Situated on the right bank of the River Seine, the 3rd is the smallest in area after the 2nd arrondissement. The arrondissement contains the northern, quieter part of the medieval district of Le Marais (while the 4th arrondissement contains Le Marais' more lively southern part, notably including the gay district of Paris). The oldest surviving private house of Paris, built in 1407, is to be found in the 3rd arrondissement, along the rue de Montmorency.

This is a lovely and trendy district with a lot of LGBT shops, galleries and bars around. The place looks especially nice after dark, with a great vibe and locals coming to unwind.

Located in the Marais area is the 3rd Arrondissement and is one of the smallest districts in Paris. This district is fairly quiet and has a certain charm and is home to Paris's oldest surviving house, built in 1407.

I've stayed in this area a couple of times and would love to do it again. Lots of cool cafes and good restaurants. Lots of lovely old buildings and quiet streets. Some museums. My favorite part of the Marais.
