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.

Small plaza, nothing special really is about the location. Free entrance, between Av Champ de Elysee and Oranjerie. Good spot for pictures

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.

This is a lovely public square w/ stunning fountains and you can see all the way down the Champs-Elysées to see the Arc de Triomphe. It's surrounded by beautiful buildings and the U.S. Embassy is very close.

Nice plaza where important meetings (and actions) during french history has taken place. The general area is also very nice with street vendors and other shops also promoting their merchandise.

Because of the openness of the plaza, there are wide-sweeping views that encompass the US embassy, the Tour Eiffel, and the historical artifacts in its center. Perfect at sunset to set a multi-colored backdrop the already layered background.

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.
