Stroll on the most beautiful avenue in the world
The Champs-Élysées is quite simply the most beautiful avenue in the world. Synonymous with exceptional buildings and luxury boutiques, the Champs-Élysées stretches from Place de la Concorde to Place Charles-de-Gaulle. The counter alleys (the Champs-Élysées promenade) allow you to walk along the gardens arranged in squares. This is where we find the Elysee Palace or the Grand Palace. The upper part is the kingdom of luxury brands, high places of entertainment such as the Lido, cafes and restaurants that have made the reputation of the avenue.
When this Parisian artery was created, the district was not very famous. It was not until the 19th century that the Champs-Élysées acquired their letters of nobility. Since then, all major French events take place or are celebrated on the Champs-Élysées as a parade on July 14. On December 31, the Champs-Élysées, also known for its holiday lights, was transformed into a pedestrian route attracting hundreds of thousands of people.
