Place de la Concorde

February 28th, 2009 by paris

The Place de la Concorde, located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, is a busy city square that is in close proximity to many tourist attractions. It is located at the east end of the Avenue des Champs-Elysees, a well-known Parisian street that features many cafes, shops, and restaurants. The Place de la Concorde is easily accessible by cab, bus, Metro, or on foot when walking along the Champs-Elysees.

Although the Place de la Concorde is situated in a relatively expensive area of Paris, visitors can still find ways to be entertained on a limited budget. At the center of the Place is the Obelisk, a historic Egyptian monument, and there are also various fountains and statues to explore. The Tuileries Gardens border the Place de la Concorde, and a short walk across the Tuileries leads to the Musee de l’Orangerie and the Louvre, two famous museums in Paris.

There are many options available for reasonably priced food when visiting the Place de la Concorde. The Louvre has a food court in its shopping center, and within the Tuileries Gardens are several cafes that offer light fare for lunch. Seafood lovers can indulge at the Vin & Maree Bistro, located at 165 rue St.-Honore, for delicious food at a good price.

Those who are watching their budget but would like to stay at a nice hotel near the Place de la Concorde may enjoy the Madeleine Plaza Hotel, the Hotel de Paris, or Les Degres de Notre Dame.
