Part of the Marais is the old Jewish Quarter - which is still the Jewish Quarter. Wander about and absorb the character and history of the area and visit the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust Memorial. Enjoy the area food. Have some falafel and shawarma....More

This museum contains an excellent history of Judaism. It is centrally located in the Marais and easily found when walking around the area. The exhibits are well displayed and I learned a great deal during my visit.

Best falafel stands in Paris, maybe the world. Lots of markers noting this historic Jewish neighborhood, now recycled as a center of tourism and high-end shopping.

While walking the Marais district, my brother and I found we were in Paris’ Jewish sector. Other than signage on some Jewish stores, it was simply a pleasant area. We were not into falafel and diid not dine kosher style, though they had many diners....More
