Not Included: Entrance fees to sites you choose to visit.

Tour Marais, one of the most sophisticated neighborhoods in Paris, has an intriguing history, from swampland to royal playground. The area fell into disrepair after the French Revolution, and lay dormant until its revival as a hub for arts and culture in the 1960s. 
Today, the Marais is a great place to see well-preserved architecture from Medieval and Renaissance times, as well as its flamboyant private residences, known as hôtels. But beyond its historical character, here you’ll also find the latest trends in art and fashion. Your tour will also include a visit to the Centre Pompidou, whose ultra-modern style is both loved and hated by Parisians, much like the Eiffel Tower was in its day.

Your private guided tour of Marais will include such sites as Church St. Paul, Place des Vosges (Victor Hugo’s home, Hotel de Sully), Hotel Salé (Picasso Museum), Hotel Carnavalet (Museum of Parisian history), Hotel de Soubise (French Archives), and much more. You will also saunter down Rue des Rosiers, which is one of the most well-known streets in the Marais district.
