Full description
Le Marais retains plenty of old world charm with its narrow, winding streets, hidden courtyards and beautiful medieval and Renaissance mansions. Dynamic and modern, yet steeped in history and overflowing with charm, the Marais is the perfect place to explore as a family, accompanied by a passionate local guide

See the the Hotel de Sens, a magnificent palace built in 1500 - children will love searching for the cannonball still lodged in the wall. You’ll see the magnificent Place des Vosges, one of the most beautiful squares in the city and a favorite picnic spot in summer. Hear stories of kings jousting and see if you can tell the difference between the real and fake facades.

Discover cool boutiques on the rue des Francs Bourgeois and stroll by the café terraces, perfect for sitting and watching the world go by. You’ll visit the traditional Jewish quarter, where you can taste the best falafel in the city. Then check out some of the newest and best pastry shops in the city. 

Along the way, younger visitors can keep their eyes open for all kinds of street art, from painted murals to decorated street signs. Walk past the iconic Centre Pompidou, so scandalous when it was first built, now loved by locals and visitors alike. See the fairytale architecture of Paris’ City Hall, and end your tour with a stroll by the riverside.

Specially designed materials for children will be provided to ensure that younger members of the family are able to participate every step of the way. Your guide will be fully licensed and specialized in leading tours for all ages.
