“expensive and not worth all the hype”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

I liked the cobble stone streets and the small stores and bistros all around, very quaint, however, this area was supposed to be a gem in shopping, whereas it seemed more like an overpriced overrated tourist attraction.

“Great part of Paris.”
Reviewed 2 May 2012

This a very interesting part of Paris and the Place de Voges is a beautiful park in the midlle of it. If you walk around the entire square you will find artists at work, gallerys, shops and very good cafes. It is a lovely way to spend a morning. The shopping in the area adjacent to the square in all the small streets is fantastic. The metro and the bus service is very quick.

“Nice area”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

I enjoy walking around Le Marais. The cultural mix, the food, the variety of places to visit, and the easiness of access make it a worth visit.

“Worth a walk around”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Get out on foot and walk around, this is more of an absorbing-the-atmosphere thing than specific things to look at.
