Overview
More
The Arc de triomphe was begun in 1806, on the orders of Napoleon I to honour the victories of his Grande Armée. Inspired by the great arches of antiquity, the monument combines the commemorative with the symbolic and it has always played a major role in the national republican consciousness. Every evening, the flame is lit on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Great War. An exhibition portrays the history and explains its symbolic importance, nationally as well as internationally. The terrace provides superb views both by day and night across the city and its great sweeping avenues.-Opening hours : April to September: from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; October to March: from 10 a.m. to 10.30 p.m.-Closed: 1st January, 1st May, 8th May (morning), 14th July (morning), 11th November (morning), 25th December-Entry fees: Adults = 9,5 €; Concessions = 6 €; Free admission: 18-25 years old* (citizens of one of the 27 countries of the EU or are non-European permanent residents of France) * excluding school groups

Until you have spent a morning (or two) appreciating the Arc de Triomphe, you have not fully experienced Paris. The Arc is far larger than you realize until you walk up under it. (Be careful getting across the busy boulevards.) In brief, the Arc itself...More

The view is one typical, and so touristic you feel in a Woddy Allen's film about Paris. Why not ? But the sculptures are very interesting, with a classical moving composition and some audacities in expressions, even it is so french too: La Marseillaise!

First, there's stairs. A buuuuuuncha them, so prepare yourself for that. Second, it's fine. For 12 euros, it's ... okay. It's not a bad view - especially if you want a nice view of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower. Unfortunately, the day we went...More

Hi, When you get to the Arc you can buy tickets at the entrance. You can’t miss it as it’s well signed 😀
