Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Magnificent Parisian square lined with the largest Jewelers in the world, it was a treat to make window shopping dreaming in front of the beautiful exposed jewelry. A must if you are in the neighborhood.

  • Worth walk it and see the jewelry and the big Parisian stores, a place of passage if it is from les toulleries to la´Opera

  • ... because shopping is not within the reach of all budgets on the Place Vendôme ;-) However, this charming place worth a visit for its beautiful buildings and luxury shops it welcomes.
