Paris, often also called the “City of Lights”; is the absolute synonym of love and romance, and with travel and arts. With so many myths and legends hidden amongst its buildings and gardens, so many legendary places to encounter at the corner of a street, Paris has pride of place in the heart of every French person. Attracting artists for centuries, being one of the most active places during the Industrial Revolution in the 19th Century, almost becoming a living person in Henri-Georges Clouzot‘s classic movies in the early 50’s, and today’s beating heart of French culture, the city of Paris is without doubt among the most marvellous spectacles to behold in the world. But would Paris be Paris without the most famous avenue on Earth - the Champs Elysées? Holding a place of choice in the metropolis, the Champs Elysées is the symbol of luxury and glamour. Famous people have walked its sidewalks, have dined in one of its numerous and renowned restaurants, and have purchased haute couture in one of its many fashion establishments… Today, treat yourself and go in the discovery of the Champs Elysées for one unforgettable day. As the winter is still well settled and Christmas time’s around, the Champs Elysées is dressed up with thousands of lights, sequins and festive decorations. It’s the very one time in the year you can witness the most beautiful avenue in the World at the height of its magnificence. Do not hesitate and slowly stroll along its pavements, stopping wherever you like, and sink in the ambience. Chosoe the gentle pace of shopping, or the even gentler pace of sipping a coffee at Fouquet’s – James Bond’s favourite restaurant in the French capital city - and grab here and there some pictures you will keep in your memory for years! From the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde, along to the Grand Palais and its unique glass roof topping all the other buildings around, dive into the best Paris has to offer… But Champs Elysées is not alone in the best things Paris has to offer; les Grands Hôtels Parisiens welcome you to let you experience the finest know how of French hospitality.
