Ultimate romance, some of the most important art ever created, and the world’s most visited attractions await travelers in The City of Lights.
It is said that on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees in Paris—one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world—you’re more likely to meet old friends and long-lost cousins than you are back home. A skeptic might argue that’s because this 1.2-mile stretch between Place de la Concorde and Place Charles de Gaulle is one of the most famous on the planet. Indeed, you’ll have the chance to check off several of the world’s most visited attractions while in Paris. The Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Moulin Rouge, Lido, Notre-Dame Cathedral…Paris points of interest are like a bucket list for even the most novice jet-setter.
A romantic, however, might argue that there’s a magic on this street that just brings people together. It’s best felt while having a cup of espresso in its cafes, catching a show in one of its theaters, or watching the Tour de France bike race speed by. If you’re wondering what to do in Paris, Avenue des Champs-Elysees is the perfect place to start. We’ve heard the opinion of the romantics; meanwhile, a student of ancient Greece would say the street was named after the Greek version of heaven, the Elysian Fields, so it was bound to be a meeting place of longed-for loved ones.
Speaking of loved ones, Paris’ other nickname is “City of Love.” You’d be hard-pressed to take a dozen steps in any direction without discovering romantic things to do in Paris. Between boutique hotels with gorgeous views of the city and the second most Michelin-starred restaurants in the world, Paris is the honeymoon destination in Europe.
