A Perfect Day in the Marais

Bonjour Parismarais readers,

The weather is finally warming up, bringing us spring and longer sunny days, encouraging us to spend more time outside. To celebrate, here is an example of a jam-packed day bursting with just a few of the many delights to discover in the Marais if you are full of energy you want to burn off. You might of course want to take your sojourn a bit slower and more relaxed, or even split your activities over two days. Enjoy your perfect day (or two, or three, or four) in the Marais !

Pascal Fonquernie,
Editor of PARISMARAIS.COM

Marianne’s book is filled with gorgeous images of the Marais, and Rosemary’s tome is brimming with those of angels to be found all over Paris. Both make a perfect and unique gift !
