To get to Place Vendome follow the Rues de Castiglione and de la Paix. At the end of your journey you will find one of the most famous squares in Paris.
Intricately linked with the history of France this architectural jewel was commissioned by King Louis XIV and designed by Jules-Hardouin Mansart. The arcades of the exquisitely fronted mansions that surround the square form an intimate salon in the heart of the capital.
Prestigious banks and the emblems of French elegance still cluster around the Austerlitz column that Napoleon erected here. Labels of luxury such as Chaumet, Boucheron, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier, Guerlain, Chanel rule the retail roost. While visiting stop at the Ritz hotel for lunch or the Palais de l’Elysée (the President’s residence).
