This is hands down the best square in Paris. The building is beautiful and the area is well maintained. It is in the Marais and I believe it is one of the most expensive places in Paris to live!

With its small playground, exquisite buildings, art shops, and at least one busking group somewhere under the arches, a lovely spot for a wander or picnic.

If you don't enjoy this park and surrounding buildings, you need to have a good hard look at yourself! The trees are beautiful, the fountain attractive, the open grass inviting & the bordering architecture magnificent. No wonder the brilliant Victor Hugo leased an apartment there, and that's worth a look too.

Do yourself a favour and have lunch here. It's beautifully maintained, not overcrowded, and in a nice area for boutique shopping.

It's indeed a great place where you can relax, read maybe, but there's nothing extraordinary about it. Another overrated attraction in Paris.

This is a lesser known gem. Take a book and something to drink and spend a morning here. And perhaps something to feed the pigeons. The architecture of the surrounding buildings are also worth a look, so I suggest walking the outskirts of this space too.

It's a beautiful park with fountains, lots of grass and benches! Very beautiful place to spend an afternoon to have a bite to eat and relax. And since it was a really hot day when we went, we sat by the fountain with our feet in to cool off (We saw some other people doing it and there were no... More

One almost feels like this is a hidden gem as never too busy. A delightful promenade around the square with interesting galleries and a few great bars and brasseries for a people watching and some great local cuisine.
