4.8/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web
Take in quintessential Paris at 8th Arrondissement, home to the Champs-Elysees and Arc de Triomphe, and packed with high-end shops, restaurants, and hotels. Stroll the tree-lined Champs-Elysees, one of the country's best-known roads, and you'll pass a riotous array of cafes and souvenir shops and eventually arrive at the massive traffic circle around the Arc de Triomphe. Experience the swirling masses of cars and people here, a side effect of the district's position in Paris' business nexus, and view the 50 m (164 ft) arch. Also part of the neighborhood, Place de la Concorde represents the city's biggest square replete with embassies, fountains, and other ornate buildings. Don't miss the "golden triangle," one of Paris' most popular shopping areas full of boutique stores.

  • The tourist district of Paris-many of those who have only a couple of hours to catch a glimpse of the French capital, why someone chose the Champs-Elysées and Arc de Triomphe. But "Star Charles de Gaulle" and the street with dozens of shops is far from everything, than rich in constituency 8! This constituency include: place de la Concorde with its famous Obelisk, Madeleine Church, resembling a Greek temple (Parisians themselves consider it nesimpatičnym, to put it mildly), the Church of St. Augustine (more popular), the official residence of the President in the Elysee Palace. Not far from the Champs Elysées, you will find the small Palace, which houses the Museum of fine arts-it's free! Opposite the Grand Palace is situated Small, where various exhibitions are held regularly, and one wing reserved for Palace of discovery-natural science museum with Planetarium and one of three Parisian Foucault pendulum:) Well, 2 steps away from the palatial splendour-at least the magnificent Pont Alexandre III. Beautiful, beautiful constituency 8:)
