We want to take you through Le Marais district for a day with our weekly picks.

It is a very busy but very typical area in center Paris where Parisians like to hang out during the weekends. You always get surprised by a peaceful little park, secret eclectic spots, a brand new venue or a pop-up event while walking in these tiny streets.

Wherever you’re from, this Parisian but cross-cultural neighbourhood will suit you well.

Here’s your artsty/trendy/discovery day in Le Marais in ten steps (Check the map below):

1. The Picasso Museum (A). A can’t-miss recently reopened gem in Paris. The largest Picasso works exhibition in the world. (Book now to get a ticket)

2. Get lost in the streets and discover some great local art galleries. If it is photography month (in November), the satellite galleries host unique photographs exhibitions. Here’s where.

3. Have lunch at L’Estaminet des Enfants Rouges (B), a farmhouse hidden in a the oldest food market in Paris.
>Alternative lunch if the restaurants in the market are at full capacity (it is worth waiting): La Paulette or Café Charlot, on the opposite side of rue de Bretagne, on the same block. One is a very French restaurant, the other a very trendy one.

4. Walk by the Carreau du Temple (C – picture). The recently reopened covered market usually hosting exhibitions and trendy attic sales.

5. Another exhibition at freshly reopened Musée Cognacq-Jay (D).

6. Take a break at the Swedish Institute Café (E).

7. Enjoy the quiet and beautiful parks: Among them, Place des Vosges (F), Square George Cain (facing the Swedish Institute) and the Jardins des Archives Nationales. Check the map below.

8. Shop at Merci concept-store (G) for the latest fashion, home decor and cosmetic trends in a unique residence. Enjoy a warm coffee break there in one of the two cafes.

Hope you enjoy your tour and give us your feedback on how we could improve.
