|Champs-Elysées - Karine|
Alice, a journalist from RFI (Radio France Internationale) ran with us. Her radio report talks about all the original ways to visit a city like Paris. We think Paris Running Tour is definitely one! :^) You can hear the radio report here (in French).
Merci Karine, merci Alice!
About the Champs-Elysées:
The Avenue of the Champs-Elysées is called "The most beautiful avenue in the world", you know that, but do you know what "Champs-Elysées" stands for?
In the Greek mythology, the Elysian Fields ("Champs-Elysées" in French) were the place where the blessed dead, the heroic or virtuous souls go.
The nearby Elysée Palace is the residence of the French President, for which reason "l'Élysée" is frequently a metonym for the French Republic presidency.
