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.

Take a guide and be aware of pickpockets as this is a tourist square. Be careful if crossing the street to go to the fountains and pyramid. Toilets located just inside the garden gate on the right.

The Champs Elysees run into the Place de la concorde on one side and the Tulieres begin on the other. One side is a block from the Seine and the other a block from the famous shopping street of Paris - Rue Saint Honore.

you can ride the big wheel, look up the Champs Elysees to Arc du Triomphe or just enjoy the wide open space but look out for cars zipping around you.

Place de la Concorde have some of the historic and symbolic monuments. It is situated at one end of Champs Elysees and on other side Tuileries Garden followed by Louvre Museum. It should be one of the places in your list when visiting Paris.

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.
