Definitely to be avoided!

August 17th, 2014

The Champs-Elysées on a Saturday afternoon in August (well, probably any afternoon/evening in August) when the line to get in to Ladurée was about 50 deep! Two hours later is was maybe down to 25 – and I can’t even begin to imagine the wait time!  Part of the problem is that it seems like every tourist in Paris flocks to the Champs-Elysées (it’s a challenge just to walk down the sidewalk); the other is that even major stores like Ladurée close all but their main tourist area stores for the August vacations.  So, you’ve been warned!

The picture doesn’t give the full effect – but trust me!  The place was mobbed…
