This has so much beauty in this one block. So much history as well. The obelisk over 3,000 years old. I love the instructions on the side of the obelisk - looks like IKEA instructions to me. This is also the place where Marie Antoinette...More

It’s a nice enough square, but at the end of the day it is just a tall pointy thing with cars driving around it.

Cross this big square at your own risk as there is always a lot of traffic trying to race by. Big obelisk in the center. Famous statues and a fountain. Stone, no greenery. Way too polluted. It's very historic as this is where the nobility...More

Apart from a large open area with ponds and the nearby river Seine there is only a main monument here which is not that impressive.

This huge square is so beautiful - especially on a sunny day - both fountains were on and it was just amazing. Lots of history here and lots of great photography angles! Be aware of the traffic and be careful!

Came here via the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysee, on the way to the Louvre - which is a lot of major sights. Stopped for ice cream - less but here.
