This is a lovely square that is dominated by the famous Napoleon column. There are lots of high-end shops around, but one cannot ignore the famous Ritz hotel, which adds a lot of character (and prestige) to the square.

Attractive plaza with some very impressive couture, hotels etc. Nice to walk around some 'space' for a change in the centre of a city. Worth a walk around and if you carry on through it brings you out on Rue du Rivoli.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
