One of Paris' most important areas, this district is full of history, high-end shopping for antiques, plus lots of very good restaurants. A very nice upscale area.

This arrondissement is home to so much, Champs de Elysees, which connects the Arc de Triomphe with the heavily congested traffic circle at Place de la Concorde. Lining the Champs de Elysees are high-end stores. In addition, there are numerous museums located through this neighborhood

The 8th Arrondissement or district is most famous for its elegance and landmarks. The Arc de Triomphe is located here and is a must visit. Visit inside the Arc and walk up to the viewing area for great views down the Champs Elysees.

The 8th arrondisement is a popular zone in Paris. It starts from the Place de Concorde, encompasses all of Champs Elysees up to Arc de Triomphe. To the north up to St. Augustine Church. Certainly you will be in this area a number of times.
