What to expect

Sometimes called "South Marais", this quieter part of the district is rich in historical spots: private mansions, gardens of unrivalled charm, small forgotten passages. Follow the voice of your guide on your smartphone, visit at your own pace, and customize your itinerary as you wish!

The visit starts at the Cité Internationale des Arts. It welcomes more than 300 artists in its workshops and regularly proposes exhibitions. The Hôtel d'Aumont now houses the Administrative Court of Paris, built by the plans of Louis Le Vau, the architect of the Château de Versailles. You’ll notice on the itinerary a magnificent French-style garden, looks almost like a painting! Discover how Paris was first built in the Marais Sud before spreading out around the Louvre and admire the 12th-century Parisian city walls, which are almost 1000 years old! And the old Hôtel Saint-Paul, sadly famous since the "Bal des Ardents" organized by Charles VI. The biggest scandal of the 17th century was unleashed in a private mansion in South Marais and the mansion where the assassination of King Henri IV took place on 14 May 1610.

The commentaries and fun facts trigger automatically as you stroll along the designated itinerary, right where they happened! Your guide also provides audio instructions on the route to follow, no more reading maps! Listen to your guide's commentaries as you stroll through the Marais and enjoy a fun and authentic experience! Visit at your own pace and customize your itinerary as you wish! A short stop at a terrace, a quick stop to shop, a small craving? Resume the visit when you want, right where you stopped. Impossible to get lost. The guide provides clear audio directions to follow in real-time. And if you take a wrong turn, we'll get you right back on track!

Your tour ends at the majestic Place des Vosges, the very first "royal square" where Victor Hugo's house still stands.
