Let's discover with me the gems of the Marais !
A complete circuit from the Palace of the Tournelles, residence of the Kings of France and the Great Wall of the Middle-Age.
You will discover the magnificent place des Vosges, the centre of Paris at XVII century (fully refurbished by André Malraux) with its 200 typical mansions, the Champs Elysees and the most famous churches: the magnificent Jesuit church and the chapel of the Visitandines. This tour will help you revive the cultural and social lives of prestigious academies under King Louis XIV where they used to meet.
You will take the time to enter and admire a few of their ceilings with beams and joists painted and the gardens of famous characters: the Duke of Sully, Madame de Sévigné, President Lamoignon..as well as several hidden gardens and a convent.
At the corner of the streets, away from the noisy city, you will experience an unexpected Paris: pedestrian places will surprise you such as flea markets of the vintage places (St Paul), the imposing Tower of Montgomery, the peaceful Ste Catherine place and its restaurant of magicians.
The charms of the Jewish quarter will also seduce you with its famous pastries and its former restaurant Goldenberg. I will also present you the former industrial activity with its famous gold and silver foundry with its 30 m tall fireplace! (you can visit it)
A must-see area you cannot miss !
See you soon !
