Our Gift Certificates are valid for 2 people for 1 year

Follow local guides Frederic and Nikki of TheWaysBeyond through the city squares and alleyways of Le Marais as you retrace the history of this iconic Parisian neighborhood. If many today consider Le Marais a must-see on any trip to Paris, it wasn’t always that way. In fact, in the early 20th century, this district was a real no-go zone! Rarely have decadence and poverty been such close neighbors!

As Frederic and Nikki lead you from the Place des Vosges to the Square du Temple, they’ll introduce you to some of the most important figures in the history of Le Marais, such as the well-known Duke of Sully, Madame de Sévigné, and André Malraux.

During your guided walking tour, you’ll also learn about some of the actors in the area forgotten by history.

Weaving your way among hidden memories of the 13th century, thousands of elegant 17th- and 18th-century façades, and even the odd contemporary construction, you’ll be reminded that, just like Rome, Paris wasn’t built in a day!
