The Place des Vosges is apparently the oldest square in Paris and is in the heart of the original Paris. Le Marais. It is beautifully proportioned and relatively secluded: the tour buses have many other more ‘famous’ places to visit! The sad bit is that...More

Place des Vosges is the home of Vitor Hugo. There is a small charge to visit the museum that was once his home. It is worth the small charge to visit. Once you have done that take some time to walk around the Central Park...More

For all the hoopla of the Marais, the place des Vosges itself remains a bastion of the local community, filled with children and their mothers playing in the afternoon sun, or the arcades resonating with the sound of serious young music students playing their instruments....More

A square park surrounded by gorgeous houses. Porticos on all four sides and very little traffic. Just off the main Rivoli street - the same street as the Louvre museum.

Very nice square a little different to what you see in Paris. Very nice architecture, nice trimmed trees. In one corner is Víctor Hugo museum.

A heavy rain started when I arrived in Place des Vosges and I cannot say how much I appreciate the beautiful arcades surrounding the square! Walking under them and enjoying the place without getting soaking wet is priceless.

Le Marais
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

It looks like originally there was one fountain there -- instead of four. And as far as I can tell ... it didn't have a name.

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

Yes - I have done a lot of homework and have studied TripAdvisor posts AND the RATP website. But I still have a couple of questions and want to double check that I am planning correctly. I want to leave from close to Place des Vosges and end up at CDG terminal 1. Should I take metro Breguet Sabin (to avoid too many changes) to Gare de Nord and then transfer to RER B direction CDG? Do I need to purchase a metro ticket AND then an RER ticket at Gare de Nord (we will not have passes)? What...More

Depending on your relative proximity to either BREGUET-SABIN on the #5 Metro ligne (to GARE du NORD) or SAINT PAUL on the #1 Metro ligne (to Chatelet), the route to CDG 1 via RER 'B' ligne will work out about the same. Either Correspondance from Metro ligne to RER 'B' ligne will probably work out about the same. You will purchase your ticket (8,40€) for the whole journey (Paris to CDG) at whichever Metro station you begin. As to cost, you can easily do the math--4 x 8,40€ or approx....More

We stayed for just three nights at Place des Vosges and I liked the area and did alot of photography nearby...but I will say that after dark the area immediately around the Place clears out and is very very quiet..I was not that fond of walking back from certain directions but action is fairly close. Since I don't know anything about you that might be desirable or not...don't know about other area.

1. No one place would fit that description (being close to all those places), but luckily Paris has an excellent transit system and Metro stations/bus stops are close to everything. 2. All those place (except Versailles and CDG) are in Zone 1. Yes, an ND would make the most sense, especially so if using it from/CDG. 3. The museum pass does the same as buying individual tickets in advance in terms of special lines/entrances. ET is not a part and you would need timed tickets or you will spend...More
