An American (Commercial Invasion) in Paris

by The Champs-Élysées is often referred to as “the most beautiful avenue in the world.” Beginning at the Place de la Concorde and running up to the Place Charles de Gaulle, bordered by the Arc de Triomphe and forming part of the Axe historique, this stretch of street is a part of history.
