A nice square with a masonic touch. Excellent view from the Arc de Triomphe, the church of the Madeleine and the gardens of the Louvre.

Yes, while this open area next to the Jardin des Tuileries is now used to park buses and is a bit of a transport thoroughfare it was once the location of executions via Guillotine. Fortunately they are no longer there! 1878

The perfect walk (for those able to really walk) starts at the Louvre and goes through the Tuileries to the Place de la Concorde (where the Tour de France ends up and where Marie Antoinette and others lost their heads). Crossing the Place is easy -- crosswalks are easily navigated -- then you'll be on the Champs Elysee. If you're... More

This is a must! To stand in the centre and see all the way in four directions fills me with a feeling of awesomeness, the grandeur of Paris; it makes me want to return again and again! From North to South from Eglise de la Madeleine to the French National assembly while from East to West from the Tuileries and... More

Such a beautiful place, gorgeous carved fountains, the obelisk is stunning, trying to read what it says is entertaining in the least. The ferris wheel is new since I visited last, which is amazing lit up at night, again, please be careful of pick pockets.

The palace is located in such place that you are bound to come across it – between Louvre and the Arc de Triomphe. Visiting it is not a life changing experience but the square is well maintained and beautifully crafted fountain and city lamps make a good photo spot.

I had been there 3 times in 2 years. It is good to see the well decorated fountain and the obelisk. Sienne river and Champ Ellisy are not too far from this place.
