Description

Do you want to combine exploring and shopping in the Marais, one of the capital's trendiest districts? Come and explore a district which still echoes with the memory of France's turbulent history.  This district of Paris is brimming with beautiful privately-owned homes from the Renaissance period with superb façades, as well as exceptional buildings with charming little courtyards. An experienced guide will accompany you. 

You will be given a guided tour of some of the Marais's trendiest and most original boutiques by the owners. Examples of these boutiques include a highly fashionable Parisian concept store, boutiques seling creations which were crafted by hand in Paris, inventions, absinthe collections, hats made from cactus pads ... and a few key addresses for all food-lovers, including the boutique run by one of the leading lights of the "new generation" of patisserie chefs!
