Great for a 10 minutes stop if you are going from The Tuileries Gardens to the Eiffel Tower. Just relax and take a picture.

Walk all the way down Champs-Elysées from Arc de Triomphe and you will reach the Place before transitioning to the gardens outside the Louvre. Make sure you cross at the pedestrian crossings, the traffic can be full on.

This place is big and beautiful but it's a shame that vehicles consume most of the space. It's located near the Louvre and the Orangerie museum and you can stroll the avenue till you reach the Arc DeTriumph.

At the end of the Champs Elysses sits the Place de la Concorde- you can’t miss it if you just head for the Eqyptian Obelisk- it takes pride of place in the middle of the square - great views and really quite beautiful as well.

Like many gigantic roundabouts in Paris you don't ever want to run the outer rim to the center. Be it the Obelisk at Place De La Concorde, or Arc de Triomphe or Place de la Bastille. Use either the underground walkway systems or the crosswalks...More

One of the iconic squares of Paris, full of interesting things to see, including the 3 millennia old Egyptian obelisk. Great photo opportunities, great views over Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel tower and other amazing buildings and monuments.

It's a huge open space with traffic racing across in a seemingly chaotic rush. Worth a few minutes watching it. Also the obelisk to see, the lampposts with boats on had been painted up and looked good.

Plenty to see, get some air of this grand open infrastrucure where the cars don't take all or nearly all of the space. A close look at the obelisk is well worth it and interesting. Nice photo opportunities as well.

The obelisk has an interesting history and the square is very nice. It's also a great starting point for a stroll to the Arc.
