8th Arrondissement – Champs Elysees

The 8th arrondissement of Paris can be found located on what is known as the ‘right bank’ of the beautiful River Seine which flows through the centre of Paris. A major business district, the relatively recent 1999 city census revealed that it employed the largest number of people compared to any other district. It is home to the eponymous shopping street the Champs-Élysées, the nearby austere and iconic Arc de Triomphe and the beautiful Place de la Concorde. The official residence of the President of France is also located within its boundaries.

8th Arrondissement Highlights

The 8th arrondissement is horizontally dissected by one of the world’s most famous shopping streets, the Champs- Élysées. Measuring an incredible 1.18 miles long it is the perfect place to combine window shopping with exercise. You will never tire of the luxury international boutiques, cinemas and delightful cafes that stretch along this beautiful manicured highway. The immaculately clipped horse-chestnut trees that line the street are so typically Parisian and this is of course the perfect place to people watch.

One of the lesser known landmarks of Paris is the giant 75 ft obelisk that stands in the district’s beautiful Place de la Concorde. 3,300 years old, it originally marked the entrance to the Luxor Temple in Egypt along with its twin which remains there to this day. Originally they were both offered as a gift to France in 1829 by Muhammad Ali Pasha, the self-proclaimed Khedive of Egypt at the time. It took four months to escort the first obelisk to France by boat however they never returned to collect their second 280-ton trophy. President François Mitterrand officially denounced any ownership of the second monument in the 1990s as an official gesture towards Egypt. The obelisk was famously adorned with possibly the world’s largest condom in 1993 by ACT-UP, the world-wide AIDS awareness direct action group on 1st December for World AIDS Day.

Be sure to visit the district’s pretty Parc Manceau if you are in need of some quiet solace from the busy city centre. Located immediately north of the Champs Elysees, it has been popular with both locals and visitors to the city since its public opening by Napoleon III in 1861. The park has a less formal feel than the other open spaces in Paris. Take a leisurely stroll around this luscious green city space and discover some unusual statues and a series of beautiful classical follies including an elegant colonnade, pyramid, grotto and a waterfall. If you are travelling with children then they are sure to love the several playgrounds incorporated in the park. The whole site is Wi-Fi enabled and is open daily. Closing time is stretched a little later in the summer months and the nearest metro station is predictably Manceau. Interestingly, the park was the site of the world’s first silk parachute jump in 1797 when André-Jacques Garnerin leapt from a Montgolfier hot air balloon, landing safely to the appreciation of the large crowds that had gathered in the park below.
