    Favorite thing: Go to the tourist information on Champs Elise thei have a lot of books to give you .

    A lot of discount you can reach here.

    Be patience and wait for your turn ,and you can see what people asking for ;they don't speak english well and don't ofer to you you have to ask for :(.
    I waited aside and listen what people asking for ;and reach a BEAUTIFUUL book about gardens in Paris "Le G'ardens do Paris".A must.

    Champ Elysee

    Favorite thing: This is along 'Champs Elysee', considered to be one of the most famous avenue in the world. Going around Paris to discover the city itself is quite interesting. Fashion, luxury shops is one o the best highlights in Paris, I guess these is more typical for women...shop...an shop...for those who can afford this pricy parisian city. All well cafes and restaurant can be seen here.

    Favorite thing: Stop at the Grand arche and walk down champs elysee-the most famous avenue
    Arc de Triomphe
    Place Charles de Gaulle, 75008 Paris
    MCharles de Gaulle-Etoile
    Charles de Gaulle-Etoile
    The Arch is most easily (and safely) reached by tunnel from the north side of the Champs Elysées.

    Favorite thing: Paris Champs Elysees Avenue song?:
    'Aux Champs-Elysees, a midi ou a minuit,au soleil ou sous la pluie on trouve tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysees'(Joe Dassin)
    Everyone knows this famous song because its words are the truth: C'EST LA PLUS BELLE AVENUE DU MONDE

    Fondest memory: I was lucky to see the finish of Tour de France on Champs-Elysees. It was so crowdy so people even climbed on a roof!

    Favorite thing: Visit Chammps D'Elysee and walk along the streets, also you must explore by riding Metro, getting off on various stops and just exploring the area. There are metro stations everwhere to get you back if you get lost and very easy to navigate

    Fondest memory: Just exploring the area and visitng stores, looking at the beautiful architecture, and residential streets, eating at the restaurants along the way, all was quite pleasant.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are so much things to see and make in Paris.

    For that, there is a very interesting site: www.cityvox.com

    It is very complete and you will be able to seek your program with your own way.

    Then I leave you your own choice.

    Fondest memory: One of my best memories was than as of my arrival at the Station of
    Lyon and right after having been to pose my business, I made in
    entirety the descent of the Champs-Elysés since the Place de l'Etoile to the Tuileries.

    There one took a small pause then we completly went up by the other side of the street.

    You will say to me can be that it too is not tiring, but try to do it at least once by making each gallery, each window...

    by delon Updated Aug 25, 2002

    Favorite thing: Paris is a lovely city to be in. The atmosphere, the people it's enjoyable. Besides there are dozens of monuments and structures which will definitely steal a glance from you. Don't miss : Eiffel tower, Arc de triomphe, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, Louvre Museum, La defense, Musee d'orsay.

    Fondest memory: Going to the top of the Eiffel tower was certainly the best experience. A splendid view of Paris awaits you atop the Eiffel tower. I also enjoyed strolling along Champs Elysees towards the Arc de Triomphe, did an awful lot of shopping there.

    by SilverVelvet Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The main tourist information office sits on the Champs D'Elycees in the shadow of the Arch D'Triumphe. Visitors who plan to visit Versaille, the museums and monuments can purchase a museum card there because they're not available at the museums. The museum card is one of those 'pay-one-price-and-ride-all-the-ride' cards that is valid for one, two, three or five consecutive days. Plan the days carefully as many museums are often free one day per month (Often the first Sunday) and sometimes there can be a strike at the Louvre (This happened during one trip). Not only can the card be financially practical for museum hoppers, but holders can also enter Versaille, the Louvre, etc. through a special entrance which is a blessing when several hundred people are waiting to enter Versaille during peak hours. In addition, the card includes a booklet that describes each of about 30 museums and monuments that honor the card. Many of the smaller museums are very deserving and make for some great off-the-beaten-path visits.

    Favorite thing: Champs-Élysées et Arche du Triomphe - the avenue is a 2 kilometre long stretch of mainly expensive shops and restaurants: at its end you'll find the Arche du Triomphe (see picture, which you can climb to reach the top). From there you see the star-shaped original lay-out of the city.

    by lukec Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Stroll down the Chapms Elysees, one of world's most celebrated avenues. If one thing embodies the grandeur of Paris it's the Champs with Arc de Triomphe at one end, and the royal Louvre at the other. People come here day and night, to get the feeling of the city and join in the colorful conglomeration of people that come here, natives and tourists alike.

    Fondest memory: Sitting in a cafe on Champs Elysees with Irena the night before our departure to the Netherlands and drinking a cold Heineken. We afforded that luxury just for the heck of it but it did cost us alot, so I don't recommend it as everyday activity, if you're backpacking like we were. You must remember that everything along Champs Elysees is very expensive.

    Favorite thing: For me to enter my single most important activity or site is impossible! I loved everything about Paris, the atmosphere, the sights including Sacre Coeur, Eiffel Tower, the River Seine, Pompidou, Notre Dame, Louvre, Obelisque, the Grande Arche, the beautiful Arc De Triomph, the food and drink and of course the people.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory of Paris, was walking down the Champs Elysees finding a shop, buying lunch - fresh bagettes with ham & cheese, chocolate eclairs and a bottle of red wine, sitting on a bench with my friends and enjoying the wonderful lunch as we watched Paris go on by....Heaven

    by santax Updated Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go to the Champs-Ellysees, mainly to take a picture of the Arch of Triumph. Then go down the avenue to shop or have coffee at the cafes. This is a very 'American' place (it kind of reminds me of 5th Ave in New York with its stores, cars speeding by, etc.), so you won't see anything very unique to the French here but it's still a nice place to relax, shop, and drink.

    Fondest memory: CHAMPS-ELYSÉES BY NIGHT

    This famed avenue is no longer the widest in the world as it used to be but is nevertheless spectacular. During the day you can marvel at the buildings lining the avenue or join in the shopping spree in the shops and department stores at the most prestigious location in the city. As the night falls here's the view you can get with ARC DE TRIOMPHE in the background.

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walk along the Champ Elysees and walk towards the Arc de Triumph. You'll notice that all the traffics from all directions are converging to this monument. This monument was built by Napoleon as a triumphal arch dedicated to the glory of the Imperial army.The names of many soldiers are inscribed on the walls. You can climb to the top for views. Be careful when you are crossing from the monument to the other side of the road ( Champ_Elysees), traffic is terrible. At night, the scenery is fantastic when the monument is lighted especially looking from afar.
