Marais, France - Paris, Home of Pompidou

The word “marais” is French for “swamp,” exactly what this famous area of Paris used to be. Today luxurious seventeenth-century mansions or “hôtels particuliers” occupy its streets. Many of them have been converted into museums such as the Musée Carnavalet, which presents the history of Paris; the Musée Picasso, which houses the largest collection of Picasso's in the world; and the Musée Cognacq-Jay, which showcases an exquisite collection of eighteenth-century art and furniture. The district’s famous street, Rue des Rosiers, in the heart of the Jewish area, is teeming with delis, restaurants, and bakeries. Trendy shops and cafés line adjacent streets. The Place des Vosges, where Victor Hugo once lived, is a beautiful place to relax and people watch.

Outside the Marais, the rest of Paris awaits. Whether it’s a leisurely walk along the Seine, a visit to one of the countless museums, or an unforgettable meal in a cozy neighborhood restaurant, you’ll never find a shortage of things to do in this marvelous city. Even lingering in one of the meticulously kept gardens or sidewalk cafés can be a daylong activity. Everything is conveniently located, just a short walk from any Metro station, one of the safest and most efficient subway systems in the world.

If plans include travel outside Paris, the RER (regional train) can transport you quickly and economically. Day trips to the Versailles Palace, Disneyland Paris, Monet’s home in Giverny, and the Chartres cathedral are easily accomplished and well worth the trip.
