The Champs-Elysees is grand and certainly worth a stroll on for anyone who has never been to Paris. The Arc de Triomphe is the crown jewel, and such a famous landmark as to not be missed as part of a visit there. But we had been here years before, and found the experience less awe-inspiring this time. Perhaps there were... More

I think it's no longer THE place it used to be. Now it's got H & M, McDonalds, and other not so exciting and original stores and restaurants. But, having said that, it's still interesting to walk the length which is about 3 Km's if I recall. The Arch de Triumph is at the top so you get 2 for... More

a walk to enjoy paris air in the afternoon, I was advised by our friends down the Champ Elysses. This street is very beautiful, a lot of famous brands along the road and pedestrians also seen the established French population.

Nice walk from the Place de la Concorde up to the Arc de Triomphe - may shops and cafes although I can't imagine waiting in line to get into Louis Vuitton or Abercrombie and Fitch. Most are overpriced but if you turn in off the street on occasion, you can find shops that are a bit more moderately priced and... More

I would recommend a walk from opposite the Louvre (there is a smaller triumphal arch there) all the way to the Arc de Triomphe, which was intended as a complete avenue/vista. This takes in the Jardin des Tuileries, the Place de la Concorde and the celebrated Champs Elysees. I found the first parts of the walk the most interesting (though... More

I actually walked the entire street from the Place de la Concorde all the way to the Arc de Triomphe. It was just shops after shops, and should take you about 30-45 mins. If you are not here to shop, there is nothing much to see (besides the famed street itself!) Stop by the Mercedes Benz gallery to check out... More

Take a walk from Place de Concorde to Arc du Triumph. It will take you about half an hour. You may also do some shopping in beautiful, spacious shops.

The street itself is lovely but the shops really can be found anywhere. Worth a walk along, if only because of the setting and what is at each end but it is a pricey place to shop. Paris has so many more and better shopping options; if you want high end try Galleries Lafayette or Place Vendome or cheaper options... More

There are upscale and chain stores along this road. The same goes for the eateries. It is one of those places that we all see on the TV and it's nice to see in person. It is another of those places where you need to be aware of your surroundings. There are beggars, street sellers and pick pockets. Just be... More
