Munching Through the Marais

Gourmet |  History | Secret Passages

  

A former marshland, this fashionable district of Paris gives us a glimpse into two worlds.  Paris of the old world, with its Royal pomp and circumstance, and Paris of the modern world, with its chic boutiques and trendy cafes.  The Marais has been home to the Jewish community, royal elites, and working class revolutionaries over the last four centuries.  We dive into the quartier to explore all the nooks and crannies that centuries of indulgence and hardship have left behind. We’ll explore private mansions and hidden streets, taste delicious artisanal pastries and regional delights, and savor the sights and sounds of one of Paris’ most charming neighborhoods.
