Start your day at the iconic avenue – Champs-Élysées. The majestic 2 km in length street can offer a wide variety of experiences, such as a gourmet – take a look at Pierre Hermé pastry creations, enjoy “window shopping” of the most exclusive boutiques or go ahead and do an actual shopping – all in one street. If you follow the avenue from the Arc de Triomphe and keep going straight, you will reach another historical monument Place de la Concorde.
Place de la Concorde is considered to be the second-largest square in France. Nevertheless, this square lived through dark historical moments; nowadays, you can see a giant 3000 years old Egyptian obelisk from Luxor gifted by the Khedive of Egypt right in the middle of this square. On the side, you can enjoy the views over Tuileries Garden, following the most incredible art gallery – Musée du Louvre.
The Musée du Louvre is the largest art museum in the world, being a home for the world’s most famous and limited works of the greatest artists.
