“Not sure why this is so famous”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This is a street to the Arc de Triomphe with large gravel walk ways on both sides of the street. There are little parks, but mostly it's shopping. It was very crowded and I wasn't that impressed.

“Great place to walk around day or night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I love this area in the day or night. While many other cities have streets lined with high end designer shops, the buildings on the Champs Élysées are beautiful. The stores are worth going into even if you have no intention to shop. I particularly recommend the large Louis Vuitton museum and also checking out nearby Rue Montague.

“Amazing Christmas market!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The reason we went to Paris was to come to the Christmas market here, and it really was as amazing as we had read online.

There were so many stalls lined up, very festive, great choice of things to buy and lots of stalls to eat. We got loads of little presents for people.

They had a huge ice rink which (which we didn't use at neither of us can skate) but it looked pretty awesome from what we saw with different fake animals all around the long rink.

We had a look at the shops here too (not just the market) and they were pretty impressive, very high end, and if I had known about these shops I would have made a bigger budget, but they were lovely just to look around.

Truly wonderful, even though it rained on the second evening we visited, it was still so magical. I would go back to this Christmas market again, it was amazing!

“Champs-Élysées”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Lovely during the day but amazing at night. Diamonds and Rubies amazing. Worth the long walk and crowd manageable.

“Definitely work a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Lots and Lots of shops which goes hand in hand with lots and lots of people. I went just after christmas and they still had Christmas markets. They had a lot of fresh cheeses, macrons, strawberries dipped in chocolate. They have a christmas ice skating rink, clothes, jewelry. Definitely worth a look. It was one of my favourite things in Paris. If you need the toilet I would suggest McDonalds. Be warned that the toilets are flithy. There is a guy who will direct you into the toilets. Very big line.
