Must be the largest square in the city. A massive open space right in the heart of downtown. The big square always seems to be buzzing with activity.

It's funny that the scene of some of the bloodiest class warfare is named for peace and agreement. Here the Terror took Louis XVI and Robespierre alike. With the Bastille long gone, it might be the most visible legacy of the revolution.

Remember the ending scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Anne Hathaway throws her cell phone into the fountain? It was here at Place de la Concorde! It is the central area dividing the Tuileries Garden and the start of Champs-Elysees road. The fountains go off frequently. You'll also find one of 2 Luxor Obelisk here. The 2nd one is in Egypt.

This picturesque area is always buzzing with activity. Not much here, but the Champs Elysee to one side and Tuilleries to the other.

This huge square at the end of the Champs Elisees avenue is where the guillotine was installed during the French Revolution - and its history includes the decapitation of Marie Antoinette, which happened right here. Today, the square hosts a fountain, several statues and an obelisk, which was given as a gift from Egypt.

A landmark in a very unique part of Paris. If you make it to this spot look around and enjoy a cocktail at the Ritz.

Place de la Concorde is located in the Eighth arrondissement and is a large public square. One of its main features is a opulent fountain (my favorite fountain in Paris) with the statutes encased in gilded gold. The Champs-Elysees and the Tuileries Gardens are close by Place de la Concorde.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

It's the largest square in Paris,situated between the Tuileries and the Champs-Elysées. This is where Marie Antoinette was beheaded. I believe its between the right and left bank because I didnt realize while I kept walking from the right bank, I reached the square then further on found myself on the bohemian quarters of the left bank.
