So had a wander round the Jewish Quarter close to the square, getting some lunch along the way. Into this beautiful but simple set of gardens I found a space on the grass and settled down to snooze and people watch in no particular order....More

After checking the map of the city, we thought we'd Uber to Place des Vosges as a starting point for our wandering through the Marais. What a splendid idea! Problem was, we became a bit side-tracked as the garden/area, itself, is quite lovely and is...More

If you have never heard of this little gem, it’s easy to pass by without noticing, but it’s well worth the detour. On two sides, under arches, there are truly beautiful galleries selling modern artefacts- sculptures, paintings and so on. You may well not be...More

The Place des Vosges has a tremendous historical value and is a great example of royal architectural aspirations BUT it is now overrun with homeless people especially near the southeast corner near the home of Victor Hugo. Tents, shopping carts, strange people sleeping day and...More

This square dates back to the early 1600s. There's a fenced in park lined with houses across streets. Take a stroll and then enjoy a meal at the Cafe Royal. Photos tell the story best!

This is a quaint little garden in the heart of Paris. It's beautiful and I found it to be a rather private sort of place, with the canopy of trees above giving it a very secret sort of feel. This is one of those places...More

A magnificent retreat at any time of the year. Just to sit amongst the trees and rest, taking in the surrounding sights or take a slow meandering walk beneath the archways that surround the Place Des Vosges is a delight. Breath in the atmosphere as...More

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
