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.

The Place is located in front of the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Has a Napoleon Statue that was made from the cannons of his army. Its very clean, and clear view, you can shop around and admire the buildings that surround the monument. Very elegant.

It's nice to window shop around the plaza and admire the excess. The central monument to Napoleon is supposedly cast from the melted down bronze cannons of his conquests.

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
