Even if shopping is not your scene it is something you should do when in Paris. There is a wide variety of fashion shops and great places to eat and for the motor enthusiast there were even Mercedes etc showrooms where you could see some of their exotic cars and buy some merchandise too which was surprisingly reasonably priced.

I enjoyed the ride up the Champs-Elysees from our bus tour. It's a beautiful street with the view of the Arc de Triomphe. We decided to get out and walk around. It was very crowded and hard to maneuver through the people. We had a glass of champagne and relaxed at a bar. The wait staff was very friendly and... More

I don't really like shopping and there were plenty of other things we wanted to see on our day in the Capital. We did venture from the Arc down for a while looking at watches we couldn't afford and picking up some gifts to take home. If you like shopping it must be a must though! It was a bit... More

strolling around Champs-Elysees get you double gratification. aside from all the shopping you get to see all the beautiful and historic buildings of Paris. From the arch to the Pyramides... bit pricey Though.

The perfect walk. Starting in Place de La Concorde, and finishing in the Arc de Triomphe. Simply spectacular. On your way you can stop in LaDuree and have a hot chocolate with macaroons. You can see le Petit Palais and le Grand Palais at your left, beautiful gardens, fountains, and all the shops. It takes about 1:30 hrs, if done... More

They have everything on this street! Shops, restaurants, souvenirs, coffee shops and cafes, etc. Felt safe, fun to explore and tour, and lots of selections. Interesting to see the high-end designer places (Gucci, Louis Vuitton, etc.), and the $30,000 rolex watches. Definitely check this out if you are going to be in Paris.

The street is attractive and some nice shops but too many criminals looking for an easy mark. The scammers and muggers are the most aggressive I have ever seen and I didn't feel safe at all.

Although this is one of the most expensive shopping strips in the world, there is still something for everyone - with cheaper clothing stores and food outlets. Take the time to stroll and window shop. It costs nothing to browse!

The Champs Élysées is a must-see in Paris. Expensive, yes, but there are plenty of smaller and cheaper things to buy if you look. The shops are interesting, and the large department stores are beautiful. There are plenty of cafés so you can people-watch and they are not all expensive. If you are on a strict budget, then go down... More
