The Marais

Highly recommended
The Place des Vosges, rue des Francs-Bourgeois, and three mansions in particular, the Hôtel de Soubise, Hôtel Salé and Hôtel de Rohan, take visitors back to the 17C and 18C, the time of the absolute monarchy and the Enlightenment. However, the old streets, tiny squares and aristocratic mansions here are now occupied by designer boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and markets, transforming the Marais into a lively and trendy district.
