Paris Champs-Elysées car-free on July 14, 2018 - Bastille Day?

Published by Elodie D. · Published on July 9th, 2018 at 05:21 p.m.
In 2017, after the traditional military parade, Parisians and tourists could enjoy the world’s most beautiful avenue without caring about cars and motorbikes. This year, the Prefecture de Police has not yet decided to whether or not close the Champs-Elysées to cars. Information are to come on July 2018.

We are getting used to enjoying car-free Champs-Elysées. Once a month, on the first Sunday of the month, cars and other vehicles are not allowed to go on a limited part of the Champs-Elysées, letting Parisians and tourists enjoy the street, which is the perfect occasion to take great pictures.

Even though last year, Parisians and tourists enjoyed car-free Champs-Elysées in the morning of Bastille Day (because of the military parade), this Bastille Day 2018, the call has not yet been made.
