“Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.”
Le Marais is French for marshlands, and this area covers most of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. This historically Jewish neighborhood offers kosher delis and falafel restaurants along rue des Rosiers. You might spot rocker Lenny Kravitz at L'As du Fallafel. While most of Paris shuts down on Sundays, the Marais generally closes on Saturdays for the Jewish Sabbath. On Sundays, hit Marais vintage shops, clustered near metro Saint-Paul. The Marais is also famous as the gayest spot in "Gay Paree," with many gay and lesbian clubs and bars.
