Classic Car Tours - Departure Point
Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris. It's also one of the most historically important; during the French revolution, the square was named Place de la Révolution, and it hosted the beheading of figures including King Louis XVI, Queen Marie Antoinette, and the revolutionary leader Maximilien Robespierre.
The 23 meter obelisk that stands in the middle of the square once marked the entrance to the Luxor Temple. Glorifying the reign of the pharaoh Rameses II, it was a gift from Muhammad Ali (Viceroy of Egypt). The square also plays host to the end of France's annual military parade down the Champs Elysées, commemorating the storming of the Bastille.
Our Classic Cars tours leave from the east edge of the square. You can locate your driver just in front of the exit from the Tuileries Gardens. The distinctive 2CV cars are easy to spot.
