Info about Marais, Paris
The Marais has only become a trendy neighborhood in recent years. Known for its typical Parisian boutiques, nightspots, and old bistros the area is also one of the culturally and historically richest of the city. Among other important addresses is the Carnevalet museum, open from Tuesday until Sunday 10am until 6pm and free of charge. In this museum you'll be able to experience the evolution of the city through paintings, sculptures, and furnishings. Beware of anyone who considers it of less importance than the much larger Louvre and Orsay. It is definitely worth the visit. You'll also find the Picasso museum in the Marais that also includes several paintings by Modigliani. It's open everyday except Tuesday from 9:30am until 5:30pm. Entrance is 5.50 except on the first Sunday of every month when it, along with many other museums of Paris, is free. Also in the Marais on the other side of the rue de Rivoli are some of the oldest and best preserved buildings in the city. A vacation in a Marais B&B is a unique experience and allows visitors to experience the city as Parisians do.
