The Champs Elysées exudes an air of glamour and elegance, reflecting the glory and spirit of France. The street stretches for a distance of eight kilometres through the heart of Paris and is lined with lush greenery, stores, famous landmarks, theatres, cinemas, restaurants and cafés.
The avenue runs from the Place de la Concorde to the Place Charles de Gaulle, where the Arc de Triomphe is located.
The distinctive nature of this Parisian avenue has also made it one of the most expensive real estate venues in Europe. The Champs Elysées was originally nothing but a vast field area in Paris. In the year 1616 Marie de Medics chose to create a tree lined pathway through the fields. Over the years, the street has been redesigned many times. Many of Paris's major celebrations and festivals are held here.
