Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous attractions in Paris. It was raised on the order of Napoleon in 1806 as a monument in honour of his army. The Arc de Triomphe was only finished in 1836, and has since then turned into one of the main landmarks of Paris. A giant construction, 50 meters high, 42 meters wide and 22 meters deep.

On the top of the Arc de Triomphe you can see the victories of Napoleon listed up. You can get to the top using an elevator, and from there you can enjoy a stunning view towards all the 12 avenues starting from place de l’Etoile. We recommend to start your walk on Champs-Elyses from here.
