Arc De Triomphe - Review
The Arc de Triomphe de l'etoile is a standout amongst the most celebrated international landmarks in Paris. It stands in the middle of the Place Charles de Gaulle which was initially named Place de l'etoile, at the western end of the Champs-elysees. It should not be confused with a more modest curve, the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, which stands west of the Louvre.
The Arc de Triomphe or the Triumphal Arch honours the individuals who battled and bit the dust for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars. It bears all the names of the French triumphs and commanders engraved on its internal and external surfaces. Underneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
The Arc de Triomphe is the focus of the notable pivot, a grouping of landmarks and terrific avenues on a track which extends from the yard of the Louvre, to the Grande Arche de la Defense.

Arc De Triomphe, Paris Reviews
The is a must see in Paris. I actually enjoyed the Arc more than the Eiffel tower. At the top it felt as though we were at the heartbeat of the city. It was lively, fun and felt like the Paris you envision before you arrive. We enjoyed the small exhibit within, visiting the tomb of the unknown soldier, and of course the view from the top. Just stick around at the corner to catch an awesome panorama. That's the only picture type that can truly capture the moment.
Took the kids there on a sunny day to show them Paris' landmarks. Wonderful place to go especially when the weather is good. One can see far away. The lay out is really simple but cleverly done. The explanations on the way up are really interesting. I'd recommend to anyone who wants to have a good overview of Paris.
Very good place for history. There were very few flaws and it had held up nicely over the years. I have to say, this old beauty looks amazing for her age and shows her curves well. Architects get 5/5 for their nice designs. Did not get to get on top of her but the arch is amazing to look at from the ground. Would visit again for the history and just to sit in the shade beneath.
Iconic Monument This was within walking distance of our hotel so upon arrival our group made the trek to view the Arc de Triomphe. It was a Friday evening so the streets and walkways were packed. We did not attempt to ascend opting instead to take in the view, snap pic's and keep our eyes closed as the 15 times our various taxi's used this roundabout. This is an iconic Paris destination and makes for a nice side trip. We thought the taxi ride was spectacular because this is a free for all roundabout!! Worth seeking out when in Paris.
The Arc stands immense and impressive. I was suitably impressed. It’s one of the rare arcs around the world that is actually still used for marching under. If you’re lucky you’ll catch a military procession like I did. They stop traffic to march across to it. If you’re wondering how to get to it when the traffic driving in circles around it is so hectic.. look for an underpass for pedestrians. There’s signage around but if you’re having trouble just ask
