Nice area at the end of Champ Elysees. There's a fountain here, Luxor Obelisk (Egyptian monument), and Roue de Paris (Wheel of Paris). We grabbed fresh pancakes from here too. A man was making it in the middle of Concorde area. Was delicious! We also...More

A very busy intersection and public square between the Champs Elysées and the Tuileries Gardens. Good to visit.

When you first arrive to the very large open square you think this is the Concorde. You don't realize there is also a very large park next to it. This space is massive. The buildings surrounding it are beautiful and it is just a beautiful...More

We really absorbed the Parisian "way of life" being immersed in the history. The oblisk was sensational. The walk to the Louvre was stunning. Then in another direction a walk along the Champs Elysee... WOW how much more name dropping?

This historic square has been around for 260+ years.... and borders to the West on the Champs-Élysées and to the East, the magnificent Tuileries Garden! The sculptures and, fountains are GRAND! Its a definite "MUST SEE"!!

The Egyptian obelisk is really incredible and the level of detail embedded to it is astonishing, just after exiting the Tuileries Garden, however the amount of traffic surrounding the obelisk is awful. Simply crossing the road takes a few minutes due to their large size...More

The Obelisk is just located in the central square surrounding by some views points. This Obelisk is the missing part in Luxor Temple at the entrance. It's the missing beauty there now. But it may link two city even thousands of miles... before you cross...More

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 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.
