We travel to Paris on a regular basis. We love staying in the Marais. It has a great location in the city. The area has a great vibe and I think that it isnt as overrun with tourists as some areas.

We stayed for 2 weeks in the 3rd, and it was one of the best locations for our family. There is a TON of incredible food, as well as Les Enfants Rouge market with incredible groceries and meals. We hardly wanted to leave!
