This is a lovely and trendy district with a lot of LGBT shops, galleries and bars around. The place looks especially nice after dark, with a great vibe and locals coming to unwind.

Located in the Marais area is the 3rd Arrondissement and is one of the smallest districts in Paris. This district is fairly quiet and has a certain charm and is home to Paris's oldest surviving house, built in 1407.

I've stayed in this area a couple of times and would love to do it again. Lots of cool cafes and good restaurants. Lots of lovely old buildings and quiet streets. Some museums. My favorite part of the Marais.

We stayed in a lovely apartment on Saint Martin. It was really centrally located to anywhere we wanted to go (and we only used the Metro twice). The area has a great deal of history (I will review the wonderful Musee) mixed with modern buildings....More
