The Haut Marais

The Haut Marais is buzzing. Roughly the area between the Musée National Picasso and the Place de la République, it’s a perfect place to explore for its galleries, cute one-off boutiques and plenty of funky cafés and restaurants for refueling. It’s off the well-trodden tourist path but in proximity to the city center. Travelers with trendy teens who are tired of monumental sight-seeing should certainly not miss a walk through this lovely neighborhood which, with any luck, will resist the gentrification that has, sadly, befallen some streets of the Marais. Here’s what’s not to miss.

Note: Many of the independent boutiques are closed on Sunday. It’s best to visit this area on Saturday or during the week.
