Such a wonderful historic Avenue which is very well suited to the end of the Tour De France! It is a beautifully tree lined Ave dotted with restaurants and tourist shops. We walked from the Eiffel Tower to there quite easily stopping off at some beautiful locations along the way including the Little Palace and Cleopatra's Needle. Also a rewarding... More

I've always dreamt of walking along the Champs-Elysees before finally visiting last month, and when I did it was all I expected it to be and more. The experience was made all the more memorable when I ended up purchasing a souvenir for myself at Louis Vuitton's flagship store!

My boys don't shop so I made them come walk down this street with me. We walked about 20-30 minutes and then we're happy to be done. If you love to shop this is for you. It is chalked full of high-end beautiful stores where you can shop to your heart and wallets content.

A must see in Paris. I went there in daylight and also in the evening. During the day it is nice to see the street, it's crowd and if you've been watching the final stage of Tour de France remembering it that this is the street where they ride for about 9 or 10 laps on the last stage of... More

We walked along the Champs Elysees in the evening. It starts at the Place de la Concorde and ends at the Arc de Triomphe. We just ambled along and sat down in one of the many cafes to have dessert. It's a place to watch the world go by. It's very busy and full of people and very commercialized but... More

Les champs Elysees is the biggest street in Paris. Its beautiful with the lights at night and it's also nice to eat on a terrasse there. The walk will lead you to the Arc de triomphe, also a must see in Paris.

Was high on my list of things-to-do and now I can't figure out why. Nice view of the L'Arc de Triomphe but that is all that I found enjoyable about it. Boring stretch of overpriced cafes, typical clothing stores,and beggars. Would never recommend spending your time in Paris here, but to be fair I am not a shopper

the iconic champs-elysees, a "must do" on the list of numerous travellers - up to the arc de triomphe. i didn't find anything special here - all or most shops have branches elsewhere. Crowded with tourists, as was most of Paris; queues extending outside overpriced, average cafes.
