"Marais district" is an area in Paris which is often reffered to as the "SOHO." The Marais is  known for its numerous art galleries and design shops.  Le Marais is the closest you will get to the feel of medieval Paris and has more pre-revolutionary buildings and streets left intact than any other area in Paris. It's very similar in feel to the West Village in Manhattan, with different architecture of course, but the small crooked medieval lanes are alive with bars, restaurants, hotels, high and low fashion boutiques, trendy shops, hip designers, old fashioned bread shops, jewelry, wine shops, fashionable art galleries and museums all crammed into one small area. We have curated a list of must see places in Le Marais.
