I had been to Paris before and even the Arc de Triomphe, but only for some photos from the base. This time we walked up the spiral staircase to the top with our 5 & 4 year olds who ran almost the entire way up and still had energy to burn. But if travelling with young children or older travellers or even anyone who does not do staircases well then you can go up via the elevator (you just have to ask at the entrance). The view from the top is great, your not too high as not to see clearly everyone on the Champs d Elysees. Nice to do at dusk then you get the best of both worlds, the sunset and then the night lights of Paris!
