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.
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 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...
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.
Favorite thing The beautiful Champs Elysees Avenue (with the Arc de Triomphe far ahead).... taken from the middle of it! :-) Hey, you gotta admit I risked my life for you to have this great pic! LOL
Fondest memory I loved to walk from Place de la Concorde all the way to the Arc de Triomphe along the Champs Elysees... it's quiet, the sidewalk is really wide so there's plenty of space to walk peacefully, the views are really nice, and you start finding shops as you approach the Arc and the busier area of the avenue. It's a long walk, mind you, but I really enjoyed it and then I got to make some great pics and do some shopping when I finally arrived to where the action is ;)
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
Fondest memory My fondest memory from my first trip is of the night that we arrived at our hostel (HI hostel Cites de Sciences) and met up with a Canadian girl and two American guys and we all went to listen to one of the guys play bongos in the park (the Cites de Sciences as we later found out) with a bunch of locals. Oh and running out of a department store to get away from some creepy guy from Martinique who wanted to be our 'Paris boyfriends' :)
Fondest memory Oh! Champs Elysees, I felt I was dreaming. I still remember my high school French teacher reading the book and taking us lessons about "Places in Paris" --I always thought "Will I ever see it"? Well, I did. What can I say about Champs Elysees...There's Fashion, Beauty, Different Cultures, Trendy Shops, Cafes, Restaurants, Parks, Memorials, Monuments, Fonts, The Arc du Triomphe, that's all you can see while walking along that wooded long street...And that means a lot, doesn't it?
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.
