Avenue des Champs-Élysées

Hotels near Avenue des Champs-Élysées, Paris, France .

The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is one of the most famous streets across the world and is considered to be the most beautiful street of the world by the Parisians. In fact, it is known as the La plus belle avenue du monde in France. Its origins can be traced to 1616 when Marie de Medicis decided to create a street flanked by trees on both sides. In 1667, the street was named as “Grand Cours” until the year 1694 when it was renamed as Champs-Elysees, the name derived from Greek mythology where virtuous souls come for rest. Since then, the avenue has gone through several changes and now it stretches for 2 kilometers from the Place de La Concorde with its huge obelisk to the Arc de Triomphe, another landmark in Paris.

The street is lined with theaters, boutiques, souvenir shops for tourists and cafes & restaurants. Rent being extremely high in this location, most cafes and stores are expensive. However, it is worth a stroll from one end of the street to the other end. Just block out the zooming vehicular traffic on the road!

The Avenue is generally brightly lit during celebrations and occasions like Christmas and Bastille Day on the 14th of July every year. Military parades are also conducted on the avenue during Bastille Day. It is also the venue for the awards ceremony of the Tour de France held every July.
