Right in the geographic centre of Paris, le Marais, is the ideal home base from which to explore Paris on foot.
This prime central location is buzzing with energy. This part of the historic Marais district is full of lively and charming street life.
Most of Paris' sights and points of interest are within a few blocks : the river Seine, Nôtre Dame cathedral, Hotel de Ville, the Louvre museum, the beautiful Place des Vosges, the Pompidou Centre, and the charming Ile St-Louis island on the Seine, St-Germain is just across the Seine.
Here are some photos that I took riding around a 10 block radius from the the apartments to give you a feel for the area.
