Champs-Elysees

Champs-Elysees pictures. Champs-Élysées is probably the most well-known avenue of the world: it runs in Paris from Napoleon's Arc de Triomphe (Triumphal Arch) all the way to the Louvre (to be more precise, the Place de la Concorde hosting the gian Egyptian obelisk), lined by characteristic Parisian houses and luxurious shops. Its length is about 2km, but its continued by the Avenue de la Grande Armée and Avenue de Charles de Gaulle (reaching the modern Défense district), to form the Voie Triomphale: the Triumphal Way.
