Pedestrian Only Sundays on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées
On the first sunday of every month, pedestrians can enjoy the beautiful Avenue des Champs-Elysées without the disturbance of traffic and congestion. Cars will be redirected from the 2 kilometre street in a bid to cut down pollution in Paris. The first sunday of the month is also when the museums in Paris are free to the public.
An additional nine routes will also be pedestrianised every Sunday and public holiday – adding to the 13 already subject to traffic restrictions under the “Paris Respire” anti-pollution programme, providing a great opportunity to explore Paris like never before.
