  • Saturday morning on the Place des Vosges
Gems of Paris by French Moments

Amongst all the squares of Paris, the Place des Vosges is one of my favourite. Situated in the Marais, not far from the Place de la Bastille, the square is coming back to life with the coming of Spring.


This morning I was on a mission to take photos of a few little things in the Marais and thought it would be a nice idea to sit down in the square’s garden for a quick lunch (we say in French ‘manger sur le pouce‘). With its fresh new leaves the square appears so much different from Winter. Marvelling at this historic square of Paris, I feel so privileged to be here… Here are a series of photos I took this very morning at Place des Vosges. Enjoy!
