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

Easy to get to by metro or bus from the centre, beautiful when visited in the night with all the traffic lights and especially in Christmas with all the beautiful lights.

We walked here from our hotel, and bought tickets upon arrival. Line was short for both the tickets and security. We took the steps to the top, and WOW what a view!

I didn't have any expectations for the top of the Arc de Triomphe but I found it delightful. There are great views down each of the avenues. There is also an interesting museum of World War I uniforms part way down.

This area is characterized by its namesake avenue
which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern
business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de
Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive
offices and presidential palaces; architecture from
19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art
galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron
Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This
