This is the largest square in Paris and from here you get excellent views of Madeleine Church, Assemblee Nationale (part of the French Parliament), the Luxor Obelisk (by the place where in 1792 a guillotine was built to execute Marie Antoinette and Loius XVI), a nice fountain and a glimpse of Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre Museum.

Make sure wear a pair of good walking shoes and start going towards Arc de Triomphe. You will soon be on Champs Elysees :)

Address: Metro 1, 13 : Concorde
Directions: At Rue de Rivoli.
