military parade, and as the finish of the Tour de France cycle race. The name is French for the Elysian Fields, the paradise for dead heroes in Greek mythology. Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
is widely regarded to be one the most recognizable avenues in the world.

Description[edit] The avenue runs for 1.91 km (1.18 mi) through the 8th arrondissement in northwestern Paris, from the Place de la Concorde
Place de la Concorde
in the east, with the Obelisk of Luxor,[1] to the Place Charles de Gaulle (formerly the Place de l'Étoile) in the west, location of the Arc de Triomphe. The Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
forms part of the Axe historique. The lower part of the Champs-Élysées, from the Place de la Concorde to the Rond-Point, runs through the Jardin des Champs-Élysées, a park which contains the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Théâtre Marigny, and several restaurants, gardens and monuments. The Élysée Palace, the official residence of the Presidents of France, borders the park, but is not on the Avenue itself. The Champs-Élysées

ends at the Arc de Triomphe, built to honour the victories of Napoleon Bonaparte.

History[edit]

Until the reign of Louis XIV, the land where the Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
runs today was largely occupied by fields and kitchen gardens. The Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
and its gardens were originally laid out in 1667 by André Le Nôtre
André Le Nôtre
as an extension of the Tuileries Garden, the gardens of the Tuileries Palace, which had been built in 1564, and which Le Nôtre had rebuilt in his own formal style for Louis XIV
Louis XIV
in 1664. Le Nôtre planned a wide promenade between the palace and the modern Rond Point, lined with two rows of elm trees on either side, and flowerbeds in the symmetrical style of the French formal garden.[2] The new boulevard was called the "Grand Cours", or "Grand Promenade". It did not take the name of Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
until 1709. In 1710 the avenue was extended beyond the Rond-Pont as far as the modern Place d'Étoile. In 1765 the garden was remade in the Le Nôtre style by Abel François Poisson, the marquis de Marigny, brother of the Madame de Pompadour
Madame de Pompadour
and Director-General of the King's Buildings. Marigny extended the avenue again in 1774 as far as the modern Porte Maillot. By the late 18th century, the Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
had become a fashionable avenue; the trees on either side had grown enough to form rectangular groves (cabinets de verdure). The gardens of the town houses of the nobility built along the Faubourg Saint-Honoré backed onto the formal gardens. The grandest of the private mansions near the Avenue was the Élysée Palace, a private residence of the nobility which during the Third French Republic
Third French Republic
became the official residence of the Presidents of France. Following the French Revolution, two equestrian statues, made in 1745 by Nicolas and Guillaume Coustou, were transferred from the former royal palace at Marly and placed at the beginning of the boulevard and park. After the downfall of Napoleon
Napoleon
and the restoration of the French monarchy, the trees had to be replanted, because the occupation armies of the Russians, British and Prussians during the Hundred Days
Hundred Days
had camped in the park and used the trees for firewood.[3] The avenue from the Rond-Point to the Étoile was built up during the Empire. The Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
itself became city property in 1828, and footpaths, fountains, and, later, gas lighting were added.

In 1834, under King Louis Philippe, the architect Jacques Ignace Hittorff was commissioned to redesign the Place de la Concorde
Place de la Concorde
and the gardens of the Champs-Élysées. He kept the formal gardens and flowerbeds essentially intact, but turned the garden into a sort of outdoor amusement park, with a summer garden café, the Alcazar d'eté, two restaurants, the Ledoyen and the restaurant de l'Horloge; a theater, the Lacaze; the Panorama, built in 1839, where large historical paintings were displayed, and the cirque d'eté (1841), a large hall for popular theater, musical and circus performances. He also placed several ornamental fountains around the park, of which three are still in place. The major monument of the Boulevard, the Arc de Triomphe, had been commissioned by Napoleon
Napoleon
after his victory at the Battle of Austerlitz, but it was not finished when he fell from power in 1815. The monument remained unfinished until 1833-36, when it was completed by King Louis Philippe. In 1855 Emperor Napoleon
Napoleon
III selected the park at the beginning of the avenue as the site of the first great international exposition to be held in Paris, the Exposition Universelle. The park was the location of the Palace of Industry, a giant exhibit hall which covered thirty thousand square meters, where the Grand Palais
Grand Palais
is today. In 1858, following the Exposition, the Emperor's prefect of the Seine, Georges-Eugène Haussmann, had the gardens transformed from a formal French garden into a picturesque English style garden, based on a small town called Southport, with groves of trees, flowerbeds and winding paths. The rows of elm trees, which were in poor health, were replaced by rows of chestnut trees. The park served again as an exposition site during the Universal Exposition of 1900; it became the home of the Grand Palais
Grand Palais
and Petit Palais. It also became the home of a new panorama theater, designed by Gabriel Davioud, the chief architect of Napoleon
Napoleon
III, in 1858. The modern theater Marigny was built by Charles Garnier, architect of the Paris
Paris
Opera, in 1883.[4] Throughout its history, the avenue has been the site of military parades; the most famous were the victory parades of German troops in 1871 and again in 1940 celebrating the Fall of France
Fall of France
on 14 July 1940, and the three most joyous were the parades celebrating the Allied victory in the First World War in 1919, and the parades of Free French and American forces after the liberation of the city, respectively, the French 2nd Armored Division on 26 August 1944, and the U.S. 28th Infantry Division on 29 August 1944.

Association and retail stores on the avenue[edit] In 1860, the merchants along the Avenue joined together to form the Syndicat d'Initiative et de Défense des Champs-Élysées, changed to an association in 1916 to promote commercially the Avenue. In 1980, the group changed its name to the Comité des Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
and to Comité Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
in 2008. It is the oldest standing committee in Paris. The committee has always dedicated itself to seeking public projects to enhance the Avenue's unique atmosphere, and to lobby the authorities for extended business hours and to organizing special events. Today, the committee, in coordination with other professional organisations, may review with the Parisian administration the addition to the Avenue of new businesses whose floor area would exceed 1000 square meters. Because of the high rents, few people live on the Champs-Élysées; the upper stories tend to be occupied by offices. Rents are particularly high on the north side of the Avenue, because of better exposure to sunlight. The Avenue is one of the most famous streets in the world for upscale shopping. Adidas, Benetton, the Disney Store, Nike, Zara, H&M, Cartier, Bel Air Fashion, Renault, Toyota, Gap, and Sephora
Sephora
occupy major spaces.[5] Traditionally home to popular brands, as well as luxury brands Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Lancel, Guerlain, Lacoste, Hôtel de la Païva, Élysée Palace
Élysée Palace
and Fouquet's. The arrival of global chain stores in recent years has strikingly changed its character, and in a first effort to stem these changes, the City of Paris
Paris
(which has called this trend "banalisation") initially decided in 2007 to prohibit the Swedish clothing chain H&M from opening a store on the Avenue;[5] however, a large H&M store opened two years later at 88 Champs-Élysées.[6] In 2008, American clothing chain Abercrombie & Fitch was given permission to open a store.[7] Events[edit] Every year on Bastille Day
Bastille Day
on 14 July, the largest military parade in Europe passes down the Champs-Élysées, reviewed by the President of the Republic.[8] Every year during Advent, Christmastide, and Epiphany, the 'Champs-Élysées' Committee contribute for the holidays seasons lighting of the Champs-Élysées. This generally occurs from late November until early January. Since 1975, the last stage of the Tour de France
Tour de France
cycling race has finished on the Champs-Élysées. The subsequent awards ceremony also takes place directly on the avenue. Huge gatherings occasionally take place on the Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
in celebration of popular events, such as New Year's Eve, or when France won the 1998 FIFA World Cup. The Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
has occasionally been the site of large political protest meetings. On 20 April 2017, a police officer was shot dead on the Champs-Élysées
Champs-Élysées
by an extremist and two other officers were injured. They were all sitting in a parked police van, when the attacker pulled up in front of the van. The attacker tried to shoot civilians (including a tourist[9]) and was immediately shot dead by other police on the spot.[10] The shooting happened two days before the first round of voting in the 2017 French presidential election. On 19 June 2017, a suspected Islamist

terrorist drove a munitions-laden car into a police vehicle on the Champs-Élysées.[11] Public transport[edit] Paris

Métro Line 1 runs under the Champs-Élysées. Station Charles de Gaulle – Étoile is at the street's west end, and there are three stations with entrances on the street itself; from west to east these are: George V by the Hôtel George-V, Franklin D.
