Get your couture groove on at this elegant place (or square) surrounded by 18th century shopping arcades. The boutiques housed in Place Vendôme range from classics like Dior and Chanel to quirky luxury labels like master tailor Charvet, and there’s a particular focus on watches (Piaget, Patek Philippe, Van Cleef & Arpels, Swatch, Cartier, and Boucheron all have shops here). Expect to rub shoulders with some of Paris’s best dressed high society types as you shop thanks to a wealth of luxury residences and hotels (including The Ritz) lining the square.
