Such a famous street that must be visited to shop or window shop. We walked up one side to the Arc de Triomphe, climbed to the top of that building with its magnificent views, and then walked back down the otherside. As for rest stops there is always a quick trip to McDonalds, if you have kids, or the Nespresso... More

On a beautiful day this boulevard is stunning, its age and history ,nothing short of spectacular {as far as walks go} but it rained and rained while we were there and... its just not the same, still the history as i am so addicted ,warrants an inspired stroll and its remains worthwhile at any time.

Champs Elysees is a great shopping street. Yet, none of the shops offer rest areas. This is absorb. People walk with bags, and while partners shop, they need to wait. If can not wait, they push the partner to finish the shopping... However, a proper rest areas in every shop will encourage longer shopping and people will have time to... More

Well Champs Elysées is no more the place it used to be in the past but if you're visiting Paris for the first time you should immerse into the crowds of this world famous parisian street. It's an interesting walk which begins at the Arc de Triomphe and ends at the Place de la Concorde. The bad news is that... More

I am glad I saw the Champs-Elysees so that I could add it to my list of famous sights I've visited. I was not interested in shopping so did not travel any length on the street, but others were not of the same preference because I could see that the thoroughfare was packed.

We went on this street during the day and also walked during night. It is a very vibrant street and with lot of activities throughout . The LV showroom is a big attraction and also the well manicured trees are a treat to watch. Worth a walk

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
