Hôtel de Ville Paris' city hall
Hôtel de Ville is Paris' beautiful city hall. While you're taking in how pretty it is, don't miss my article about how tons and tons of executions were held right out front.
Hôtel de Ville is right in the center of town, and you're sure to run into a few times during your stay in Paris. Something to keep in mind when you're in this area is that BHV, a huge and very useful (and pretty expensive) department store is right across the street. So if you need batteries for your camera or an electrical adaptor for your iPad, keep this place in mind.
