Avenue des Champs-Elysees
- Holiday Attractions: "Every year the Champs-Elysees rolls out its little chalets of holiday goodness and goodies. The lower part of the Champs, from Rond Point Champs-Elysees to Place de la Concorde transforms into a holiday market. There are gifts to buy and there are loads and loads of treats, savory and sweet, in which to indulge."
- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: This holiday Christmas market attraction is an annual event. It goes up at the beginning of December and last through Epiphany.
