Place Colette is near the Comédie-Française. Place Colette had no name (it was simply part of the rue Saint-Honoré) until 1966 when it was named after the writer Colette (1873-1954) following a request by her only daughter, Colette de Jouvenel (1913-1981), to André Malraux (1901-1976) who was then Minister of Culture.

Suggestion: An interesting nearby walk that includes Place Colette.
