Place Vendome, Paris

(3.9/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Must see in Paris. Famous Ritz hotel is there. All major luxury brands lining up the square. 2 steps from museums.  more »
  • It is one of the iconographic representations of Paris. When you think of the squares of the Ville Lumière can't think of this square. Inside there are a series of luxury boutique luxury but not (almost exclusively Jewelers), headquarters of fashion houses (eg the Valentino) and the famous Hotel Ritz. It's elegant, forcibly exudes splendor and luxury in every detail and is perfect to convey the French allure (except Paris) from every angle you look at it. Well worth a visit. If then you have chance ... you do well to do some shopping!

  • One of the historical areas of the city, the famous revolutionary events associated with it. The Ritz, from which left Princess Diana in his latest trip convoy impression also produce the impression of shopping with astronomical prices
