Ignoring the historical significance it's just another shopping street with very expensive shops. Lacking individual designer shops, just big brands. Some impressive cars though!

I like the champs-Élysées purely for the car show rooms ie Renault, Peugeot etc. There are better shopping areas in Paris. There is a good Laduree on the Champs-Élysées. Visit once then get on with Paris.

The view of the Arc is nice as is the view towards the Louvre but apart from that there's not much of interest. We visited the day after the murder of a police officer and there was an impromptu memorial - a tragic event so whatever minuscule interest I might have in seeing fancy shops vanished quickly.

Nice street in the Spring, wide spaces, beautiful trees and relaxed pedestrians (even close to the French elections). The place Concorde at one end is nice with its London Eye lookalike and the amazing architecture of the old RAC buildings. Halfway up there is Rue George V, one the most upscale places on the planet. Bargains galore (haha) if your... More

We went up and the down the street a few times although it was always in a taxi or a tour bus; the impression one is given of the street is about luxury shops but it is more than that, it has a range of shops and restaurants with the side after Place de la Concorde tree-lined with grass. Enjoy... More
