Les Champs Elysées

Metro : Charles de Gaulle - Etoile

champs elysees Considered by many the most beautiful in the world, the avenue of the Champs-Elysées is an immense and prestigious artery, its footpaths crammed with people from all over the world at all times of the day or night. Stretching from the Arc de Triomphe down to the Tuilerie Gardens the Champs-Elysées is a pleasure to descend on foot, the northern footpath being the preferred side to do so. Luxury stores such as Louis Vuitton, cinemas, famous restaurants (Fouquet’s, Le Nôtre), grand automobile showrooms (Mercedes, Peugeot, Citroen), the perfumery Guerlain, the Paris Office of Tourism (no. 127), Virgin Megastore, the Disney and Swatch Stores all exist side-by-side here on the world’s most expensice avenue. Traditionally reserved for the prestigious military marches of July 14, the Champs-Elysées has become the preferred location for spontaneous nighttime gatherings, a trend started after France’s win in the 1998 World Cup, when hundreds of thousands took to the street here to celebrate. Similar numbers can be found here each New Years’ Eve, despite the cold, when cars are banned and revelers come together embracing and drinking champagne to ring in the New Year.
