Paris is a beautiful city at any time of the day but there is something magical about wandering the pretty streets and boulevards as the sun is setting and the lights are coming on, illuminating shop fronts and the city’s iconic sites. Le Marais is one of our favourite areas to explore at dusk, the beautiful stores, bars and laneways are perfect for wandering, people watching and stopping for an early evening drink.

Exploring the bars and cafes in the early evening in Le Marais is one of our favourite pastimes.

It looks amazing!
I am going next year. Any places I should be sure to see?
There are so many! We spent a full day walking all of the way up the right bank of the Seine and then over to the left bank and we saw so much. The Eiffel Tower, Jardin de Luxembourg, Le Marais (for shopping!), the Champs Élysées, Notre Dame. If you get a chance to take a day trip out of Paris head to Monet’s Garden or Versailles- both so beautiful and easy trips. Enjoy!
My favorite city! We stayed in an apartment just above one of those stores in Le Marais. Thanks for awakening some lovely memories!
