Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées

Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit

Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Joe Dassin

This wonderful song sung by Joe Dassin and written by Pierre Delanoë, Mike Wilsh, Mike Deighan truly captured the essence of Champs-Elysées.

For those of you who have never heard this song, do listen to it.

This beautiful avenue is a busy commercial place. It attracts visitors both night and day. You will find a large number of international fashion brand stores and businesses set up here.

Christmas time will see the avenue  lit up with holiday lights.

14th July( sometimes referred to as Bastille day) is a big occasion. The military parade passes down Les Champs-Elysées.

Did you know that since 1975,it has been the finishing destination of the Tour de France?

As Joe Dassin sings, ‘At Champs-Elysées, at Champs-Elysées, In sunshine, in rain, at midday or midnight. You will find whatever you need at Champs-Elysées’. The allure of Champs-Elyées is certainly worth the visit.
