Create an itinerary including Place des Vosges
The oldest planned square in Paris, Place des Vosges is a quiet spot surrounded by cafes and shops. Listen to the trickle of water from one of the four fountains while sitting at a bench. Henri IV built this perfect square 140 sq m (460 sq ft) from 1605 to 1612 to use as a royal pavilion for duels. Green lawns radiate out from its center. Expertly manicured lindens surround a formal plantation of mature linden trees called a bosquet, which provide a shady oasis.

  • Beautiful, you should visit. We arrived there in the afternoon and many people were in the garden relaxing. It is surrounded by beautiful old buildings , nice cafes and art galleries.

  • A super cute park in Paris.. I spent some time here during the summer.. a lovely vibe with locals sunbathing, reading books or riding bikes… a lovely fountain adds some ambience with the sound of water splashing… surrounded by some houses, it’s a quintessentially Parisian
  • Singular in its type. You can come and enjoy a surrounded place by buildings. You can also find lot of art galleries if you walk around... Cannot be missed if you visit Paris
