Day 1 Paris – Av. des Champs-Élysées – 8th Arrondissement (Part 2 of 3)

Heading north from the Petit and Grand Palais’, I ended up on the Av. des Champs-Élysées. There were Christmas markets along the sides of the streets, so I checked out the stalls.

I also had my first French food (French Fries), and Cidre Chaud (Hot Cider) – quite expensive by yummmmm, and just what I needed to warm up.

The Champs-Élysées and its gardens were originally laid out in 1667 by André Le Nôtre as an extension of the Tuileries Garden. Le Nôtre planned a wide promenade between the palace and the modern Rond Point, lined with two rows of trees on either side, and flowerbeds in the symmetrical style of the French formal garden.
