Nothing really to see here except a statue. Not too far from Bastille, but can't say it was worth the walk to and from

A peaceful spot in the heart of the city. Great place to stop for lunch or have a coffee and watch the world go by. Plenty of interesting art and little shops.

This is really nice place to go for a walk and enjoy the views... Sourrounding by impressive buildings like a shield from the noises from the city. We spend there pretty good time. Took a lunch in one of traditional caffes. Just lovely place.

It was very pleasant weather when we walked here, sunny with a temperature of around 23 degrees Celsius. This place was very crowded, as it was a Saturday. It is good that there are so many benches for people to sit and rest.

A reflection of the expectations of true Parisian experience. The square is fantastic for kids (play area with gelati close by), mums and dads (art galleries and restaurants) and some magnificent buildings (Hotel Sully, Maison de Victor Hugo etc) - and people watching..

Places des Vosges is a large quadrangle building surrounding a square. Victor Hugo lived there. Today, the ground levels are art shops, boutiques, and restaurants. The combination is a very intriguing area that is well worth seeing. It is extremely charming and relaxing, and somewhat different (quieter and more removed) from the surrounding areas. By the way, look for the... More

we stumbled upon this gem as our hotel was not far. What a beautiful attraction. The symmetry of this square and the beautiful surrounding buildings is a sight to behold. We were amazed that something so stunning could be tucked away from the throngs of tourists. We had breakfast here in one of the traditional cafes that dot the archways... More

This is a lovely park, with a huge metal fencr around the outside. The terraced houses surround the park with quite a few eateries. There are also galleries under the arches as well.
