The curiosities at the bottom of the Champs-Elysées

If the upper part of the Champs-Elysées has many shops that will delight shopping enthusiasts, the lower part of the avenue has many attractions. With these historic monuments and these essential addresses, it offers a walk where relaxation and cultural activities mix. Here's what you shouldn't miss.

The Petit Palais, museum of the city of Paris

A commemorative statue
