Naturally, the Etoile is area is dominated by the Napoleonic Arc de Triomphe that marks the center from which radiate 12 large avenues, including the most beautiful avenue in the world, the Champs Elysées, that runs all the way down to Place de La Concorde, between the Presidential Palace and Grand Palais museum.
Yet Etoile is so much more besides. Venturing only a minute off the beaten tourist track you enter an upscale residential area that has a village-like atmosphere centered around avenue des Ternes.
Enjoy stylish boutiques, fine restaurants, bakeries and not forgetting the open market stalls of rue Poncelet. The Etoile and Champs Elysees area has it all and provides you with a mighty slice of Paris!
