Place Vendôme is lined with exclusive hotels and renowned jewellery shops and is one of the most famous and luxurious places worldwide. In 1810, Napoleon erected the Vendôme Column in the centre of the square, in homage to the Great Army.
The Vendôme Column is made from 1,200 cannons taken in victory whose bronze was melted down and re-cast. The square is the ideal starting place for luxury shopping in the Rue de la Paix, or visiting the Tuileries Gardens.
