As a first time traveller in Paris staying in Madeleine, this attraction was slightly over rated in my expectations. It was very commercial and had a few things to see apart from if you are there to shop. We walked from the Arc de Triomphe all the way to the end of the Avenue and this was a long long... More

You have to walk down the Champs-Elysees at least once when you are in Paris, walking down the tree lines streets towards the Arc De Triumphe was such a magically experience. There are lots of regular shops and some very expensive places as you would expect, and it can get very busy, especially up towards the Arc

A good stroll up and down this avenue is recommended for shopping, sight-seeing and eating and watching the world go by. Only criticism would be it's pricey to eat and drink because it's touristy. Order accordingly perhaps.

Maybe the Champs-Élysées was awesome 20 years ago, but we found it crowded with people and all the shops I could find back home. The first shop I saw was Banana Republic...I have one of those 10 minutes down the road. That being said, if you're in Paris and have the time, you mind as well check it out. If... More

A fantastic area and exciting to be there with young children. But a real lack of WC and public facilities in the entire area. Not sure what the tourism officials are thinking.

Everyone talks about the Champs-Elysees, I just thought it looked like a wide street with loads of shops, not a lot to do really.

It's the main street in Paris and has a very NYC feel to it. Plenty of great restaurants and bars to people watch from. Cool pop up stores everywhere to visit as well. On your way to Champs however, beware of the scamming "Deaf and Dumb Society" pick pocketers. My girlfriend and I almost fell for it but thankfully walked... More

A must see location to visit while in Paris. If you're frustrated with the lack of wifi in the area you can pick up on the free signal near the McDonald's

Champs-Élysées serves it purpose of allowing people to move from Point A to Point B, but that is all that I see it as. I do not understand why people see it is a tourist attraction and why it is held in such esteem. There are so many great shops and boutiques that can only be found in Paris. Wouldn't... More
