A landmark of Paris. A nice place to visit, and easy accessible by public transport. You can take some nice photos, but that's mainly it.

We were fortunate to live in Paris during business training. The Place de Nation was our landmark to find our tiny apartment. Fantastic experience and opportunity to work, learn and play.

We stayed at Pavilion Nation. Great little hotel, near shops and restaurants and bars! Not very busy as far as crowds. We loved the local feel of this neighborhood. Easy access to metro so you can get all over Paris from here.
