Seeing it from the top of the Arc was enough...no real need to walk down it. There was a Christmas village set up that was full of vendors, etc. Felt very touristy. If you have limited time in Paris, this is something you could skip in my opinion.

It is great to walk down the Champs Élysées from the Arc de Triomphe to the place de la Concorde to see the Christmas decorations and the Christmas market. You can enjoy all year long a drink or a meal and go shopping. On July 14th you can see the "défilé " and celebrate the French national day.

Stroll down the sidewalks at night to see the beautiful lights....and people watching. The Christmas Fair runs for blocks with food, toys, gifts and decorations. A fun walk before heading to a restaurant for a hot meal to warm up.

This is a nice walk in general. This time of year they have a huge Christmas Market running up and down both sides with lots of great food and drink, and shopping.

I don't think i've ever seen such a long road which feels like it never ends. We went in December and its some sight to see the Christmas markets lining the entire length almost, simply awesome! I would suggest taking a leisurely stroll down at your own pace browsing the Christmas stalls.
