So much work going on around it, with netting and barriers everywhere - felt more like a construction site than a landmark worth visitin.

Hold on to your head here as this was the place the big guillotine was set up for the temporary end of the nobility. No more blood in the streets, but now a huge traffic circle, a bit chaotic, with very grand buildings and sculpture all around. Near the Louvre.

When you’re in Paris, this is just one of those places you visit. Why? You just do, that’s why.

Another of the classic Paris landmarks best experienced on a walk around the city.

This is also worth a stop. It is at an important juncture between the Louvre and the Champs-Elysees, but it is also a historic spot where Louis XIV, Marie-Antoinette, and other met there ends during the French Revolution.

I had to visit because of its place in the history of the French Revolution.

That said, it’s essentially a big public square with not much else to talk about or see in my opinion.

Go to go !

You cannot fail to walk through Place de la Concorde on your walk from Las Invalides, across the bridge towards the Tuileries and the Louvre.

This is an imposing structure. However, there is so much traffic that it spoils the experience somewhat.

I though it was worth the trip and would have loved if so much wasn’t being worked on. But as with anything old there is potential for restoration.

There is a great long view of the arch from here as well.
Also a statue of Winston Churchill not too far away

I have to say despite the chaos of the surrounding traffic I do like this famous square.
It is full of history given this is where Louis XV and Marie Antoinette met their fate at the guillotine and also the current Egyptian obelisk.
Just a nice stop off point between the Arc de Triomphe and the Tuileries Gardens

We had decided to walk up from Le Notre Dame to the Arc de Triomphe making sure that we took in the Place de la Concorde. I have always been fascinated by the history of this place noting that at one time it provided the entertainment for the masses in the form of watching heads roll from the guillotine placed strategically there. At that time it was called the Place de la Revolution - a few years ago now. Nowadays the guillotine has gone and has been replaced by this obelisk which once marked the entrance to the Luxor Temple in Egypt.

We didn't stay long - just enough time to contemplate the enormity of this square - the biggest in Paris and to gave up the Champs Elysees towards the Arc de Triomphe in the mid distance.

Apparently this whole area is due for a redesign ahead of the 2024 Olympics which will be held in this wonderful city.
