    An elegant oasis in the heart of the city. Perfectly manicured gardens surrounded by refined architecture and fashionable cafés.

    What I really liked in the place des Vosges was the many art galleries around this square. I pinned this place in memory so that I could return and afford some of the arts when I become a wealthy art collector.

    One of my favorite spots in Paris. Architecturally stunning and built around a lovely park. A nice place to sit in the grass and soak up the sun or enjoy a coffee at one of the many cafes on the plaza.

    Place des Vosges is a square in the Marais district of Paris. Le Marais is the Jewish Quarter and is one of my favorite neighborhoods. Places des Vosges is also right by where Victor Hugo used to live and adds a regal welcome to the area.

    Get something from the little store around the corner from Ma Bourgogne and snack under the tree colonnades and feel a little sophisticated because of the well kept vegetation and the stately apartments all around.

    パリに住む知人、Alexが「小さい頃よく遊んだ」と連れて行ってくれた公園。小さいけど品のいい場所でした。横にあるカフェでサンドイッチを4人で食べたとき、女子3人もいたのにAlexが甲斐甲斐しくシェアしてくれたのを覚えてます。「奢るよ!」というフランス語を教わっていたら、隣の老夫婦が「Merci!」と言ってきて、違う違う、そっちじゃねぇ!と大笑いしたのも、とっても楽しい思い出です。

    Place des Vosges is one of perhaps the loveliest squares in Paris. The homes on the square were homes of the French aristocracy. Brad and I were there one mid-March. It was a crisp, chilly day, children played and dogs got walked around this unique place.

    This park was a block from my old apartment and is considered one of the most iconic in all Paris. I'd highly recommend taking a stroll here and checking out some of the many shops nearby!

    The oldest square in Paris. Surrounded by beautiful buildings built by royalty, the well manicured trees and fountains makes it a great place to peoplewatch.
