A walk along the Champs-Élysées ,I can see where places like Rodeo Drive got there inspiration from. All the well known shopping brands are here along the Champs-Élysées, and then at the and you come to the Arc de Triomphe. Huge crowds again and cars and buses everywhere.
From WikipediaFrom Wikipedia
The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l’Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. It should not be confused with a smaller arch, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, which stands west of the Louvre. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: “Triumphal Arch“) honours those who fought and died for France in theFrench Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
