There is everything you want, and more, on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées...
The Avenue des Champs-Elysées, nicknamed "the most beautiful avenue in the world", is a must-see during your stay in Paris. In summer and winter alike, the Champs-Elysées avenue comes alive with passers-by, Parisians and tourists who like to stroll along it at all hours. At the end, the Arc de Triomphe is one of the most emblematic symbols of Paris. Book your visit to admire the panoramic view from the top. Along the avenue, there are shops such as Sephora, Fnac or Abercrombie and luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Guerlain or even the Ferrari showroom. It is also the ideal place for a refined gourmet break: sit down at the mythical Fouquet's, at the brasserie l'Alsace or taste the famous Ladurée pastries. Near the Place de la Concorde, the Grand and Petit Palais will delight culture lovers. The Jardins des Champs-Elysées, the Théâtre Marigny and the Théâtre du Rond Point are also located at this end of the avenue.Check your calendar before your stay: the avenue is used every year as a backdrop for major events such as the 14 July parade or the arrival of the Tour de France!Closer still, the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, which runs parallel to the Champs-Elysées, extends for more than two kilometres. This very chic street is lined with 18th and 19th century private mansions that sometimes house embassies such as the British Embassy. The Elysée Palace and the Beauvau Hotel, the seat of the Minister of the Interior, are also located on this street. There are also palaces, luxury boutiques and art galleries. At the end, on the Rue Royale side, don't miss the Madeleine church, known for its columns and neoclassical architectural style.
On the first Sunday of each month, stroll along the Champs-Elysées without worrying about cars. On this occasion, the avenue is reserved for pedestrians and cyclists, as is the arrondissement of Paris Centre which includes the former 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th arrondissements. On the same days, some museums such as the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d'Orsay or the Quai Branly are free.
