République’s central plaza may be this inner-Paris neighborhood’s focal point, but the textured facades of its buildings and scientific museums add dimension to the neighborhood’s allure. Place de la République serves as a community juncture—artists and creatives from the square’s surrounding neighbourhoods gather around its iconic statue, and around the cafe tables and garden benches in its vicinity. République is prized for another reason—the plaza conveniently rests above a Metro station.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
