We got to take a tour of this stunning building today and couldn't believe it's a town hall! The library and some of the large halls in particular are jaw dropping.

Hotel de Ville has a direct metro line (Hotel de ville ligne 1) so very accesible and close to the river for a nice walk around Paris and the quais (the river border). it holds from time to time very good expositions mostly contemporary.

Well we saw this building a lot. Only because we had to walk past it on route somewhere. That said, when we stopped and looked at the details, this building was a true gem and impressive, besides, it will be on route to somewhere.

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
