Worth visiting while in Paris. It’s at the top of the Champs Elysees and makes for a nice walk from there and up to arc de triomohe on the other end of the famous boulevard!

The history in the square is awesome. The obelisk marks the spot where the guillotine was during the French Revolution. From here you can see both Arcs and the Eiffel Tower.

A very busy place for traffic but worth seeing fountains and Luxor Obelisk which is over 3000 years old. We hopped off our bus and wandered around, very busy so only cross road safely using traffic lights. If short on time, can also see well...More

This is a great wide open space with some very impressive views but is let down by the large amount of cars and coaches. Its great to wander around here just to absorb the views and atmosphere.

There are great views and picture opportunities from the huge square of the Place de la Concorde at the end of Champs Elyssees. It cannot be missed as in the middle o the square is the Eqyptian Obelisk.

Great for a 10 minutes stop if you are going from The Tuileries Gardens to the Eiffel Tower. Just relax and take a picture.

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.

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.
