Place de la Nation was once called the square of the throne because it was here that Louis the 14th made his triumphal entrance into Paris. Today the most important streets of the city leave from this square and crisscross Paris. A bed & breakfast near Nation is a real dive into history. From the Cours de Vincennes and the two majestic columns of Leduex there is a magnificent view of Paris that includes the silhouette of the Eiffel Tower. In the center of the square stands the statue of the Republic. In the days of the French revolution many people were guillotined here and are now buried in the small and little known Picpus cemetery nearby. From this part of the city the nightlife of Bastille or the shopping along the main boulevards can be easily reached on foot. Choose the Nation B&B that you prefer on 2binparis.com!
