The Marais, Secret Places & Seductive Stories

The Marais, Secret Places & Seductive Stories

Narrow streets, secret gardens, pretty squares and historic mansions, the Marais is overflowing in charm. Once the vegetable garden of Paris, the area experienced a golden age from the mid 1500s to late 1600s when it became the aristocratic heart of the city…. the “heart” in many ways!

The nobles brought with them fervent love stories, duels and much more which involved galant princes, queens and a certain emperor. As we weave our way through the more tranquil streets and hidden places of the area, we’ll explore its history through these interesting stories and enchanting sites that will make you dream of another era. We’ll take a break midway to rest and have a coffee or treat to soak up the ambiance and give you more tips for your trip.
