What people are saying:

Place Vendôme is a square in the first arrondissement of Paris, France. It is located to the north of the Tuileries Gardens and east of Églisede la Madeleine. This is the starting point of rue de la Paix. The regular buildings of Jules Hardouin-Mansart and the three-point decorative screens slanted at four corners give the Vendôme an octagonal appearance. Napoleon I erected the Vendome Column in the center of the square to commemorate the Battle of Austerlitz, which is still the main feature of the square today.
