sunday so that is the best day, even better when sunny.

A friend and I headed over to Le Marais for an afternoon of shopping/browsing. They do have some wonderful boutiques on Rue des Francs Bourqeois to spend some money in. Our afternoon was cut short due to rain, but I would go back again.

We stayed in an apartment on this street in the Marais. It is a great location. We had a breakfast cafe on the corner, a brasserie for dinner, and shopping for in between! Also close to the bus and metro.

Walk along the streets, enjoy a day. Locals hang out here too. Combine it with Pompodiu, at the end of the street take a rest at Place des Vosges, the small park surrounded with nice historical looking buildings.

After Saint Germain des Pres, this is my 2nd favourite shopping district in Paris. I came across some nice boutiques and yes, I did do some shopping. Anyway I love the fact that this part of town was not consumed by so many tourists -...More

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
