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.

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
