Marais and Haut-Marais | 75003 and 75004
This street in the Marais is one of my favorite shopping areas in Paris. While there is a lot of glamour in the Avenue Montaigne or the Faubourg Saint Honoré, it is in the Marais that I feel more at ease and the retail scene is more my style, with some indie shops, great bookshops, French brands and a hip feel. The good news is that many of the shops in the Marais are open on Sundays, when most of Paris is shut down. It can take a good part of your morning or afternoon to walk from Rue de Rivoli, where Vieille du Temple starts all the way to the Haut Marais, where it meets Rue de Bretagne, Rue de Turenne and the Filles du Calvaire. Best window shopping in town, rest assured.
