Facts about the Champs Elysees
“Au Soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à Minuit, il y a tout ce Que Vous voulez, Aux Champs Elysées!” meaning “Rainy or shiny, midday or midnight, there is everything you want here, at the Champs Elysees”. This is one of the most famous songs by the French singer Joe Dassin, who sings about a love story, which takes place on this avenue.
Champs-Élysées is no doubt, the most famous avenue in Paris. It begins at the Place de la Concorde and makes its way up to the Arc de Triomphe.
Andre Le Nôtre created this avenue in 1667 as an extension of the Jardins des Tuileries. Elysian fields, the English version of the Champs Elysées, is a reference to the time when the area was a real field. Jacques Hittorf laid out the formal gardens, which line the avenue, in 1838. In the XIX century, the gardens of the Champs Elysées were really famous, attracting many artists inspired by the beauty of the flowers and fountains.
In the 19th century, the Champs-Élysées was a fashionable avenue where the rich used to stroll and the wealthy built their homes. Today the Champs-Élysées has become a broad avenue with numerous stores, cafes and restaurants.
No trip to Paris would be complete without a stroll around the most famous avenue in Paris, the Champs Elysées. The avenue des Champs Elysées is, indeed, the most beautiful avenue in the world. All you need here is shopping and eateries, plus sights along and on the sides like the Grand and Petit Palais, the place de la Concorde, and of course the Arc de Triomphe.Maÿlis
