Why is the Champs Elysées so famous?
It was built on the order of the Sun King, Louis XIV, and has 300 years of history. It was once a social place for the aristocrats and the upper class.
On the other hand, it is the main street in Paris to find all the famous brand names. If you want to shop at the famous brand-name stores, you will find them here.
The Champs Élysées Avenue is two kilometers long. At the time, the Sun King asked the designer to open up the road from the center of the Louvre Garden to the current Arc de Triomphe.
The avenue has a variety of luxury cafés, theaters, and brand-name stores. The most representative of course is the Louis Vuitonne flagship store.
While walking along this romantic avenue, I met a French gentleman who introduced me to a famous song about the Champs Elysées!
