Stopped by here on a sunny afternoon in late June and on a cold, cloudy December morning. What a difference. When the weather is nice, people are everywhere enjoying the warmth and the grass is full of families enjoying a picnic, kids who just got out of classes or lovers strolling hand-in-hand. Last week, the surrounding art galleries were quiet,... More

Place des Vosges is a great place to visit. See the house where Victor Hugo lived. stroll through the park, hear musicians playing, and there are museums to see. Although it is not comparable to Versailles, it is a location worth putting on your itinerary.

On the edge of an interesting area of Paris, this square is worth visiting. When the weather is nice, one can stop and eat outside or read.

Beautiful square four hundred years old. There is a lot of history but there is also a lot of local life. The shops and galeris around are open on Sunday ( an axception in France). The young musicians come visit often this square to give a free concerts under vaulted arcades ( great acoustics). Nice garden in the middle to... More

Well, it's not big, but a pretty place to walk, take pictures, seat down and appreciate. Nice for families with children also, there are areas inside it to play in the sand. And in the corner of one of these apartments which surrounds the place lived Victor Hugo, writer of Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. There's a... More

Strange that we had never heard of this before, as everyone I asked seems to know about it. Its an old square quite near to Bastille and its simply stunning. Beautiful architecture and really quiet. Lots of posh shops and galleries way too expensive to buy anything in. Even the customary Parisian beggars didn't spoil the ambiance. Do visit it.

While this isn't a knock-your-socks-off attraction, the Place des Voges is a lovely, old, very Parisian place. The park itself is relaxing and worthy of a stroll, as is the square with its pricey shops; the Victor Hugo house is apparently a worthy attraction as well. The Place is certainly worth a walk-through, and nearby are many good places for... More
