Place Vendome is the centerpiece of a magnificent eight-sided square, first laid out in 1699 to show off an equestrian statue of Louis XIV. The statue was removed amid revolutionary fervor in 1792, and replaced in 1806 with the Colonne de la Grande Armée. This was modeled on Trajan's column in Rome, and decorated with Napoleon's military exploits. The present column is a replica, however, as the original was pulled down during the 1871 Paris Commune. This square represents the best of well-heeled Paris, and is home to an abundance of exclusive boutiques, jewelers, and fashion labels, including Cartier, Boucheron, Trussardi, van Cleef & Arpels, along with several banks, the French Ministry of Justice, and the Ritz Hotel.

Place Vendome Reviews
パリで一番好きな場所。ヴァンドーム広場。愛するヴァンクリーフには必ず訪れますが、日本とは違ってとても高価なものがあるので扉も二重。本当にラグジュアリーな空間ですので是非いいものを見せてもらいましょう。お店に入るもよし、道を歩いて新しいお店を開拓するもよし、世界一ラグジュアリーな空間です。 more »My favorite place in Paris. Place Vendome. I always visit my beloved Van Cleef, but unlike Japan, there is something very expensive, so the door is double. It's a really luxurious space, so let's show them something good. It is the most luxurious space in the world, even if you enter the shop, or you can walk down the street and open up a new shop.
questa piazza e' da infarto sotto tutti i punti di vista....nel periodo natalizio e' piu' bella naturalmente ma in una mattinata di luglio di pieno sole ha dato ugualmente il meglio di sé...tanta gent... more »this square is a heart attack in all respects.... In the Christmas period is more beautiful of course but on a July morning of full sun gave the best of itself... so many people sitting in relaxation... the usual magnificent palaces and the usual sumptuous shops of rich people. beautiful to be embarrassing... refined more than a diamond... held by God... respected and pampered as such a place deserves... I wonder in the hands of the Romans what would have happened to this authentic world wonder....
I read up on this monument as that was what I thought it was. The area was originally for houses but unfortunately bankers moved in and created opulent homes. Luckily the square has remained intact. Now there are bankers and jewellers among the buildings. As you can see the square was rather quite as it was early morning when we came to see it. Not many places to sit down and rest until you get to the park. Luckily we took our sunglasses as it was a gorgeous day in February 19.
Not the most popular yet very interesting place to be. Strongly recommend to reap up some history on the Place Vendome itself as well as the famous Ritz hotel.
