What are you going to do?

This walk will take you through a vibrant neighborhood full of variety. The route takes you to the bustling area near Les Halles, which used to be home to the city's food market. In this part of town, life underground is perhaps even busier. You will find the largest Métro station, a huge shopping center, a swimming pool and several movie theaters, all below street level. Henri de Miller's sculpture

L’Écoute ("Listen") is a playful nod to all the hustle and bustle here: A giant stone head with its ear cupped to the ground.

 

The Saint-Eustache church has a grand exterior, and is certainly worth visiting. Inside you will find artworks including a painting by Rubens and a triptych by Keith Haring.

In the busy surroundings of Les Halles you will find many shopping streets with original stores, such as a store that sells every imaginable type of cooking utensil. Rue Montorgueil is a fun street, perfect for a coffee or lunch break. 



Continue through the tiny streets that lead into Le Marais. This charming neighborhood is defined by secluded courtyards, narrow alleyways, and the lovely Place des Vosges. This beautiful square is a great place to rest. On Sundays, many Parisians come to Le Marais to eat falafel, or to sit at a sidewalk café and people-watch. There are many nice stores here, cozy restaurants, and the recently expanded Picasso museum. The neighborhood is also known for its gay nightlife.
