Unfortunately, there is so much construction now in Paris, it's hard to see the beautiful attractions. We were able, however, to get great shots of the Ferris Wheel near the Place and Eiffel Tower... It didn't help that most days we were there, it was pretty grey, but we did enjoy walking around!

Place de la Concorde was a place you need to add to your trip. Although there were just the statues but still is a good photo opps for your collection. Park next to the Concorde offer a great rest bites. Good to sit and relax to feed the ducks. Do what the Parisian do and sit on the deck chair... More

The Oblisk at the Place de la Concorde is really beautiful, but sadly there are quite a few pickpockets there trying to get you to sign petitions, just be careful. We did not know it when we were there, but learned about it at the Musee Carnavalet, that sadly this is the place where Marie Antoinette was executed.

The Place de la Concorde is situated at the end of the Champs Elysees. It is where many people met their fate at the guillotine including Marie Antoinette. It's well worth a visit to just think of the history.

To stand where Joan of Arc was guillotined and many hundreds more befell the same fate was just strange to think people made a day of it to come to this place and watch life being taken for an ideal. It must have been a strange time. Now with the plinth that stands here it is worth the visit.

As you walk around the major attractions of Paris it is hard to miss this place. The traffic is very busy so it takes a while to focus and realized the historical importance of this square.

The Place de la Concorde is one of the major public squares in Paris and is the largest square in the French capital The Place was designed by Ange-Jacques Gabriel in 1755 as a moat-skirted octagon between the Champs-Élysées to the west and the Tuileries Garden to...

Amazing structures but not much to do. We went by on hop off/on buses and hopped off to take pictures.... busy street and intersection, then walked to next attraction to avoid street noise. However passing by at night splendid.

It's a must to visit la Concorde square. It's just facing one of the most beautiful bridges of Paris. It was the square where the "guillotine" was installed to cut the heads of all who were against the French Revolution (including the King). On the same bloody square, decades after the revolution, the an Egyptian obelisk was installed as a... More
