Day 1 Paris – Place Dauphine – Île de la Cité (Part 2 of 4)

I had seen some photos of a cool little place on the internet before I had left for Paris, so I headed for Place Dauphine. I wasn’t disappointed! I loved this little square cut off from the main streets.

The Place Dauphine was laid out in 1607–10, when the Place Royale was still under construction. It was among the earliest city-planning projects of Henri IV.

  1. My husband’s family’s apartment is just around the corner of Place Dauphine. I’ve written about this marvelous little spot many times. Hands down, it’s one of the greatest little gems in Paris. Winter. Summer. Spring. Fall. It’s always great!!
