Place Vendome, Paris

(800+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Place Vendome is the centerpiece of a magnificent eight-sided square, first laid out in 1699 to show off an equestrian statue of Louis XIV. The statue was removed amid revolutionary fervor in 1792, and replaced in 1806 with the Colonne de la Grande Armée. This was modeled on Trajan's column in Rome, and decorated with Napoleon's military exploits. The present column is a replica, however, as the original was pulled down during the 1871 Paris Commune. This square represents the best of well-heeled Paris, and is home to an abundance of exclusive boutiques, jewelers, and fashion labels, including Cartier, Boucheron, Trussardi, van Cleef & Arpels, along with several banks, the French Ministry of Justice, and the Ritz Hotel.

  • With these reports on Place Vendôme on our monitors expected to something other than a few discrete windows of very beautiful houses of French jewelry. This lack of foil for onlookers... spend if we're not far but not essential!

  • Nice big square with luxury hotels and shops like the Ritz and Rolex
  • Nice place, big open space near the central pole
  • The Vendome Column, built 1803, carried the statue of Napoleon on its apex and praised 'Napoleon the Great' at the base. However, it was pulled down in 1870 during the Communard uprising.
  • It is just very beautiful and makes you feel you went back in time!! I have no idea why this place is not famous!!!
  • Nice place
