Wide, centrally located avenue in Paris, almost 2 kilometers long, Champs-Élysées​ is stretched between Arc de Triomphe and Place de la Concorde.

Up to the early 17th century, this area was just open fields (‘Champs’), until Marie de Medici, Queen of France and second wife of King Henry IV of France, ordered creation of the avenue. It was designed by the architect Georges Haussmann and Jacques Hittorff.

Today it is the main pedestrian, shopping and restaurant area of Paris. It is also filled with many attractions situated directly on the avenue or just on the side, starting with famous Arc de Triomphe and all the way to Tuileries Garden, in front of Louvre Museum.
