Even if you are American (which I'm not) and are used to wide roads, you can't help but be impressed by the sheer width of the Champs-Elysees. Especially when you consider that it is in the middle of an old city which typically have much more narrow roads.

The Champs-Elysees starts at the Arc de Triomphe and heads outwards. The pavements are also very wide and are full of cafes, cinemas and shops. It is one of THE places to be seen (or to own an establishment) in Paris, and has huge numbers of designer stores and 5 star hotels along it.

A good way to see the street is to take the Metro to Franklin D Roosevelt and then stroll up towards the Arc de Triomphe.

Address: Metro Franklin D Roosevelt
