Metro: Concorde or Tuileries

Jardin des Tuileries / Concorde

The Tuileries are the gardens and park directly west of the Louvre.

There is a neat view from the Louvre towards the Arch. You should walk from the Louvre to the Arch de Triomphe at least once. Do not confuse the small Arch du Carousel which is right in the garden with the much larger Arche de Triomphe. Along the walk, at the opposite end of the gardens from the Louvre is a roundabout called Place Concorde. This used to be the area where all of the public executions by Guilitone were done. Now there is an obelisque that was given to the French by the Egyptians. The interesting thing about the Obelisque is that on the base is a diagram showing how it was removed from Egypt and put up at it's present location. It is worth stopping here just to watch the traffic. It is unbelievable. There is no fine for jaywalking except certain death.
