I was kind of disappointed from the oh so famous Champs. It reminded me NYC's fifth avenue with much less fancy stores. Wide avenue with mostly mid range shopping. Except a big Louis Vuitton. Since there's fantastic shopping everywhere in the city, this was just OK.

We did the hop on hop off bus tour. Worth it! Great shopping and a wonderful view. Bathrooms cost, so bring your change and be prepared to use portable lavatories. Cramped, but you can deal. Very magical especially during the night bus tour (for Le Tours you cannot get off at night which is the safest choice).

We went at Christmas and it was beautiful. Especially at night. The Christmas market was huge. It was also easy to find your way around. Loads of high street shops. Also plenty of places to eat.

This is the main street in Paris and is full from side to side of shops. It stretches for quite a distance and takes a bit of time to walk through. At one end is the Place de la Concorde and the other is the Arc de Triomphe. It is worth spending some time walking down the boulevard and looking... More

Champs-Elysees is definitely the heart of the city, next to famous landmarks (such as Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe), lots of cafes, restaurants and stores.

Great street to walk on for shopping or just for walking.Have expensive and moderate brands.Does not have great variety of Restaurants especially Vegetarian.Lot of beggars and be very careful of crowds as there are many pickpockets in Paris after your purse or phones.

Traveled down this boulevard both during the day & night. The Christmas markets were booming. Of course, the night visit was spectacular. Really wished we had the opportunity to walk part of it. But, just a coach tour. The place was packed both day & night. Lots of carnival attractions & shops galore.

This famous street is just an ordinary street,nothing fascinating about it. I found the normal neighborhoods like Le Marais and Latin quarter are more appealing with their graceful streets and exquisite buildings.

It is definitely an amazing avenue, with fantastic perspective, beautiful pavements where people from all over the world come walking. Many shops but mainly for tourist with tourist prices, many restaurant and cinemas. Being there don't miss the vice of triumphal arch going on its roof, access if from underground at the top of Champs Elysées. In winter there are... More
