In a past life, my favorite Paris walk was along Rue Rambuteau in the Marais district, from the Pompidou Center to the Place des Vosges, past the National Archives in the Hotel de Soubise and through a fascinating slice of Paris history. I re-walked this route during my summer 2015 stay in the city, stopping along the way for a superb falafel sandwich at L’As du Falafel in the Marais.
