You can't experience Paris without spending an hour or so walking up and down the Champs-Elysees, Undoubtedly the busiest street in Paris, it bubbles over with wealth, fashion, fine dining, embassies and consulates and people of every size, shape and age. It's an experience!

This street, possibly the most famous and prestigious street in the world, takes on a whole different look and personality at Christmas. The trees are lit up for the whole length of it, from the Arc de Triomphe all the way to Place de Concorde. And where the shops end, booths are set on both sides of the street, selling... More

just start at the Arc, walk down one side, up to the end, indulge in Gucci, cross it, and walk up to the Arc. There are shops of all sorts, both expensive and cheap. Do not miss getting into Monoprix, where there are bargains, and good foie gras in the supermarket section downstairs. Be careful at Fnac, because most of... More

Loved the Christmas markets on the Champs Elysee. Went in the evening about 8pm,plenty of room to visit the stalls, some very unusual wares on sale,prices reasonable. Go on the Paris wheel at the Place de la Concorde end. Open until about 10pm

The white bungalows line thre streets and are stuffed with unique gifts. The food was amazingly good. Sausages, cheeses, wine, beer, all either hot or cold, are everywhere. Do not miss this. It was a beautiful, sunny saturday in december. Truly magical.

Walked from the Arc de Triomphe towards the Grand Palais area on a Sunday evening. We would have kept going towards the Ferris Wheel but the rain was coming down hard and walking through the crowds sharing an umbrella proved difficult. The lights in the trees turned on after 5 pm which was very nice. We walked into two automobile... More

If you visit Paris you will most likely take a walk on Champs-Elysees. It is a modern shopping street just like any city in the world these days. It is architecturally / aesthetically quite pleasing. Most time it is crowded.

If you’ve been to Fifth Avenue, Las Ramblas or South Beach, don’t feel you must add the Champs-Elysees to your been-there/done-that checklist. Even in late November, it was packed with tourists, hucksters and beggars. We came close to tripping over one woman who was stretched out lengthwise across the pavement with her hand draped dramatically over her face as the... More

Went to Paris in November 2014. I believe November is the best time to see Paris. The Champs-Elysees' bottom half was decked out with White Christmas Market Stalls and Christmas decorations. I suggest you do the hop-on-hop-off bus tour first to see from a bird's eye view of all iconic places and buildings in Paris especially The Champs-Elysees as it... More
