This is where the author lived, on the exquisite Place des Vosges. Come tour his townhouse and see how he lived plus a lot of his memorabilia. See how he slipped out to visit his mistress.

Well worth a visit to this free small museum. The house in the Place des Vosges is on a couple of floors. It has an interesting reconstruction of Victor Hugo's home. The Chinese room was impressive.

Free visit, so might as well! Worth going to simply to hang out at the Place des Vosges. Grab a gelato at Amorino and stay for a while in the gorgeous area!
