And… Here is one of the most famous street of the world.. This street inspires many songs..
Read this post accompanying by Aux Champ Elysee-Joe Dassin 🙂
Concorde Square is at the one end and Arc De Triomphe is on the other end of Champs Elysees. The lenght of the street is 1,5 miles approximately. There are many famous and luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co and stores, restaurants and cafes. The Lido which is a famous nightclub is also on this street.
This is a boulevard that has witnessed many important events in the past. Such as the celebration of the liberation of Paris during World War II, the French National Day celebrations every year on July 14 etc..
Champs Elysees is lighted every year in December. The opening of this lighting is made by French celebrities such as Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, Lara Fabian, Monica Belucci or Vanessa Paradis.
This is a very nice street. But don’t make your expectations so high. Because this street is not most beautiful place in Paris according to my opinion. But of course you are in Paris. This is absolutely enough for your good mood . Parisien taxies, your steps taken by the happiness of being Paris on the sidewalk, and Aysam♥♥ 🙂 .. And last one, the rain which is occasionally violent.. But we do not complain about the rain even a moment..
