    VIBE

    The medieval streets of Paris’s ancient Jewish Quarter (known as Le Marais) have taken a turn for the trendy, as quaint kosher delis and bakeries have been replaced by chic designer boutiques, contemporary galleries, and hot cafés and bistros. Rue Vieille du Temple is a fashionista-gourmand’s paradise. Pop into nifty shops like Le Palais des Thés (tea emporium), Gerbe (gorgeous stockings), Jamin Puech (whimsical handbags), and Librairie des Archives (beautiful coffee table books). Afterwards, refuel and review your purchases at café hangouts like Les Philosophes or L'Etoile Manquante, or at bookshop-cum-wine bar La Belle Hortense.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Our favorite mix of activities: café sampling and boutique hopping. We like to kick things off with a sophisticated brunch before trawling the quirky shops.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    This is one of the few places in the city where shops are allowed to open on Sundays.
