An exquisite and unique Parisian experience
Let’s visit Paris’s hippest district! No matter what you say about it –too expensive, too many fashion victims, too crowded– no complain will ever overshadow the timeless charm and vibe of Le Marais, in Paris. The magical thing with Le Marais is that while being one of the most visited districts of Paris, it also remains the most original, the most international and the one with the largest cultural offer! With the Centre Pompidou and the many other museums that are as rich as they are fascinating (like the Carnavalet or the Picasso museum, to name but a few), but also with the different cultural communities that make it so lively (among others, the gay and Jewish communities), the Marais remains an always surprising place to visit! So, follow us for a gourmet walk between charming alleys and their numerous pastry shops, and let’s meet the best gastronomic actresses and actors in Le Marais!
Nikki and Frederic –your English-speaking local guides– are both passionate about Paris and gastronomy; they have concocted you a personal gourmet walk based on their favorites picks and full of tasty and authentic discoveries to satisfy your sweet tooth. As they are continually in search of new hidden gems, they often have the chance to meet many artisans full of talent and soul, who settled down in Le Marais in the 17th century for some, or just a few months ago for others. The mouth-watering journey they offer will make you meet incredible and talented artisans behind well-known brands or hidden addresses that will be revealed to you along the way; but above all, you will get the occasion to treat yourself with their savory creations, such as a famous bread considered as national treasure since the 1930’s, the world-renowned macarons with foie gras and caviar flavor, some grand-cru chocolate made by the Best Craftsman in France, the generous yet unpronounceable kouign-amann or even some exquisite French pastries with Syrian roots.
And this appetizing exploration will not only delight taste buds; it will also give you some hints of history of the district with many anecdotes, and reveal you the reasons why Le Marais has been attracting all kinds of people for centuries, from aristocracy, to artists, intellectuals, businessmen, tourists and of course Parisians!
