After going on a guided tour of Le Marais in Paris, you’ll know that it’s not just a working-class neighborhood packed with good Jewish food: it used to be a marsh that was turned into the city’s aristocratic epicenter, which then became the home to King Charles V in the 14th Century. It’s information like this that makes heritage-history tours in France so beneficial: they are mind-opening and enriching.
