Day 12 – Place de la Concorde, Paris, France

April 2015

From Arc de Triomphe, we took a metro to Concorde metro station. Alighting from the station it was a short distance to Place de la Concorde. It is one of the major public squares in Paris and is the largest in the French capital. The center of the Place is occupied by a giant Egyptian stone pillar decorated with some sort of ancient Egyptian writing from the reign of the pharaoh Ramesses II.

A gift from the Egyptian to the French.

From across the square, you’ll see Hotel de la Marine, Paris.
