Most of the world’s roadways are known by the citizens of the community and perhaps, for a while, by visitors to the area. However, there are some roads that can be considered “Famous streets of the World” since they are recognized by nearly everyone. They are icons and landmarks, just as significant as the sights around them.
Champs Elysses, Paris, France — This broad avenue which connects the Arc d’Triomphe with Place de la Concorde is one of the world’s most recognizable streets.
Maria-Theresien-Strasse, Innsbruck, Austria — The main thoroughfare in this delightful town within the Austrian Alps, provides a dramatic view of the town and the mountains looming over it.
Royal Mile, Edinburgh, Scotland — Actually a succession of streets which lead from Edinburgh Castle to the Palace at Holyroodhouse, this is the busiest tourist street in Scotland.
Avenue of the Flowers, Cordoba, Spain — This narrow lane lined with, what else, flowers, is a popular, photogenic spot for postcards with the tower of La Mezquita looming above.
