It is the Crown jewel of a district that is not lacking in attractions! The Place des Vosges is one of the oldest squares in Paris, and also one of the most beautiful. Visitors stroll under the arches or along the paths of the central garden, taking time to admire the beautiful facades of red brick. Shops, open on Sundays contribute to the liveliness of the spot. The square is the ideal departure point for a walk in the Marais, one of the most charming historic neighbourhoods in the capital, with its rich heritage and special atmosphere. The many mansions of the 17th and 18th centuries have been transformed into internationally renowned museums: Musée Picasso Paris, Musée Carnavalet, the house of Victor Hugo museum ... The Rue des Rosiers, the epicentre of the Parisian Jewish community, is well worth discovering for its atmosphere, its shops and its restaurants. And with countless bars and clubs, the Marais is the biggest gay district in France.
