The Marais district, with its labyrinth of narrow streets lined by noble, ancient townhouses, is delightful to wander around, and shop on the Rue de Rosiers.
Funky boutiques such as L'Eclaireurs abound in the city's old Jewish quarter.
Starting near Centre Georges Pompidou (rue Rambuteau), the road is considered trendy, with numerous fashion boutiques. Rue des Francs-Bourgeois is one of the few streets which largely ignores France's strong tradition of Sunday closure, even within Paris. As such, it is a popular location for weekend brunches and walks.
