Avenue des Champs-Élysées

De l'Arc de Triomphe à la place de la Concorde - 75008 Paris Champs-Élysées

The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is reserved for pedestrians, cyclists ... each first Sunday of the month, consistent with free entry for all the numerous museums in Paris and the Ile-de-France region.



From 9 June 2016, free Wi-Fi is available on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

Frequently described as ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Paris must-see. Tourists and Parisians can be spotted strolling at any time of day or night and at any time of year along this iconic two-kilometre stretch between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe. Like the Eiffel Tower, the avenue is a symbol of Paris. It is lined with restaurants, luxury boutiques (Louis Vuitton, Mont-Blanc, Guerlain, Ferrari etc.), flagship stores (Sephora etc.) and nightclubs. It is also the setting each year for major events such as the Bastille Day military parade, the arrival of the Tour de France and the Christmas lights. Finally, the Avenue des Champs-Elysées has some of the top museums in Paris: the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Palais de la Découverte and the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton. From 12 March 2019, the fountains at the roundabout of the Champs-Elysées have rediscovered their magic thanks to the Bourroulec brothers and their six 13 m bronze and glass creations. Round off your visit by climbing all the way to the top of the Arc de Triomphe for a spectacular view of Paris!
