A morning walking tour in the Marais


This morning Pierre took Belinda from Australia on a Walking Tour in the Marais. It was a beautiful sunny day and we took great pleasure in discovering the neighbourhood with its many townhouses built by the nobility and aristocracy of the 16th and 17th centuries.
