You’ll have one of the best local historians at your fingertips as you discover an astounding hidden history unbeknownst to most.

Your unparalleled historical experience begins at King Philippe Auguste’s city wall. This is the wall that created many of the geographical limits of Paris in the 12th century, just one of the barriers that the Jewish population had to overcome to create their lively and critical community in Paris. After an in-depth overview of this time in Jewish history, you’ll take a journey through the Marais, also called Pletzl meaning little place. This is the known as the center of Jewish Paris.

The Marias is made up of buzzing streets lined with bright cafes, specialty food shops and Kosher restaurants. Take some time to chat with local shop owners while you experience the smells and sights of mouthwatering bakeries and quaint bookstores.

Next, you’ll visit the Memorial of the Shoah – an important location that shows the complex history of the Jewish population in Paris. Learn about the somber events of the Holocaust and how that’s shaped the community today. End the day with a peaceful walk through the Jewish Quarter as you appreciate the strong cultural presence of the Jewish community in Paris.
