Champs-Elysées, Paris: 32 reviews and 34 photos
Favorite thing: The Champs-Élysées is one of Paris best-known avenues.
It's 1910 meters long and runs from the Obelix to the Arc de Triomphe.
In 1616 Marie de Medici decided to extend of the Tuileries Gardens to the West with an avenue. It took till 1864 till the Avenue des Champs-Élysées growed to about its present length.
The street runs in between the the Grand Palais and the Élysée Palace.
Many high class stores like Adidas, Benetton, the Disney Store, Nike, Zara, Cartier, Bel Air Fashion, Toyota, Gap, Sephora, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Lancel, Guerlain, Lacoste, H&M and Abercrombie & Fitch are located along the avenue and so are many cinema's.
Also the avenue is used as the finish location for de Tour de France cycling race and the anual parade on Bastille Day.
