Rue de Temple, Upper Marais, Paris, 75003, France

At only 289 acres, the largely residential Third Arrondissement is the second smallest district in Paris. The neighborhood contains the northern section of Le Marais (the Marsh) district, established in 1240, as well as the city’s burgeoning Chinatown. Notable landmarks include the Musée Picasso, which features more than 3,000 original works by the eponymous artist, and the Musée Carnavalet, a history museum housing such artifacts as Napoleon’s ceremonial armor, Louis XVI’s shaving kit, and Marcel Proust’s brass bed. The oldest surviving private house in the city, built in 1407, is also located here on the Rue de Montmorency.
