Description

Do you want to combine exploring and shopping in the Marais, one of the capital's trendiest districts? As you will discover, France's turbulent history has left its mark on the Marais's history and architecture. 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 selling 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!
