Just an awesome place to stand and watch the bustling traffic and take in the landmarks that surround the Place. Do ride the Grand Roue.......was fun to view Paris from up high.

This is a huge traffic jammed plaza that serves as the dividing point between the Champs Elysees and the extended area of the Tuileries Gardens. It is particularly of interest for the obelisk that was brought back from Egypt and is near the L'Orangerie Museum which is a must stop for Monet's Water Lilies.

We stopped by this restaurant in our first day in Paris with a group of travelers. We had a great lunch there and the server was very helpful since we don't speak French. The place was full, but we enjoyed watching other people and the new environment to us.

This is a junction from which you can both see and visit so many famous Parisian sights (obelisk, Arc, champs elysees, Madeleine church, national assembly building, Seine, American church in Paris, tuileries, louvre, pont alexandre 3 etc) Interesting to be in the place where Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette - along with so many others -were guillotined. Takes a few... More

This place is a must! On every visit I stop there first. It is a good start to walk down to the Louvre or "up" to the Arc de Triomphe. You are close to the river Seine, close to a number of museums, close to the Tuileries Garden, close to the Madeleine and all the great shops in that area,... More

The Fontaines de la Concorde is a very pretty piece of art history. And it's a lot grander in person. If planning to take a stroll through nearby parks I suggest packing/taking a "picnic" and hanging out around Jardin des Tuileries for a little bit & soak up the beautiful scenery and art/sculptures.

Place de la concorde is a great area near the jardines to see. It is close to champs elyses, the louvre and notre dame. It is a very big thoroughfare in a city with narrow streets. This is one of my favorite places.

Like many other places around Paris, Place de la Concorde should be on your list as a must see.. Champs Elysses has a historic past and there is plenty to see around. you can't pass by without stopping as there's an amazing seenery if you like to take pictures.

Place de la Concorde is the junction at the bottom of the Champs Elysees where it meets Rue de Rivoli and Quai des Tuileries. The main access to the Jardins des Tuileries leads off Place de la Concorde but the only thing to "see" is the Luxor Obelisk. Apart from that it's just many, many lanes of Parisien traffic doing...
