A prestigious boulevard in Paris surrounded by cafés, theaters and shops, Champs-Élysées is admired for its scenic and symmetrically aligned chestnut trees.
Paris is known for its great architecture and wide boulevards, thanks to Baron Haussmann who headed a massive renovation of Paris back in the day. The street plan and distinctive appearance of central Paris today is largely the result of Haussmann’s renovation. The 1.9 KM long avenue runs through the 8th arrondissement, from Place de la Concorde to Place Charles de Gaulle, the location of the Arc de Triomphe.
How to get there
There are various Line 1 métro stations you can choose from as your point of exit, but I would suggest you choose the farthest one so you have the chance to see everything. From farthest to Arc Triomphe itself: Champs-Élysées – Clemenceau, Franklin D. Roosevelt, George V and Charles de Gaulle – Étoile.
