Avenue des Champs-Elysées

Thursday 3 June 2021, by Colling Wood

It is no secret that the "most beautiful avenue in the world" is located in the heart of the capital. The Avenue des Champs-Elysées, the lively heart of Paris, is popular with Parisians and tourists alike. Its name comes from Greek mythology, where the Champs-Elysées was the resting place of warriors after their death: this symbolises the paradox of this avenue.

More than 2 kilometres long, the avenue links the Place de la Concorde to the Place de l’Etoile, offering pedestrians an unobstructed view of Paris’ chic districts. Let yourself be seduced by the appeal of the most prestigious boutiques during a shopping trip on the Avenue: Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Guerlain and many others open their doors to you for an extraordinary experience.

And if you’re tired of walking, why not try a new experience: discover the Champs-Elysées in a 2CV? The gentle roar of the engine will be a pleasant accompaniment to this moment of relaxation along the most beautiful avenue in the world. We advise you to plan this trip at the end of the day to take advantage of the light of the setting sun, which sublimates the beauty of the place wonderfully.

Then discover another aspect of the Champs-Elysées: its nightlife, full of surprises. Whoever thinks of an exceptional evening must think of the Lido! This prestigious cabaret offers a quality show every evening, hosted by 70 talented artists. You will be delighted with your evening by trying the dinner and show formula: a way of combining the pleasure of the eyes with that of the palate. You can also choose to dine in one of our restaurants located next to the Lido.
