Full description

Spend some time exploring the scenic views of Le Marais, Paris, as your guide tells you the history of the area on this walking tour. Admire the district which was once the Jewish Quarter, and visit the Stravinsky Fountain, the Centre Pompidou, the Street of Rosebushes, and more.

 

Begin at the Stravinksy Fountain (currently under renovation until 2023), with abstract and outlandish sculptures that move and spray water. Marvel at the colorful display and capture photos of the whimsical fountain.

 

Next, explore the Centre Pompidou, the street Sainte-Croix-de-la-Bretonnerie, and the Cloister of Billettes. Your guide will teach you the history and tell you about the LGBTQ+ community of the area.

 

Spend some time learning about the Church of Our Lady of the White Friars, built-in 1258 by Saint Louis. Walk to the Impasse des Crossbowmen, the Street of Rosebushes, the Library of the City of Paris, The Place des Vosges, and more.

 

Your tour will end at Le Village Saint-Paul, a treasure trove of antiques, art galleries, and artisan boutiques. Leave your guide here to admire the area and stroll through the shops and attractions nearby.
