We took the tour bus up the avenue, its a bustling shop filled road, very pretty with trees and buildings.

A must when you visti Paris, one way is may be 2 or 3 km long. Very luxurious shop on the street, pricey, fancy, very Parisian. It was very nice to see and feel it.

I was so excited to finally say that I've walked the Champs-Élysées (insert my faux Parisian accent). I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to find stores that I could actually afford to shop in. I even waited in line to window shop at the flagship Louis Vuitton store and it was worth the wait! I even found a... More

This famous avenue is still charming after all these years and kept very clean by the city of Paris. There is a nice mixture of shops and vendors for window shopping and "real" shopping. Some nice little cafes/restaurants with outdoor seating also available and surprisingly not that expensive considering where you are. As our hotel was close by we wandered... More

Is it worth the time?...you decide, it trades on it's name, it's become over rated, there are many many more beautiful streets / areas in Paris.

PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE YOUR MONEY THERE. I went and changed 50 pounds and got exactly 50 euro back. And when I asked why, the money changer insisted that it was for "commission". I told her I wanted my money back and did not want to change it anymore but she refused. I told her I would call the cops... More

You wander around here. You shop, have drink, ice cream, but I wouldn't suggest for one minute you look to stay here or eat in the evening. Everyone thinks this is the place to be... it is a place to see... but stay somewhere else like Notre Dame or Ile St Louis and come and wander here. It's the high... More

No good trip to Paris is complete without a little visit to the Champs-Élysées! Of course, the shops and restaurants along this beautiful avenue are very luxurious and incredibly pricey, so don't expect to do a lot of shopping there if you're travelling on a budget (as I was), but the avenue itself is worth the detour. We stopped for... More

A lovely street to have a stroll down, however unless you are loaded, shopping on this street may be out of the question. It is beautiful to look up the street and see the Arch.

This section of Paris is one of the places you MUST see. The German army marched here when they took over France and the French people celebrated here when the Allied forces liberated Paris. It is a great place to people watch while sitting in an outside cafe (which is likely expensive). Be sure to explore the side streets as... More
