Place de la Concorde...


As a tourist attraction the busy Place de la Concorde doesn't at first seem to have the right ingredients - it is after all just a large square - the largest in Paris - with a couple of fountains and an obelisk and at times is very busy with traffic but it is its location and the addition of a large Ferris wheel that draws crowds.

It doesn't matter how many times or during what season of the year we visit here, it always impresses us. The fact that you are surrounded by Paris landmarks, with the Eiffel Tower in the distance, the view of the Arc de Triomph up the Champs Elysees and down through the Tuileries Gardens to the Louvre.

If you have only one day in Paris then this square should definitely be a place you should visit as just one three hundred and sixty degree turn will let you know exactly where you are.
