“Place des Vosges”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This is a must on any trip to Paris. Apart from the major sights, e.g, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower,
etc. it is good to marvel at the spectacular symmetry of the Place des Vosges. There are a couple of buildings that are not quite symmetrical and when you look closely they can can be found.
The other great thing about this part of Paris is exploring the streets of the Marais...a village within a city.

Place des Vosges is beautiful with the buildings and park but it didn't really make sense for us to go when it was in the 30's. I would say save this for the warmer months and don't make a special trip in the late fall/winter.

“A perfect square”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

The beautiful harmony of the colours of the natural stonework of the buildings with the subtle variations of the architecture surrounding about a hectare of park filled with colonnades of neatly-clipped trees make for arguably Paris' most elegant park.
The buildings are residence above with shops and restaurants below, where you may be lucky enough to find a serendipitous extra like manouche jazz band, Borsalino, playing.
Sadly, my favourite shop in all of Paris, Andre Bissonnet's tiny store crammed with lovingly-restored ancient musical instruments, is now gone with Monsieur B. retired.
It is worthy staying in the Marais just to visit the Place des Vosges on a daily basis.

“My favorite spot in Paris”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Having been to Paris 20 times, I can't believe I haven't commented on La Place des Vosges, my favorite spot in Paris. The harmony of the architecture and the beauty and attractiveness of the shops and restaurants bring me back every year. Years ago I brought my grandchildren here to play in the sandboxes. The surrounding neighborhood and its shops are not to be missed. I just love this place!
