Avenue Charles-de-Gaulle is an avenue in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Paris, France, named after Charles de Gaulle.
The avenue forms part of the Route nationale 13. Until 1971, it was called Avenue de Neuilly, a rare case in France where the road bears the name of the commune in which it is found. Avenue Charles-de-Gaulle continues along Paris’s axe historique, which stretches from the original Palais des Tuileries to Porte Maillot, and which finishes at Pont de Neuilly. It forms a segment of the axe majeur,[clarification needed] which links Paris and La Défense. It is used by a daily flow of 160,000 vehicles.[when?]
Since 1992, part of the avenue passed underground for 440 metres, at the exit of Neuilly-sur-Seine. This was due to the completion of the couverture Madrid.[clarification needed]
