Your trip through the heart of the historic Marais will begin at the Hotel de Ville and the esplanade which was the site of public executions back in the days. Then it’ll be time to delve further into the Marais to the see original wood-framed domestic medieval architecture, a truly rare find in Paris!
After surveying striking remnants of medieval ramparts and cobblestone alleys, you’ll be led into a secret locals-only series of courtyards, which is one of the most charming and overlooked parts of the Marais. Peaceful French countryside village atmosphere – and remarkable shopping opportunities - guaranteed. A walk inside a spectacular nearby church will reveal legends and curiosities you have to see to believe!
You’ll then go arrive at the elegant Place des Vosges, the second oldest square in Paris and home to many historic characters through the ages such as writer Victor Hugo, Colette and dancer Isadora Duncan. Not less than 36 private mansions were originally built around this royal square! Today, VIPs only can afford this royal address, and you might spot a celebrity or two during the tour.
Your guide will then take you along the heart of the historical Jewish quarter, the charmingly medieval Rue des Rosiers. WWII is long over, and you’ll experience today’s bustling and fashionable Marais artery! Next up is the Marais’ most gorgeous secluded garden that most Parisians don’t even know about, perfect for picture perfect souvenirs and a snack after your tour!
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
