It is located on the intersection of the 11th and 12th arrondissements and close by is... More

Place de la Nation is a huge traffic circle above ground and a major Metro node (4 lines and the RER) below ground. It is in the 12e, in a safe residential, non-tourist area of eastern Paris. And that is why we looked for a hotel here and found the very good Hotel du Printemps nearby. PdeN was a secondary... More

This is a very nice typical french restaurant on a circus (circle). They have great burgers (even have an egg on top which was awesome), as well as some nice drink specials and beers. Enjoyed the casual atmosphere and the friendly staff which is often difficult to find in Paris.

...and a little bit shabby. Sort of a forgotten area. Graffiti'd and slightly sad. But the statuary is grand and absolutely beautiful.

We walked to here from Pere-lachaise on our first day in Paris. That was the last time we visited it 'above ground' until our last day nearly a month later. The centre piece is 'The Triumph of the Republic' by Aimé-Jules Dalou which is very beautiful indeed. Another feature is the two tall columns with statues of Louis IX (builder... More

This is a beautiful landmark in Paris & it's not a total tourist trap. The statue is awesome & I loved the neighbourhood. It's a little ways out of the centre but, get on the subway and see it! The entrance has 2 large columns & the statue is surrounded by streets with pubs, cafes, & a couple great bakeries.... More

This Place is so far east it's almost out of Paris. Very little for the tourist. Has an enormous roundabout in the middle of which is the statue of Marianne celebrating the centenary of the revolution. A very large and intricate figure in bronze but to get up close ishard work through traffic. There is also an attractive pavilion with... More

Really lots of beautiful, deep red roses, my favorite, seen when emerging from the RER upon arrival from the airport to go to our hotel.. Huge "place" with a variety of bars and restaurants around and nearby. Not over-touristed like most of Paris closer to the Isle, Champs Elysees, and Eiffel tower. More of a residents' neighborhood than a tourists'... More
