Neighborhood Shopping
The city’s most en vogue art galleries make their home in the most significant and historic architectural buildings of Le Marais, once the city’s Jewish quarter. In this district, dine at trendy restaurants, shop at the hippest fashion houses, and admire contemporary art in one of the museums. Many people from the Chinese community around the northern portion of the district sell handmade leather products and jewelry from their personal workshops. You'll find many LGBT-friendly cafes, nightclubs, cabarets, and shops in the southwestern portion.

  • It is a quiet neighborhood, very "posh" so many things to see, excellent restaurants and bars. Antique streets, junk shops, creative artisans in fantasy jewelry made with poor materials. It's a must see

  • Currently having the chance to live in this fabulous area I recommend you you will not be disappointed. Neighborhood consisting mainly of small pedestrian streets adorned with all sides of cafes, restaurants, but also store or Delicatessens. In short a pleasure to live in this fabulous holiday village in the heart of Paris.

  • We stayed in the rue Turbigo near the praça da Republica. So we were able to walk for almost everything. It's pretty cool. I just didn't like the Marche Enfants Rouge (weak).

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
