Les Champs Elysees
According to greek mythology it was a section of the Underworld: The Elysian Fields, Elysian Plains or Fields of Asphodel, were the final resting place of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous.
The Champs Elysées Street is one of the symbols of Paris. Elegant, even prestigious, the “Most beautiful avenue of the world” adds to the beauty of the City of Light. The northern area (the left side when you go down the avenue) is the Parisian’s favourite side, a meeting place where you can stroll, look, go out, shop and party.
Faubourg Saint Honore
The street takes its name from Saint Honoratus, patron saint of bakers and confectioners. This saint, who was bishop of the city of Amiens in the 6th century, is said to have started as a baker’s boy and that the long pole he used to poke ambers was covered with flowers.
The Faubourg Saint Honoré district started developing in the late 17th century thanks to rich financiers who built beautiful hotels, some of which are still visible between Faubourg Saint Honoré Street and Gabriel Avenue. Today, the Faubourg Saint Honoré street houses numerous luxury shops and several important people live there, like thenone more important than the inhabitant of the Elysee Palace, the President of the French Republic himself. The street and immediate surroundings are the perfect place for an elegant stroll.
Plaine et Parc Monceau
In the 18th century, the duke of Chartres established a French-style garden on this land, which he owned. He later asked the landscaper Carmontelle to design this garden, who gave a unique and a little crazy touch to the place. Then buildings of all styles and periods appeared…
The Parc Monceau is a peaceful green space, surrounded by vast avenues: Hoche, Courcelles and Malesherbes. It is one of the most beautiful gardens of the capital: its trees with impressive branches, its countless birds, and its buildings of all periods create a particular charm. You will appreciate the peaceful atmosphere of the place, because it is isolated by a vegetable belt, of luxury buildings and luxurious mansions.
Bois de Boulogne
In 1308, Philip IV made a pilgrimage to Notre Dame of Boulogne-sur-Mer. When he came back, he built in the forest of Rouvray a similar Church, in the hamlet of Menus. The name of Boulogne quickly replaced the name of Menus.
With lakes, waterfalls, ponds, gardens, lawns, undergrowth, the wood of Boulogne reminds the charm of former days. Today this wood also evokes other meetings, such as hundreds of racing cyclists who train every Sunday morning.
