The northern part of the historic Marais, the third is an eclectic neighborhood with plenty to see and do. The wholesale shopping around Place de la Republique quickly turns more quaint and small-neighborhood as you head south. “Temple” is a trendy corner of Paris at the moment with lots of bars, good-value restaurants and art galleries at every turn. The streets are filled with locals, foreign and international, out to have a good time. The heart of the Marais is between rue de Turenne and rue des Archives, where you will find wonderful museums and galleries in old hôtel particuliers, a number of Paris’ renown hidden parks and gardens, restaurants, cafés, and boutique shopping. Head east to the border of the 3rd and 11th arrondissements to find more up-and-coming restaurants and hipster hangouts.
