Owner description: 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.

From the louvre through the jardin de Tuileries, you'll get here before you continue up champs d élysées to arc du triomphe. It's amazing the way the city is designed in one straight line, pretty much. Power it is.

A lot of space.
A lot of traffic.
A lot of monuments around.
This place was designed to show Paris' beauty to the world.
The famous obelisk at its centre is worth seeing, but so are the surrounding buildings.
Take care of the sun if you visit on a sunny day, because there are no shades around.

Think about this. At 20 acres,the octagonal Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris situated between the Tuileries and Champ-Elysee
Mention the opportunity to do open spaces and jog while soaking up the attractions,than i am your man. While you strech your calves,we can see the Arc de Triumphe. Le Madeleine,The Tuileries and across the Seine, the Palais Bourbon. Where else can you put together these attractions,in passing, and still work- up a sweat?
So lets spread the historic mist,a bit. It was built in1775 and was the scene for a number of historical events,like Benjamin Franklin signing the treaty that recognized the independance of the USA. It also included the execution of Louis XVI,as well as 1343 people,including,Marie-Antoinette and Danton...... not the on-line service for home purchessing......
The obelisk you see at its center was presented by the Egyptian viceroy to Charles X. the pink granite is 3300 years old with a gilded top. It once graced Luxor,standing 23 m in hight.
How many shoulders carried this monolith across to its resting plac e,i wonder?. So what makes this the most beautiful place in Paris.... the colums,the obelisque,the statues,fountains? You be the judge. Catch a peak at the hotel de Crillon and the hotel de la Marie for a gender at the most luxurious and exclusive addresses. catch Metro lines 1,8,or 12 to station Concorde or walk up from the louvre and the Tuileries or walk down from the Champs -Elysee.....OHHHH,by the way thanks for partnering me for the run. Cool,mate.

this was literally epic experience, and it gave me something to respect... that was built a long time ago and it's just stunning :) the architecture, the freedom, the Egyptian statue in the center to remember Champollion, who discovered the Egyptian hieroglyphics etc. you should definitely visit this because it's just incredibly stunning and beautiful and this should not be missed out when you're in Paris. It's almost like you've came back to 17. century :)

We resurfaced from the Metro here and were impressed with the views and photo opportunities. We walked from here to the nearby Rue de St Honore to peruse the shops.
