The popularity of the Marais began to wane towards the end of the 17th century when Louis XIV moved his court to Versailles, and after the Revolution, the once-elegant hôtels deteriorated into working-class tenements. Today, the Marais (which covers the 3rd and 4th arrondissements) is trendy again, and loved by visitors and residents alike. It’s a great area for window-shopping at trendy boutiques, up-and-coming galleries, and eclectic stores, and it’s one of the few neighborhoods where shops are open on Sundays. It’s long been a center for Paris’s Jewish community and you’ll find Jewish shops.
