Le Marais has already undergone two transformations since its 12th century origins. The first occurred in the 16th century under King Louis XIII; and the second continues today! While most of Paris was demolished under Napoleon, the Marais preserved much of its and Medieval and Renaissance architecture.
The tour gives you a glimpse into all this, and more. You will discover where the French Revolution was born at the Place de la Bastille, and stop at the Colonne de Juillet, a memorial that honors the victims of that fateful July revolution. In contrast, visit the decidedly modern Picasso Museum and Centre Pompidou, the arts complex that Parisians love to hate. End your tour at the Yvon Lambert Gallery, home to some of the world's most cutting-edge art, and stroll down Rue des Rosiers, one of the best preserved streets in all of the Marais.
