Place de la Concorde, Paris. In the center, the grand obelisk that Napoleon brought back from his Egyptian campaign. Its twin, known as "Cleopatra's Needle" can be found in New York's Central Park. Simply Amazing!
The Place de la Bastille is a square in Paris, where the Bastille prison stood until the 'Storming of the Bastille' and its subsequent physical destruction between 14 July 1789 and 14 July 1790 during the French Revolution; no vestige of it remains.
Place des Vosges - The oldest planned square in Paris and often overlooked by tourists, the courtyard is filled with greenery and fountains and surrounded by red brick buildings which form a covered arcade to shelter strollers. Shop, drink, dine or just hang out with a view of this hidden gem of a garden.
