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.

Spectacular. An amazing sight to see. Provides a wonderful view of Paris with a much safer feeling than the Eiffel Tower. Not a fan of heights, but this wasn't that bad. The spiral climb up and down wasn't wildly open for me to look down and feel like death was coming. Kids get in for free and students get a discounted rate. Cool how you cross the street by going underground. Would not suggest anyone undertaking the climb that isn't good with a lot of steps, but it is definitely worth it if you are willing. If not, still quite the work of art from underneath.
Museum pass was worth it as got to skip the ticket line and was put in a shorter line for security. Impressive view with a lot of stairs to climb. A few elderly people were really having a hard time getting up. It's a big spiral staircase with a bunch of stairs leading up from the subway and then to pass under the road again and back up. The view was amazing and the architecture was amazing. The inside exhibits were good explanations of the wars and history of battle uniform but I was expecting a bit more than posters on the walls and a few screens. The view at the top was amazing and you can walk all the way around. Once you are done you can take pictures at the bottom and relax before getting to go down the underpass. It is really easy to get to by metro just follow the signs as a bunch of lines stop here.
What an impressive thing to behold. It's one thing to see it in movies or photos but to see it in the flesh (or stone), to walk around and under it, to climb to the top for the view, and to see the grave of the unknown soldier with the eternal flame, these were all fascinating and memorable things I did there. The views from the top really help you get a hold of the layout of central Paris especially with the Champs Elysee and the Place de la Concorde way off at the end of it. It was cool to see how the traffic manages to get around it. Chaos was indeed part of it. One of the core places to visit when you visit Paris.
Great place to visit. You can see all road that Lead to the round about. There's is a great looking statue at the second level. At the top level you can see just about everything that's attract foreigners.
Got there early enough in the morning to miss most of the crowds. Loved the views, which were totally worth climbing the stairs. Though the significance of the monument is far less for me, an American, I can appreciate the importance to the French.
