A monument built to commemorate Napoleon's victories, with an observation deck. This arch is huge and has a car roundabout around it. There is also an underground tunnel which will take you inside the Arc. You can see the Eiffel tower from the top as wall as very scenic view of Paris. I recommend making a point to visit this monument.
Make your plans to go right before sunset so that when you get to the top it will be down. The view of the Eiffel Tower from the top of the Arc De Triomphe after the sun has set and it's all lit up is amazing. Bring a small tripod and snap some pictures. At 10pm the Eiffel Tower has a light display that makes it look like a diamond glistening. The lights twinkle for a couple of minutes. It's beautiful.
We purchased a museum pass so we were able to skip the ticket queue and go straight up. There's quite a few stairs to the top though so be prepared for the climb. Once at the top the viewing deck offers spectacular views. We were there for sunset and it was a great experience to see Paris disappear into the night and the Eiffel Tower come to life at night. Don't be like my wife and try and cross the road to get the the Arc de Triomphe there's a tunnel to get you from the Champs Elysees and back again.
A structure gate to commemorate Napoleon's victory.It has some other side gates to complete it. It's surrounded with a huge park at three sides and also in one side across a good park to work as a good photo stop. Good for kids place.
Very cool how you need to go underground to reach the arc (around it are moving cars that won't stop for you). Just going around the arc and seeing stuff like the eternal flame is free, if you want to get inside you have to pay (unless you're under 26 and a EU citizen). After you walk a lot of stairs, there isn't really a lot to do or see. But if you walk a few more stairs you get in the top and my God the view is stunning. I would even say that the view is better than from the top of the Eiffel tower. Simply because you can see much more details (because everything doesn't appear tiny) and you get to see all the impressive monuments, including the Eiffel tower. So I highly recommend to get to the top and enjoy the view.
