About The Marais district
Taking a few steps down the loud and very busy Rue de Rivoli is all it takes to find yourself in a new dimension and a new neighborhood: the Marais.
Here times seems to stop, and when going through the medieval streets you can still hear the echoes from the times of the Templars.
When looking at the 16th century houses and residences, it’s easy to imagine yourself as a French aristocrat arriving into the courtyard in a carriage… And for a short moment it will seem like a door is about to open, and Madame de Sévigné is about to walk out to welcome you.”
With each street turning, I will show you many features of Parisian life, past and present and, little by little, you will begin to gain insights into the French, past and present.
You will learn why the Marais may be the best starting point for anyone who wants to grasp some fundamentals in Parisian architecture. You will learn Baron Haussmann’s rôle in the making of Paris the way it is today; what he did and perhaps, more importantly in this context, what he didn’t do! You will never see Paris the same way again but through different eyes and with greater awareness.
Small parks, statues, houses, stairwells, courtyards and even timber-framed buildings all add to the uniqueness of this event. Here will be an anecdote to put it all in context. They may make you laugh or smile, but you will certainly never be bored! You will not linger on any place for very long but just enough to allow you to add each gem to the whole picture through this travel in time.
I am a foodie and have been living in Paris for 13 years now. I will be happy to show you my favourite places where we will savour most delicious food.
