This is a famous street with many branded shops. If you are someone who likes to buy branded stuff, this is your kind of place. In the day, you could see that it is a very crowded place and I would agree that buying local brands here (including the tax refund) (eg. Chanel, LV) is so much cheaper than buying... More

We loved Paris but this one place was a huge disappointment. Full of tourists spending their money at places you could easily visit at any average mall.... over priced... cafes are terrible.... do not focus your visit to Paris (or ruin it) around this area. I felt like I was at Disneywold.

On my second trip to Paris I was again astonished by this broad avenue. It is grand not only in size but in the sheer pleasure of people watching, checking out ridiculously posh auto show rooms and eating Hagen Das from a store that carries nothing but. Paris is a walking cit and you can really see it on Champs-Élysées.

Definitely walk along thing avenue when heading to the Arch. There is a lot of shopping and food to be had. It is very busy though so you have to watch where you walking. A lot of shops around that resemble what we have in the US and a few that you need some serious cash. If you want to... More

Honestly, if your budget is like most people, you won't buy that much. But there are some cheap shops too, and half the experience is just about walking down the street. Expensive food though.

A nice strolling avenue, very fashionable. Too hot during a summer's day, more pleasant in the evening. Shops are beautiful, yet they are way too expensive. Cafes and restaurants are obviously very expensive and very touristic, but... in spite of the above, a must, especially close to Arc de Triumphe and the opposite side, close to Tullery Gardens with the...

I loved my experience at the Champs-Elysees. I couldn't afford anything in the stores, but I loved the atmosphere. We ate a leisurely lunch in a street cafe and strolled down the street while people watching (my favorite thing.) The weather was amazing in September and the tree-lined street was just beautiful!

This is the paradise for any shopping lover (Remember to bring your wallet or purse), all of high class shops can be find here, from Louis Vuitton to Tag Heuer and others... It is preferable to spend the afternon-evening walking and watching the crowd passing by. Nice place to roam around in Paris.

Fantastic experience for keen cyclists, recommend the views from the arc de triumphe able to see the riders coming up the champs as well as around the arc and back down. The teams also complete a lap of honour for photos after presentations
