It is a nice square surrounded by beautiful symmetrical architecture, but it is quite small compared to other parks so it can be crowded with people just laying there on the grass. It is quite a beauty but nothing grand or extraordinary.

We always return to this gem in the Marais when in Paris. Built in 1605 it was the first design for a square in Paris and its beautiful proportions and arched brick arcades still serve as a wonderful window shopping experience. Restaurant Ma Bourgogne has...More

Found this place on our final morning in Paris. A good place to take a quiet stroll during rush hour, especially. Quiet and secluded with lots of opportunities for people watching.

This lovely square at the end of the walking tour of the Marais neighborhood was one of the best we found for people watching. Lots of benches in the shade for tourists and lots of people in the center soaking up the sun and enjoying...More

I took an early morning walk through Le Marais and ended up at Place des Vosges. The city was just waking up so the park was empty. A beautiful and understated place.

Great place for a little picnic. Lots of children and families, but it's a good mix and not too late, nonetheless.

Place des Vosges may not show up on the list of best places to see in Paris, but it is my personal favorite. I recommend Carrette's cafe to enjoy a Kir, perhaps a pastry and a stroll though the park. The Marais is just delightful.

The place is a pretty garden which occupies the square space in a courtyard of the palace. Great design to allow light, air and a pretty green space.

As the title says, there are lots of galleries etc here but for me just admire the architectural beauty and imagine how this place must have been. You, a bench and your eyes. Plenty of nice coffee and food places nearby

The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets
that beg to be explored. It bursts with small
boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional
restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of

When in France you generally have the marriage ceremony at the local Mairie (town hall) then go to a park for pictures. I am sure it can be done, if you find the right person or priest. But it will take a lot of... More
