Arc De Triomphe
Visit the captivating Arc De Triomphe in the heart of Paris and discover one of the city's most famous landmarks.
Standing in the centre of a busy roundabout on the Place Charles de Gaulle on the west end of the Champs-Elysees, the neoclassical monument has been a cornerstone in the city since it was first inaugurated in 1836.
Today, visitors can access the Arc de Triomphe from an underpass and take a lift to the Arc's attic, where a small museum tells the story of the monument's design and construction. From there a short climb to the terrasse offers panoramic views over Paris and an unparalleled vantage point to the famous old city.
