The Champs Elysees is the Beverly Hills and Broadway of France, all rolled into one. Here you will see ritzy sidewalk cafes, classy French women walking their poodles, and expensive designer clothing stores. If you are not in a huge rush, this is a great place to take a leisurely 2 kilometer stroll on your way between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc D'Triomphe as there are huge sidewalks lined with leafy trees, French flags, and beauceau people. This street was designed as a city park in the 1660s, but few traces remain of its tranquil beginnings as you will watch the crowds and traffic roaring up and down the street.

Address: Avenue des Champs-Elysées
