As our travel guide noted, the Champs-Elysees is Paris' most famous boulevard and the backbone of the city. A walk down this famous street is a must! There are a variety of famous shops and cafes, coffee shops, and eateries, including the first ever McDonalds in France and the most profitable one in the world! The flagship store of Louis... More

I visited here on a rainy morning so it was damp and yet still crowded with tourists and selfie sticks. I am glad I visited it (and thought of yhe song) but the weather lowered my impression. Will go back someday on a better day.

I do get that this is Paris' iconic street flanked by Arc on one end and Concorde on the other and leading to Louvre. But it is always too crowded. Restaurants are overcrowded, overpriced and overrated. Stores are spaced far apart and not much different than in any big city. All tourists. Some beggars, otherwise not many Parisians. However, the... More

Lovely, just lovely. Vibrant, alive, so much to see and do. Paris at its best. The architecture, the metro stations, the little postcard kiosks, the shops, the restaurants - quintessential Paris.

A visit to Paris would not be complete without a walk down the Champs. One of the most charming streets in the world, gazing up at the Arch. A walk in history from the Nazi occupation of Paris to its liberation, the Champs played a vital historic roll, as it does as the end point for the Toure-de-France cycling race.... More

I do not think it needs my review. However, if you need a tip to see the street with the famous downhill then uphill view ending with the Arc de Triomphe, then: At the Concorde scquare, just reach the beginning of the Champs Elysee, then cross the street and stop at the middle island then turn and have a look...
