Running between the Place de la Concorde and the Place Charles de Gaulle, this 1.9 km long boulevard is the most famous avenue in Paris and the most recognizable commercial street in the world. It is not only known for its theatres, cafés and luxury stores, but also for hosting events such as the Bastille Day military parade or the last stage of the Tour de France cycle race.

Completed in the 17th century, when the area was cleared to plant a line of trees, it’s now home to high-end flagship stores such as Cartier or Louis Vuitton. The avenue is divided into two: at the lower part, closest to the Place de la Concorde, there are impressive buildings such as the Palais de la Découverte, the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais.

The higher part is where luxury stores, cinemas, restaurants and large department stores are located. One of its most famous attractions is the nearby Lido Cabaret, with its Art Deco lobby and glitzy chandeliers.
