Champs-Elysées Shopping (Self Guided), Paris

The Champs-Elysées is one of the world's most famous avenues, a huge tree-lined boulevard with some of the best shopping and dining in the city as well as beautiful architecture. First to the shops, and here you will be able to purchase clothes from many of the world's leading designers.

The place to go for haute couture is the triangle d'or, the area around Avenue Montaigne, Ave George V, and Rue Francois 1er. Don’t just confine your shopping trip to the main strip, because there are many fine boutiques in the streets around the Champs-Elysées. Take some time to appreciate the area’s architectural gems. Crowning the western end of the boulevard is the Arc de Triomphe, which honors those who fought for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Engraved on its stonework are the names of famous generals. Among the other architectural highlights are the Place de la Concorde, a magnificent public square with statues and fountains and surrounded by grand buildings.

Come back to the Champs-Elysées at night to dine in some of the best restaurants in Paris. Then catch a cabaret show at such lively entertainment venues as the Lido and Crazy Horse. As you make your way back to your hotel, stop to throw admiring glances at the Arc de Triomphe, brilliantly illuminated against the night sky.
