We will meet at Le Marais in my boutique where I will give you a brief introduction of the area over coffee and croissant. Then we will explore hip boutiques, galleries, specialty coffee shops and new concepts. During these two hours we will visit lots of must see places in the area and capture the bohemian, artistic spirit of the arrondissement. I will show you all the speak easy shops, walk with you through the most beautiful streets and visit locations few people know. Le Marais is a perfect melting pot of cultures and visual stimulation of architecture, art, fashion and design. Coming from a family of art gallerists and artists I appreciate good taste and great fashion. I invite you to experience the area in the most authentic way.
