Die Place Vendôme ist einer der fünf „königlichen Plätze“ von Paris und liegt inmitten der Stadt zwischen der Pariser Oper und dem Tuileriengarten im 1. Arrondissement. Der im klassizistischen Prachtstil ab Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts gestaltete und von prunkvollen Stadthäusern, genannt Hôtels particuliers, umrahmte Platz ist heutzutage vor allem bekannt als Standort des französischen Justizministeriums und des Hotel Ritz sowie für die am Platz zahlreich angesiedelten Verkaufsräume luxuriöser Schmuck- und Uhrenhersteller.
Don't go for jewellery! Went for the indoor antiques market / hall. But there was nothing left. The whole place was empty but for two shops deep in the recesses of the creepy shopping centre. Nice buildings but otherwise avoid
Place Vendôme is a very well known visiting spot that I advise everyone to pass. It hosts some of the top-tier establishments like the Ritz hotel, luxury jewelry shops and also the new Louis Vuitton flagship store that will offer a great shopping experience...or window shopping experience, depending on your needs. The square also hosts an obelisk that overviews the mentioned buildings. As the square is just a stone throw away from the Opera Bastille it is really 15-20 minutes that it will cost you to see it.
A nice place to visit for a very short time, no place or cafe to sit just luxury shopping that you can find in many other areas in Paris...
The roses at Costos Hotel are impressive. It safed our client's request!
Magnificent square with awesome architectural masterpieces surrounded by the top jewelery brand stores. If you love shopping this is your place. Not jammed with cars and convenient to walk along.
Historical place with all famous historical Jewelers of France. Not much to see but still a place with history so worth going g if you are in the area. Also it's not too far from Lafayette galleria which is another huge shopping mall. On the way there are other Jewelers which might be of interest for those interested in jewelry.
A very nice square in a posh area. Most stores around r selling hi-end watches :)
It is a relatively, silent square, especially, at evening time in the very center of Paris. It was surprisingly silent, during Christmas time. The high column in the center of the square and the surrounding not too high buildings, which mark it's shape and give the expression of the Colon's magnitude , make the beauty of it. I like less the theme m: the gloryfication of Napoleon, imitating Trayan's Colon in Rome.
Luxurious stores! When you’re in this area, don’t miss the afternoon tea in the Ritz! ;)
