Once hotel check-in settled and we had our late lunch, we are set to explore Champs Elysees. We took the bus outside Gare Du Nord and dropped-off nearby Champs Elysees Clemenceau and started walking toward Arc de triomphe. Along the sidewalk, you’ll find cafes with people drinking coffee and people watching people. The sidewalks were busy with tourist and locals as it was a Sunday. What you’ve seen in the movies of Champs Elysees is what you’ll experience, minus the sound of accordions.
