Paris Champs-Elysées car-free on Bastille Day 2017?

Once a month, the Champs-Elysées are free of cars. In 2016, 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 12, 2017.

We are almost 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 2017, the call has not yet been made. You have to know that cutting off the place is costly and that troops are still involved in territorial protection in these days of state of emergency.
