Well-known av des Champs-Elysees begins to the east from place de la Concorde. Now it is the central highway of Paris. That means "paradise fields " as elisium means in Greek "paradise".
The continuation of gardens Tuileries avenues for Maria Medici was planted there. In 1667 Lenotre began their expansion to the west. In the end of the XVIII century the avenue was prolonged up to pl. d'Etoil (now - pl. Charles de Gaulle).
In 1840 the mourning procession passed with a body of Napoleon through the avenues. The length of the prospectus is about two kilometers. Offices of the large companies, restaurants and cafe, firm shops settle down on both sides of the prospectus.
