We had a wonderful evening playing on 100 year old Fair rides and games with wonderful attendants and circus artists, then we were off to a beautiful, elegant evening dinner at L'Automobile Club de France at 6 Place de la Concorde, 75008 Paris, France. It was a such a long and beautiful day that I barely remember the food, I... More

One of the best place to be in Paris. If you have a little time, go to the middle of the place : you will see a great view of the straight line which begin at la piramide du Louvre and finished at la Défense.

A very busy traffic circle where several major boulevards converge. A large obelisk is in the center and the ferris wheel on one side. Not a great place to be a pedestrian unless very vigilant. Any city tour will pass through here eventually.

This is a bit of history and worth a short visit. Easy to miss when you are driving by in a taxi. Hard to rave about it though.

Place de la Concorde is at the very heart of touristic Paris. Sandwiched between the Tuileries Gardens to the East and the Champs Elysee to the West, it is limited by the river Seine on the South side and the Hotel de Crillon and the Automobile Club de France and the start of the rue de Rivoli on the North...

... right in the middle of town. Mixture of streets, free space and some attractions like the ferris wheel.

This is located at one end of Champs-Elysees and is the city's largest square. At this site, sits a meaningful obelisk which was a gift from Egypt, two gorgeous fountains, a temporary tremendous sized ferris wheel and what I find most fascinating is that this is a site where a guillotine once stood. One of the most famous guillotined was... More

Situated in the 8th arrondissement at the end of the Champs-Elysées, Place de la Concorde is the largest Square in Paris. Designed as an octagon, the square is decorated with statues and fountains. I was impressed by the wonderful Egyptian Obelisk in the center. But the traffic is too heavy!
