The historic moment rises in the center of one of Paris' upscale neighborhoods. There always seems to be something new here, including an art exhibit last time I visited.Recommended for:

This gorgeous plaza is home to some of the most luxurious retail in Paris. A nice place to walk through on a long stroll but little to hold your interest unless you are shopping.Recommended for:

Place Vendome is actually a really beautiful square that is literally surrounded by luxury: from the Ritz Paris, to the luxury brands that line the square and the street leading up to it. I really like the prominent Napolean's Trajan Column that serves also like a beacon since this can be seen from the bustling Opera or Haussman shopping area. Acting sort of like a homing device, it helps the lost hone in on their location and find their way again.Recommended for:

The Vendome Column, modeled after Trajan's column, was initially erected by Napoleon after his victory at Austerlitz (part of it was built out of captured cannons). It has become an iconic symbol of Paris (one of many) and is a quick and cool visit.
