The Marais

Take the Rue des Archives and dive into the heart of this historic Parisian district renowned for its intriguing narrow streets, beautiful mansions and old churches. The Marais is home to some of the most beautiful monuments in the capital.

Several museums are situated in this part of the city, including the Musée Picasso and the Musée Carnavalet, a fascinating place dedicated to the history of Paris. Many contemporary art galleries can be found in the pretty streets of the area.

Lovers of exquisite old architecture cannot visit the Marais without lingering in the magnificent Place des Vosges, listed as a Historic Monument, while shoppers can enjoy the many fine retail establishments in the area, many of which are open on Sundays.

Concept-stores like Merci and Fleux delight décor buffs, and fashion fans will appreciate the many designer boutiques such as Factory's, Rosemary's Baby, Freepstar, Maje, Bensimon and Repetto.

Facing the Seine’s most famous islands, the Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Louis, the legendary BHV department store awaits your shopping pleasure.

The Rue de Bretagne

From the Passage St Elisabeth, turn right onto the Rue du Temple and you arrive (200 metres) on the Rue de Bretagne, a picturesque Parisian street typical of the Marais. Here you’ll find a wide variety of shops, including wine merchants, booksellers and food stores, as well as trendy bars like the famous Café Charlot.
Gourmet addresses such as the Lovines pizzeria and L'Aller-retour brasserie are plentiful and there is something for all tastes and budgets. If your sweet tooth needs to be satisfied, head to the chocolatier Jean Paul Hévin for a gorgeous chocolate drink, or to Amorino for an ice cream, Ladurée for a macaron, Pierre Hermé for some patisserie, or Popelini for choux that’s to die for.

After enjoying the popular, joyous and colourful atmosphere of the Marché des Enfants Rouges, the oldest covered market in Paris, there’s nothing better than a stroll through the Rue des Archives and Rue Vieille du Temple, where historic buildings contribute to the architectural richness of the neighbourhood.

The Pompidou Centre and Notre Dame Cathedral

At the Arts et Métiers Metro station, the Rue de Turbigo branches off into the Rue Beaubourg, which marks the border between the district of Les Halles and that of the Marais.

Along this artery in the heart of Paris you will find the Pompidou Centre and its astonishing collections of modern and contemporary art. This building’s daringly different architecture alone is worth the detour.

Continuing south along the Rue Beaubourg you’ll arrive at the city’s administrative hub, the Hôtel de Ville and its facades adorned with statues. Then it’s time to cross the Seine to reach the Ile de la Cité and visit Notre-Dame Cathedral.

The Place de la République

This famous Parisian square is served by 5 Metro lines and several major arteries; the Rue du Faubourg du Temple, which abounds in theatres and cafes and leads to the Canal St Martin; the Boulevard du Temple, which joins the Place de la Bastille; and the Boulevard Saint-Martin, which becomes the Boulevard Poissonnière to take you to the theatre district of the Grands Boulevards and the department stores of the Boulevard Haussmann, including the renowned Galeries Lafayette.

Les Halles and the Louvre Museum

Turn left out of the hotel and the Rue de Turbigo leads you straight to a favourite district of fashion and shopping lovers.

Between the vast Les Halles shopping centre, the ready-to-wear boutiques of the Rue Etienne Marcel, the thrift shops of the Rue Tiquetonne, the designer ateliers of the Passage Grand Cerf and the traditional shops of the pedestrianised and picturesque Rue Montorgueil, you’ll find yourself in retail heaven. When you need a break from your shopping spree, the area also boasts plenty of bars.

The most famous museum in Paris, the Louvre, is only a few steps away, on the other side of Les Halles.

All of Paris

And, of course, all the main places of interest, attractions and monuments of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Elysees, Bastille, Châtelet, Opera, Madeleine, and Concorde, are directly accessible from the Hotel Paris France via various Metro lines and bus services from the République, Temple and Arts et Métiers stations...
