The Champs Elysees is perfectly situated in the center of Paris, between the famous sights of the 1st arrondissement and the commercial hub that is La Defense. This means that the area is just as popular with business travelers as it is with holidaymakers. Of course, being some two kilometres in length, anyone planning to regularly commute to the business district will want to find accommodation towards the western end of the boulevard (Arc de Triomphe), whilst those looking to enjoy the famous sights of the French capital may prefer to locate themselves towards the Place de la Concorde. There are plenty of streets connecting directly to the Champs-Elysees, with Rue Washington and Avenue George V being good options for those who do not wish to stay on the boulevard itself.
There are plenty of options when it comes to the type of Champs Elysees accommodation. However, luxury serviced apartments offer the most comfortable and impressive experience by far. Alternatively, it is also possible to find small, self-contained studios, which are often the more suitable option for single occupancy or anyone with budgetary constraints.
Paris is known for many things - culture, creativity, and innovation. It is also famously one of the fashion capitals of the world and anyone visiting the Champs-Elysees will quickly see why, as it is simply lined with boutiques and famous fashion houses. However, the area has a rich history that reaches beyond its current reputation. Below are a few interesting and surprising facts about the Champs Elysees:
The Champs-Elysees is essentially a very long street - which means it traverses several famous landmarks and locations. In fact, the boulevard also leads directly to two iconic attractions: the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde.

In short, the Champs-Elysees and the surrounding 8th arrondissement is one of the most exciting places to be in the whole city.
Q. What is there to do along the Champs Elysees itself?
The Champs-Elysees is primarily known as one of Paris’s top shopping destinations - particularly for the fashion-conscious - most first-time visitors are happy just to see the incredible fashion houses and independent boutiques. However, those not looking to shop can also enjoy people watching from a cafe, or taking in the view from atop the iconic Arc de Triomphe.
Q. Are there any free things to do near the Champs-Elysees?
The great thing about Paris’s world-famous landmarks is that many of them can be enjoyed without actually paying the entry fee - especially the incredible architecture of the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe. Those looking to save money can also enjoy a stroll around the Jardins des Champs-Elysees, with their stunning gardens, fountains, and sculptures.
Q. Is the Champs- Elysees close to any other landmarks?
The Champs-Elysees runs for two kilometers, so those exploring the boulevard will find there are plenty of opportunities to branch off and explore some other nearby sights. Towards the east end are several of Paris’s most famous museums, whilst the Eiffel Tower is just a short walk from the western end. Alternatively, heading south will take visitors to the famous Palais Bourbon.
The area surrounding the Eiffel Tower is right in the heart of Paris - which means those staying in the area have easy access to the city’s abundance of iconic landmarks. Palais Bourbon itself is home to many of these and it is advisable to plan an itinerary when - especially if only for a limited time.

Being in the heart of one of the world’s top cities for gastronomy and surrounded by stunning architecture, it is of little surprise that the Champs-Elysees and 8th arrondissement boasts a huge selection of great places to eat. Most of the restaurants are located down side streets rather than along the Champs itself, so it's a good idea to have a place in mind when venturing out to eat.
