The Place des Voges is absolutely gorgeous...there is a beautiful park surrounded by brick apartments that are not to be believed. It is a wonderful park for a picnic lunch. A definite must while in Paris.

Maybe it's because my husband re-proposed to me here, but I think this is a very romantic spot to sit on a bench with someone you love. The symmetry of the Place is very appealing and it is an historic spot (if you love history).
