Owner description: This public square, which has a statue of Napoleon in its center, is known for the glitzy jewelry stores that surround it.

This is a favourite of mine, every time I visit Paris I hire a velib & ride down the rue de Rivoli then back along the rue St Honore cruising through this square along the way. It's a really beautiful square (especially early morning, when there arent too many people around) & if you go in for a closer look, the jewellery stores are really quite extraordinary - with the price tags that are suitably stunning! Worth a look if you are near the Tuilleries.

A grand square in the 1st arrondissement of Paris and famous for its greenish Vendome Column erected by Napoleon (torn down once and re-erected as a prominent feature of this square.)

In addition of having a piece of city history , this square also earned its reputation as home of some deluxe hotels (eg. Ritz) and salons of top fashion designers and famous jewelers. A place for celebrities to shop.

This was not my favorite square in Paris but it was great in panoramic views, day or night. I would sometimes came here for a walk in the morning or early evening, taking pictures and window shopping when I had a longer stay in this city.

Not a place on top list for first time traveler who may only stay in Paris for a few days, but worth to visit if you have sufficient time to explore Paris.

We walked to this square from Louvre by Rue Rivoli, which is very lovely, specially that if it is a rainy day you can hide and do some window shopping. Take a right to turn to Place Vendome and continue to do some luxury window shopping. In the middle of the square there is a column, a replica of the original. The famous Ritz hotel is under reconstruction right now.

A lot of high fashion shops here and the first Ritz being built now. More just a walk-through for me.

This is an unique place in Paris. Here you can see the Ritz (which is now being remodeled) and Chanel.
It is a quiet place and with a lot of style.
It is in a good location.
