The Champs-Elysees

The celebrated grand boulevard of Paris. The Arch de Triomphe at one end (approaching 200 years of age), and an obelisk from Luxor (3200 years old) at the other, and your wallet will also age appropriately in between.

Every brand that’s a brand is represented. We suggest you start at the obelisk end and if you get to the other end without spending a dollar (or euro) you can proudly march through the arch.

The Champs-Elysees
It's a shop-till-you-drop experience - but wait, we meant the other arch, not the Swarovski arch.

We walked the length and breadth of the great avenue – and I do admit it was fun because I enjoy people watching. I would probably go back just to see the Arch de Triomphe without scaffolding – I’m sure they have to take it down one day.
