70 meters wide, the Champs-Elysées run for 1910 meters in a straight line up hill from Place de la Concorde, the largest square in Paris, to Arc de Triomphe, the monumental arch built on the order of French Emperor Napoleon in 1806. The Champs-Elysées were commissioned in 1667 by Louis XIV, the Sun King who also commissioned Versailles Palace, to extend the perspective of the Louvre, his first royal palace.
The Champs-Élysées were originally marshy and uninhabited land. Marie de Médicis commissionned a long alley lined with elms and lime trees beyond the Tuileries Palace, along the Seine: the Cours la Reine was opened in 1615. Around 1670, André Le Nôtre, gardener to Louis XIV, was responsible for continuing to develop these lands. It traced in the axis of the central pavilion of the Tuileries Palace, from the current Place de la Concorde to the current Rondpoint des Champs-Élysées, towards the current Place de l'Étoile - a beautiful avenue bordered by land with alleyways of elm trees and grass carpets.
The current name of the "Champs-Élysées" appeared in 1694 but was not definitively fixed until 1709 as evidenced by the royal accounts. This name was chosen after the mythological term "Champs-Elysées" (equivalent of paradise) probably to take the opposite view from the marshy origins of the avenue.
On April 2, 1810, it was through the avenue, adorned for the occasion of a fictitious triumphal arch, that the new Empress of the French, Marie-Louise of Austria, entered the capital. Later, Russian Tsar Alexander I, King Frederick William III of Prussia and Prince Schwarzenberg took their places in a gallery set up near the Elysée Palace to watch the parade of Allied troops. These bivouaced in the gardens which they left in a deplorable state. Louis XVIII had them rehabilitated and opened Avenue Gabriel. To continue the development, the Prefect of the Seine had all of the gardens assigned to the City of Paris by a law of August 1828: “Place Louis XVI and the so-called Champs-Elysées promenade, as they are designated in the plan annexed to this law, including the constructions owned by the State and with the exception of the two ditches in the Place Louis XVI which border the Tuileries garden. The said concession is made at the charge of the city of Paris to provide for the costs of surveillance and maintenance of the places designated above; to carry out, within five years, embellishment work up to a sum of at least two million two hundred and thirty thousand francs; to keep their current destination for the land granted, which may not be alienated in whole or in part ”.

For the end-of-year celebrations, since 1980, commercial brands have offered the world magical Christmas illuminations, over 2 kilometers long, organized by the Champs-Elysées Committee.
