The Place de la Concorde is located at the end of Champs-Elysees walk and is worth the spot. It combines Parisian and Egyptian architecture. The fountains are spectacular and this is a central hub to go to many different iconic places. Plus it provides at great view of the Arc de Triomphe down the Champs-Elysees.This is the city's largest public square has important historic value as well as 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.The square itself is adorned by some nice fountains and an obelisk in the middle. It's nice to take photos around here, but not much else to see here. What is great is that Concorde is right at the other end of the Champs Elysees from the Arc De Triomphe. And it was nice to walk that long avenue. Quite romantic actually, the first half of the Champs Elysees.
