Rue Mouffetard Lively Market Street in Paris. Marais Walking Tour. The Marais is one of Paris’ oldest and most visually stunning quarters.

Marais Walking Tour

First developed in the 12th century, the neighborhood, whose name means "swamp" in French and once was one, went from being a royal favorite under Henri IV and Louis XIII, to falling into ruin after the French Revolution of 1789. Since its revival in the 1960s, it has shone as a center of Parisian artistic and cultural life. It has also significantly gentrified, evolving from a mostly working-class and immigrant neighborhood to one of the most affluent and prestigious areas in the city. This, of course, is not to the liking of all, but whatever your stance, it's undoubtedly made it a stunning place to walk around, eat, drink, and lounge. The Marais is one of the only areas that preserves the narrow streets and architectural styles of Medieval and Renaissance-era Paris.

10 Insanely Delicious Things You Shouldn’t Miss in Paris

Here’s my list of Ten Great Things To Eat in Paris, things I think you shouldn’t miss! 1. Dinner at Les Papilles This is one of my favorite restaurants, serving delicious well-presented food, at very reasonable prices. Doubling as a wine bar, you pick a wine from the rack on the wall (ask for help, the staff will guide you if necessary) then enjoy your dinner. 2. If you want to see Parisians eating something messy on the street, with far more flair that I can muster, head over to the rue de Rosiers in the Marais.

Lately I’ve been more inclined to head over to Maoz on the Left Bank, which lacks the name recognition, but the falafel is really great and the help-yourself condiment bar means you can pile on the pickled vegetables and hot sauce as much as you’d like.

Restaurant A Paris - Le guide des bons restaurants parisiens. A Walk along the Paris inner city Railway, abandoned since 1934. I spent my Saturday afternoon, avoiding the Parisian summer crowds and tiptoeing along the train tracks of the “Little Belt” railroad (La Petite Ceinture), a surviving relic of a bygone era, closed since 1934; open for pleasant summer strolls if you look hard enough for a way in … Built in 1862, the Petite Ceinture is a great way to see Paris from a different perspective as the railroad’s bridges peep over the boulevards every few hundred yards.

A Walk along the Paris inner city Railway, abandoned since 1934

The tracks run along the backs of artist ateliers which you can’t see from the street. The railroad was a circular route (hence “the little belt”), connecting the main train stations of Paris within the old fortified city walls. This is one of the old stations, Gare de Charonne, which has since been converted into a café and rock’n’roll music venue, La Flèche d’Or. Of course when the métro was built, it was to be the end of the Petite Ceinture.
