4 reviews of Place des Vosges in English
A wonderful place to lounge and loll around on a sunny afternoon. But our favorite time of day here is Sunday morning, any time of year, when students from the local conservatories bring their violins and violas to the southwest arcade for seemingly impromptu concerts. Some of the best live music we have ever heard wafted out of the excellent acoustics of this passageway.
Like any major city, Paris has its homeless, and this Place shelters them on many a cold night. But they are harmless and mind their own business.
The upper Marais is our favorite neighborhood in the City of Lights, and this square is one of its many wonderful touchpoints.
A nice place, right in the middle of Paris, in a very Bourgeois area. Not far from the Bastille and the Marais. For everyone to relax, read, couples to mess around, young people to do bizarre things… Warning, you are not recommended to bring beers or other alcoholic drinks, the guards tend to not really appreciate it.

My absolute favourite place in Paris. Here one can be able to be floated simply and observe. It is oldest that the Paris places and for me also the most beautiful one. A square place of 36 aristocracy palaces surrounds, from bright stone and red brick. Beautifully the Pavillion du Roi at the south side and the Pavillion de la Reine ones directly opposite. Here Victor Hugo lived. One feels in today still.
It’s nice, yes. I imagine it is splendid in sunshine. Unfortunately 90% of my recent time spent in Paris has been accompanied by drizzle.
So the Place des Vosges just seemed like a damp green square to me.
There are 4 fountains, they weren’t on. But I understand why. What is the point of spraying up water when it is also coming down?
It’s one of those places that makes Paris what it is, but by itself is not amazing. Gorgeous buildings, fountains, greenery, laziness, romance. All the Parisian staples. A great place to munch on your lunch in the sun, I imagine.
