The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a grand boulevard in the French capital Paris. It is 70 meters wide and nearly two kilometers long, starting at the Place de la Concorde and ending at the Place Charles-de-Gaulle. The Champs-Élysées form the middle part of the historic axis, between Obelisque (Place de la Concorde) and Arc de Triomphe (Place Charles de Gaulle). The Avenue des Champs-Élysées has been named after the Avenue of the Champs-Elysées since 1789. It is the “Avenue of the Elysian Fields” and is derived from the blessed Elysion, where, according to Greek mythology, selected heroes are transferred.
