Rue Saint Paul is my little secret spot hidden in the heart of Marais full of vintage passageways, treasures and memories. This little street is often overlooked by travelers who usually are heading to the more bustling areas in Marais. Check the area if you’re looking for a quiet stroll in a Sunday afternoon while doing lèche-vitrine on the adorable little vintage shops.
The Flea Market (Brocante) in Village Saint Paul is held every Sunday. Village Saint Paul is an enclosed picture-perfect, cobbled street village accessible only through its arched passageways. Antique dealers and collectors from all over the world keep this secret as one of the best spots in Paris for finding treasures.
