We were there in December and was able to enjoy the lights of this beautiful avenue along with the many kiosks selling their arts and crafts and local foods.A stroll along the avenue (a good walk) is a mental relaxation. We would repeat it again.

Between the Place de la Concorde and the L'Arc de Triomphe lies one of not only France , but arguably Europe's most iconic street - The Avenue des Champs-Élysées. At over 1 mile in length and carrying 8 lanes of traffic, this place is a sight to behold. Some of the most iconic names in consumerism are located on Champs-Élysées... More

Champs Elysees is a boulevard which leads to the Arc De Triomphe. It is a lovely road lined with top designer shops and some nice restaurants. We also saw some street plays and performances on our way. Nice for a leisurely walk in Paris.

It's so easy to find negative opinion of the Champs-Elysees. Well, it's not what it used to be; It's boring; It's touristy; It's over-commercialized, etc, etc.. Well, heck. It's not the most delightful thing to see in Paris, I guess, and I suppose I personally have a difficult time finding something in Paris I DON'T like. But a stroll down... More

We walked from the Arc de Triumph to the Louvre, it was long but very pleasant. Expensive shops along the way. You had to pay to use the toilets everywhere.

For first-time visitors to Paris, this is an interestingly busy street to visit. It's full of shops (many chains), car dealers, places to eat and on weekends, lots of teens and 20-somethings! The Champs-Elysees's "hub" is the Arc de Triumph, a definate must-visit. If you're in shape, consider a climb up inside to the top of the monument to experience... More

Very expensive street of various shops. Very nice to walk around and see all the high end retailers as well as expensive cars parked.

I wouldn't rave, i mean its just a street after all. At one end theres the Eye and at the other is the Arc. Both visible which is pretty cool. Shopping galore. Middle end to high end. Christmas stalls were erect so we got to do some shopping at the market stalls at the Eye end of Champs Elysees.
