Place de la Concorde Tours

star-4.5
35 Reviews
Place de la Concorde
Situated on the right bank of the Seine River and flanked by the idyllic Tuileries Garden and the grand boulevard of Champs-Élysées, Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris. The infamous guillotines of the French Revolution were located here, but today the square is best known for striking monuments, elegant hotels, and elaborate fountains.

The Basics
Given its location between the Champs-Élysées and the Louvre, Place de la Concorde is included on many Paris tours. It’s a popular photo spot for open-top bus tours, with views of the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and the Seine River. A walking tour offers the best photo opportunities, and a bike or Segway tour is a leisurely way to explore the square. You can also admire Place de la Concorde from the water on a Seine cruise.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Free Wi-Fi hotspots are located on and around Place de la Concorde.
  • The square is a must-see for those interested in revolutionary French history.
  • Place de la Concorde is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
Located on the right bank of the Seine River in the heart of historic Paris, Place de la Concorde borders the Seine, the Jardin des Tuileries, and the Champs-Élysées. The most scenic way to arrive is on foot, either walking down the Champs-Élysées from the Arc de Triomphe, or strolling through the Tuileries Garden from the Louvre.  Alternatively, the closest metro station is Concorde (Lines 1, 8, and 12).

When to Get There
Place de la Concorde is one of Paris’ busiest squares, a lively destination at all hours of the day and night. Head there on a sunny afternoon to make the most of the surrounding park, visit during the day to browse the shops along the Champs-lysées, or pass through on a night tour to admire Paris’ nighttime skyline. 

History of Place de la Concorde
Dating back to the mid-18th century, the Place de la Concorde was originally named Place Louis XV and featured an imposing equestrian statue of the French king. During the French Revolution, the square was known as Place de la Révolution and famously served as the execution site of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Today, it’s best known for the gigantic Egyptian obelisk—part of the ancient Ramses II temple of Thebes—towering over its central plaza and its two magnificent fountains: Fontaine des Mers and Elevation of the Maritime.
