A late afternoon promenade down the Champs Elysees is Paris at its best. Anchored by the Arc de Triomphe, this is the most famous street in Paris, and one of the most famous in the world. Here you can find some of France's most celebrated brands, such as Louis Vuitton. Even if you cannot afford the products in these stores, this is window shopping at its finest. The Champs Elysees is a great place to stretch your legs after a long flight, or sit on a bench and read the newspaper as the sun sets behind the Arc de Triomphe.
It is easily reached by metro as the Arc de Triomphe sits above an immense metro station.
