The Champs-Elysees Avenue Paris
The most beautiful avenue in the world.
It’s not the widest or the longest avenue in the world, but almost everyone agrees that it’s certainly the most beautiful avenue in the world… and one of the most expensive too, for businesses. Famous brand names fights relentlessly to have their own space there, and the selection process is ruthless (H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch and Dolce & Gabbana).
But there’s more to ‘Les Champs’ (as Parisians call the Champs-Elysees like that) than just shopping – although here you can do it in amazing style. With its wide leafy pavements, numerous cafés, bar, restaurant and cinemas and the most amazing view from the Arc de Triomphe straight down to the Place de la Concorde, the Champs Elysées is luxurious and stunning like nowhere else in the world. And don’t forget that nearby there are all the restaurants you could ask for, bars, nightlife and the Lido.
It’s also one of the city’s most popular meeting spots and often used for popular events. The Bastille parade that marches down it on 14th July is always impressive, it’s the venue for the last leg of the Tour de France and New Year’s Eve there is a rowdy but good-natured night with almost everyone holding a bottle of champagne!
Basically, if you visit Paris and miss the Champs Elysees, you haven’t really seen Paris…

The Seicento in Bologna
Drawings from the Musée du Louvre
The exhibition covers artists born before 1660 and concludes with the drawings of Burrini.
In all 48 artists are represented, some of whom—Lanfranco, Algardi, and Grimaldi, for instance—spent most of their careers away from Bologna, but were so marked by the teaching and the example of the Carracci that their graphic work is authentically Bolognese.
However, the acquisitions made for the Cabinet du Roi, the fortuities of the French collection mania of the last third of the eighteenth century, and the confiscations at the time of the French Revolution, have meant that a substantial part of these treasures has remained in France.
