We hit this spot along our walk from Jardine de la tuiliere, Champs Elysees and back along the Siene. Our timing was perfect as the Eiffel lit up and sparkled in the background. The picture doesn't capture how beautiful it was in person.

The Place de la Concorde and the adjoining Jardine de la tuiliere is literally where history shaped Paris, from the ancient revolutions to the ongoing Gilets jaunes movements. The Luxor Obelisk stands proudly there, a testament to ancient Franco-Egyptian friendship. It's a great walk down...More

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.

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.
