“Treasure Park & Spectacular Architecture”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Perfect any season. So much to appreciate. Walking around outside of the park you marvel at living in the surrounding buildings, walking under the archways & wondering what's its like to wake up to this quiet elegant beauty everyday.

“Speaks to me”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

For some reason, I just love coming back to this place. I find myself walking out of my way to get to it and like to just sit around on the benches. It is hard for me to articulate why like t so much, but it has to be that I visited it on my first stop in Paris when i just completely fell in love with this city.

“Away from the crowds”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The oldest square in Paris, tranquil and surprisingly quiet. Get to it along Rue des Francs-Bourgeois from Boulevard Beaumarchais (metro Chemin Vert or buses 20, 29, 65 will get you close). Explore the boutiques and cafés under the bordering arches. Even more delightful is the garden of the Hôtel de Béthune-Sully (not to be confused with the Sully Hotel on Rue Saint-Antoine). Reach this other little gem through the arch at the south west corner of place des Vosges. (http://sully.monuments-nationaux.fr/en/)
