The lower half of the avenue toward the Concorde Square has a different character, with gardens and smart restaurants running off either side.

On the other side of the Avenue are the Petit Palais and glass-domed Grand Palais, used for major art exhibitions, and the adjoining science museum, the Palais de la Decouverte.
