Currently the realm of high-end jewelry stores where I come to gaze in the windows at the artistry. Fancy hotel here that won't let you in the door. It's better than it used to be when it was a car park, but it is a cold sterile stone space, and a place of luxury.

Place Vendome is another public square and only a five-minute walk from the largest and most famous square - the Place de la Concorde.

The enormous Vendome column stands proudly at the centre of the square.

Surrounding the square are high-end and exclusive jewellery shops and also some top hotels like the Ritz and Vendome.

Bad care of the hotel lobby, actually, horrible, looks like abandones. COVID killed it…
We went into our “suite”. Filthy, hairballs all over the sofa; dust, breadcrumbs.
Extra bad taken care of. The bed linens torn, the sofa broken; the lamp shields broken.
A trully “chambre des bonnes “.
Embarassing for Westin Place Vêndome.
Not enough staff at the horrible front desk.
If you keep like this, you will be another victim of COVID.
So sorry for you and not delivering to your customers.

Place Vendome is one of the Royal squares now associated with Napoleon and luxury. The monument to the Sun king was demolished during the revolution. Napoleon installed a column instead, cast from captured Austrian and Russian cannons captured after the victory at Austerlitz. The style of the column, as well as the triumphal arch, is borrowed from the ancient Romans. A statue of Napoleon was placed on top of the column. Henry IV replaced Napoleon in 1814. After Napoleon III came to power, Napoleon was again at the top of the column. The second time he flew out of there during the Paris Commune on the initiative of the artist Courbet. After the defeat of the Commune, Courbet emigrated to Switzerland, and the Thiers government seized his property to pay for Napoleon's third ascent to the top of the column. Now in the image of Caesar. It looks comical, but Parisians don't seem to think so. Chopin died at number 12, Chekhov stayed at the hotel Vendome, and the largest number of celebrities stayed at the Ritz, one of the most expensive hotels in Paris. Expensive jewelry stores and boutiques are the main attraction for the powerful in addition to the Ritz. Well, we are not rich pass by...

A very elegant plaza that has lots of brands stores. A beautiful tall column made of melted canons decorates the middle.

Place Vendome is a rather nice public square with many shops in the general area. We wandered around for a while enjoying the views. In the centre of the square there is a tall column which was erected by Napoleon to commemorate the battle of Austerlitz. It seems to dominate the square but it is quite an interesting column.

This is an elegant and upscale shopping area with a gorgeous large square. During Christmas it sparkles even more with the many beautiful Christmas trees. Definitely worth a detour.
