The city's largest public square has a lengthy history as well - it served as the site of the guillotine that was used to execute Louis XVI, Marie-Antoinette, Robespierre and many others during the French Revolution.

Take a guide and be aware of pickpockets as this is a tourist square. Be careful if crossing the street to go to the fountains and pyramid. Toilets located just inside the garden gate on the right.

The Champs Elysees run into the Place de la concorde on one side and the Tulieres begin on the other. One side is a block from the Seine and the other a block from the famous shopping street of Paris - Rue Saint Honore.

you can ride the big wheel, look up the Champs Elysees to Arc du Triomphe or just enjoy the wide open space but look out for cars zipping around you.

I photographed female pickpockets tackling two young Asian men at this location. They were using the "Sign a charity petition" distraction. Apparently there is a website for publishing photos of the faces of the Paris pickpockets. I have not been able to find such a site - please provide appropriate links. You will need to use words for dot or at (also space as if it is text) to overcome the censor bot on this site else your link wont get published. The two women engaging the men are well in view in my photo. The lookout woman rushed at me. She is holding her clipboard up to cover her face in the photo. Asians are a top choice for pickpockets because many of the Chinese who travel are wealthy. Most significantly, a large number of Chinese citizens don’t have easy access to credit and debit cards, so they often carry large amounts of cash, and thieves know this.
