Surrounded by traffic now, a different sort of traffic in the 1400's. Not the place to be the cerntre of attention!

The most beautiful landscaping in the world - the stright going all the way from the Louvre, through the Concorde obelisk, down the Champs Elysées, Arch du Triomphe and reaching the La Defense CBD - was destroyed by the the repugnant ferris wheel. Not only does it block the view of the Tuileries and Louvre we used to have from... More

The Place de la Concorde is definitely a must see in Paris. At the end of the Champs Elysee's, you can see the famous obelisk, ride the fortune wheel or just wonder around seeing the wonderful views of historic buildings like the Assamblé National, along with the nice bridges and a fantastic view of the Seine. Perfect for starting or... More

Great place for photos. Every way you turn there is something to take a photo of. I really enjoyed just wandering around this place. From there you can make your way to the Louvre or the gardens which are beautiful. Would definitely recommend a visit while in Paris.

Here outside the beautiful gardens is the historical spot where Queen Marie Antoinette was beheaded in a time when France was in revolution. This is not the only historical story to be told for this place though. Here is also an Egyptian obelisk, and one can see the Eiffel Tower not from afar. The architecture of the surrounding buildings and... More

This an artefact from Egypt that arrived in Paris about 200 year's ago. While it is well preserved and has a new cap stone, there is not a lot to see. The interesting bit is about how they got it there and erected it at that time. Additionally, the nearby fountains were frozen in January - that looked good too.

We went on the big wheel. Beautiful you see the louvre and it's garden. You see the Seine and the Champs Élisée. . DO NOT GO IF IT'S TOO COLD OUTSIDE or you'll freeze! We went while the x-mas stands were still there, we had lots of fun on the rides. A do go to for sure

If you explore this city, place de la Concorde is the one of the sites which have to visit as a part of "mandatory" sites. Other way people will ask you: "Have you been to Paris, Did you see place de la Concord?". and you have to say "Yes". Actually I visited this place, but I didn't get "Wow". Yes... More
