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.

This is a great way to walk to the Louvre from the Champs Elysees. You walk across the Place de la Concorde, past the big Ferris wheel and through the Jardine des Tuileries. There are stands selling roasted chestnuts and some beautiful fountains and statues....More

This is an extremely busy roadway area but you must go to this section. Just be careful with all the traffic.

We visited the area in a chilly weekend. The views (pyramid, palaces, Champs Elysees) as expected, but live ;). We both walked around the area as well as taking the Open Bus (hop on, hop off). Recommended. Take your time.

Making our way from having lunch at le saint Augustin to the Eiffel Tower you get a great view of place de la Concorde as you are passing through the entire square

Really impressive feeling of space which can be quite rare in Paris, with a unique view of the Eiffel Tower and the Arch de Triomphe! And yet surrounded by the angry Paris Traffic which seems distant and small compared to the viewscape. From here you...More

Place de la Concorde is situated at the end of the Champs-Elysées. Today it is famous for the Luxor Obelisk (a 3,300 year old Egyptian obelisk erected on the square in May 1998), the surrounding prestigious hotels, and the two monumental fountains (Fontaine des Mers...More

For sure it is famous, but when you walk you realize that it is mainly to get the Parisian traffic around. I got lost several times before finally finding the little rue of my meeting.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

You don't need tickets for the Place or the park.
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.
