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.

I have always loved the Place de la Concorde, but in September of 2017 when we were in Paris, much of it was covered by staging. This made parts of the Place de la Concorde difficult to see. Also, only one of the fountains has...More

Once you have visited the Arc de Triomphe and you are on your way to see the Tour Eiffel, don´t forget to visit Place de la Concorde. Enjoy some egyptian history, it won´t take long and it´s worth it!

We stumbled upon Place de la Concorde when we walked from the L'Arc de Triomphe down the Champs-Elysées. We hadn't planned to visit it so it was a nice surprise when we arrived. The Egyptian Obelisk and fountains made for nice photo ops. I didn't...More

We did not spend much time here as there is really not too much to see and will need to dodge traffic to get pictures in some cases. Don't expect any fabulous views or anything. The obelisk is actually really interesting in the pictorial story...More

This is a huge square with literally nothing going on. Boring. Not many people. No one gathering. One man selling crepes from a small portable bike truck thing. Boring. Luckily on our way to and from other sites.

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.
