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.

I expected it to be more glamorous or at least more scenic but it's just a street with trees on either side

We started at the Arche and found it interesting to see all of the expensive shops and hallmark stores, but our children were not impressed with window shopping. You could rent a Lamborghini for the right price and take a spin around Paris which was also interesting. If your on a tight timeline skip this one and hit the museums... More

We (me and my wife) visited Paris during Holiday Season, owing to which it was BEAUTIFULLY lit, it was so happening being there as you could see the whole street lit up magnificently and X-Mas market was the apple of the eye

Shopping street, find the usual designer shops by the side of the roads. Number of restaurants around but if you cannot read and speak English you are in a bit of fix ...as most of the restaurant are in in French. Also you can see the great monuments.

This is a great avenue of the world and is not to be missed! Approach the great Arch and savor a slow walk. There are shops on the way to visit if you like. If at all possible, go up into the Arch and view the Champs-Elysees and Paris from the air. The view is spectacular!
