Place De La Bastille, Paris Reviews - Write a Review

  • Place de la Bastille is a famous place downtown Paris. It's very easy to get there by foot or public transport. Some of the side streets are quite interesting and lively.

  • Birthplace of the revolution but undergoing repair so, meh. Also while we're here there was a big "manefestation" about labor reforms. Riot police compris. Should be a cool place but...

  • I did a flash running tour of Paris during the jog to the tower, stopping to photo what happened to catch my eye. I did get turned around briefly upon reaching the Place de la Bastille July monument, but fortunately I looked up, into the sky, and saw two contrails merging to form the shape of a bow and arrow, so naturally I took it as a sign from the universe and followed its direction to the river Seine. Most people just read street signs. Me: giant bow and arrow in the sky. Growing weary of constantly experiencing the watchful eye of creation at a rate that could turn Dawkins to a swami, I make tracks to the tower.

  • You don't have to run as fast as you can to fit that visit in your programm. Yeah it's very beautiful but not one of the must must visit

  • Beautiful historic place: this is where the 1789 French revolution started, a revolution that shook the entire world! Beside the column in the middle, you have plenty of restaurants of all types and at all prices all around and even a beautiful Opera House, Nike shop, and more.
