I think Park Avenue in New York is awesome, too. Especially the midtown part of it, the UES part is just nice

You have forgotten Unter der Linden in Berlin, the boulevard from Bandeburg Tor to Alexander Platz and in BCN Las Ramblas from Placa de Catalunya to Mediterranean Sea, where there is the statue of Colom.

But, my fav is 5th in NYC.

1st Champs Elysees no doubt

then any of these:

Via del Corso (Roma)
Via della Conciliazione (Roma)
Gran Via (Madrid)
Avenida de Mayo (Buenos Aires)
Unter der Linden (Berlin)
Strand/Fleet (London)

there's an avenue in Parma that is maybe the most beutiful in the world but its name I don't remember. it was designed during french occupation.

the one's in NY where beautiful once but now, after demolitions is not so beautiful as the ones menttioned before.

Saint Pertersbourg has wonderful palaces but somehow its avenues are not so impressive as them.

Really, I live in Milan, 130 km from Parma and I know the city quite wll, but I don't know about you are speaking. Parma has nice street, e.g. Viale della Repubblica or the street along the river Parma or the street in Parco Ducale but avenue I don't know what you're refering to.

The first one historic an with Duomo and the enbassy, the most famouse is the soviet one, the second a more commercial one.

In Milan we have Corso Buenos Ayres, starting from Porta Venezia to Piazzale Loreto.

And Corso Sempione, the ipotetical end of Champee Elysee in Paris

Yes, I thought a little more and Newski MUST be on the list.

I don't like 9 de Julio because everytime I see it I think of all palaces and theaters demolished for doing it, but it certainly is on the top 3.

And how the hell I forgot Rue de Rivoli, and Via Veneto!!!!!

I don't really manage to understand where's the beauty of an expressway in the middle of the city... Diagonal Norte is the best one of Buenos Aires, of course.

And Champes Elysees is always the same architecture... nothing special... it is marketing's doing.

Avenida 9 de Julio was ruined in the 80s.

Originally there where 4 lanes in each direccion in the center way + 2 lanes in each lateral. The rest of it where huge center squares with benchs, lots of trees, flowers and grass.

Then it was widden to 7 lanes in each direction in the center, and 3 lanes in each lateral and it ruined it completly.

It also has undergroud parking while in other countries there weren't even cars, very modern at that time.



now it's not even tha shadow of what it used to be.

according to Conde Nast and an worldwide survey it did, the most important avenue in BA is Avenida Alvear and it's on the world's top 5.

How can you compare that last one to the Champs Elysees? It doesn't belong in this thread.
