The Rick Steves guide gives a walking itenirary through the Marais neighborhood and it is truly a unique part of Paris. The tour take you to the Place de Voges and the Pompidou Center, both worth seeing, if only for the people watching.

The Marais is an area of Paris so you could spend as few as two days or up to a week. Walk over to the Ile St. Louis for a different feel.
