The Avenue des Champs-Élysées draws millions of visitors every year to wander its wide pavements, relax in its famous cafés, and browse its huge range of luxury retail outlets. The boulevard is the traditional place for major national celebrations and also hosts the final stage of the Tour de France cycling race each year. The 150-foot-tall Arc de Triomphe victory arch marks the western edge of the Champs-Élysées, and this iconic monument is worth the 30-minute stroll from Place de la Concorde. Commissioned in 1806 by Napoleon, it boasts ornate sculptures of battles won by the famous French Emperor.
