The city's largest public square has a lengthy history as well - 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.

In the middle of Paris and the street. Be careful. Historic. Beautiful fountains. Great perspectives of the the Champs les Elysees.

Really isnt worth coming here - it dwarfs compared to all the other great sights to experience in Paris. Spend your time somewhere else.

A big traffic circle full of cars and buses day and night. Crossing it can be a challenge to your safety. And it's polluted. Historic site of the guillotine. Parks, museums, grand hotels, official government buildings surround it. It's one of the centers of Paris.

This is a great spot for taking photos. On a clear day you can see clearly the Arc de Triomphe in the distance.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

You don't need tickets for the Place or the park.
I photographed female pickpockets tackling two young Asian men at this location. They were using the "Sign a charity petition" distraction. Apparently there is a website for publishing photos of the faces of the Paris pickpockets. I have not been able to find such a site - please provide appropriate links. You will need to use words for dot or at (also space as if it is text) to overcome the censor bot on this site else your link wont get published. The two women engaging the men are well in view in my photo. The lookout woman rushed at me. She is holding her clipboard up to cover her face in the photo. Asians are a top choice for pickpockets because many of the Chinese who travel are wealthy. Most significantly, a large number of Chinese citizens don’t have easy access to credit and debit cards, so they often carry large amounts of cash, and thieves know this.
