Avenue de Wagram was opened in 1789 and links Rue de Tilsitt to the famous Place de l’Étoile. It was only in 1864, however, that it became known as Avenue de Wagram. Place Wagram takes its name from the victory at the Battle of Wagram. Nowadays, Avenue de Wagram is one of the busiest shopping streets in Paris and is very popular with tourists and onlookers who like to saunter down the street window shopping. This avenue is often used by tourists heading to Place de l'Étoile.
