    We went back to this place attracted by the fountain which was water, which was quite rare so far. The fountain is round with pools and the "sphinx" spitting water. This is to remind the return to Egypt of Napoleon in 1808. The ornate column in the middle is engraved battles of Napoleon such as "Dantzick" "Ulm" "Marengo", and also that of the pyramids, etc. it is topped with an allegorical statue of victory in gilded bronze. This place isn't really a resting place by the movement of cars on the roads that surround it. However stick under the shades of this small space, we can enjoy the view of the fountain and the noise of water flowing Sphinxes. A newsstand is also close to the metro station. Can sit awhile and then take the metro to "Châtelet" station on the site. Similarly, in front there is the "theatre of Châtelet" which always offers remarkable and prestigious events. On the other side, the "Theatre of the city" is very diverse in its programming. Many cafes with terrace are located around the square where you can hang out with a drink. The proximity of the Seine and the bridge to the Exchange to spend on the île de la Cité and the left bank, gives this place a character in place of visit you for the visit from the center of Paris. The view on the Concierge is also notable from the Place. Street Saint Denis and the Forum des Halles are also close to this place to the North. She is one of the major hubs of Paris.

    It's a very nice place in the heart of Paris. The square itself is full of charm, driving pedestrians in a hurry, visitors the nose in the air, not knowing where to start. Do round the place to pazrtir of the City Theatre (Bernard ex-Sarah), looks at the quay of the Seine with a view of the Palace of Justice, the Concierge, the Sainte-Chapelle on one side; on the other side, we see from the flower market square which is really worth to stop, stroll through the different stores filled with flowers of all countries. An enchantment. It feels quiet, the smells around us. From there, we go to our Lady admire the architecture of the Cathedral and to remember his hunchback... To really do this walk, otherwise unknown Paris and all its charm. Down on the Bank of the Seine, watch the boats sail with their batch of tourists photographing all-out. Feels happy...

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
