Walk all the way down Champs-Elysées from Arc de Triomphe and you will reach the Place before transitioning to the gardens outside the Louvre. Make sure you cross at the pedestrian crossings, the traffic can be full on.

This place is big and beautiful but it's a shame that vehicles consume most of the space. It's located near the Louvre and the Orangerie museum and you can stroll the avenue till you reach the Arc DeTriumph.

At the end of the Champs Elysses sits the Place de la Concorde- you can’t miss it if you just head for the Eqyptian Obelisk- it takes pride of place in the middle of the square - great views and really quite beautiful as well.

Like many gigantic roundabouts in Paris you don't ever want to run the outer rim to the center. Be it the Obelisk at Place De La Concorde, or Arc de Triomphe or Place de la Bastille. Use either the underground walkway systems or the crosswalks...More

One of the iconic squares of Paris, full of interesting things to see, including the 3 millennia old Egyptian obelisk. Great photo opportunities, great views over Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel tower and other amazing buildings and monuments.

It's a huge open space with traffic racing across in a seemingly chaotic rush. Worth a few minutes watching it. Also the obelisk to see, the lampposts with boats on had been painted up and looked good.

Plenty to see, get some air of this grand open infrastrucure where the cars don't take all or nearly all of the space. A close look at the obelisk is well worth it and interesting. Nice photo opportunities as well.

The obelisk has an interesting history and the square is very nice. It's also a great starting point for a stroll to the Arc.

You can take a 1 hour walk with a wonderful view: cross the Alexandre III bridge, pass through the Invalides, and walk on the Champs de Mars to the Eiffel Tower. Or just follow the Seine, it is shorter. Or take the metro 8... More

I am so sorry that I haven't posted a trip report yet, but I plan to within a month or so. Things have been very busy for me lately. Overall, though, I want to say that we had an absolutely FABULOUS trip with thanks to all of you. I kept a journal throughout our stay so the memories will not fade away. I thought that I would at least mention some of our favorite things: Me: Luxembourg Gardens, Monet's Gardens, Parc Monceau, Place de la Concorde, the fountains at Versailles, the...More

When I got started, I went to Amazon and Half.com and bought some good books inexpensively - Rick Steves (I know some people dislike him, but his books are Very Helpful), Fodors, Insight CityGuide: Paris. These will put right into your hand where things are, walking tours, which Metros to take, etc. Trip Advisor is great, but you will want to take some of these books with you,too. There is a big flea market on Saturdays, I believe. Try typing it into the search box, above . Have fun! - I wish...More

End of the Ferris wheel at Place de la Concorde (12 Replies)
Just to let everyone know that this is the last time the giant Ferris wheel at Place de la Concorde will be set up there. The city council have decided not to renew its installation there in November 2018. I think it will be there till May 2018, but after that will be moved to a different location.
