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

You see it from far away because there are no obstruction just like the Statue of Liberty. Actually there are two Arc de Triomphe. The big one and the small one just outside the Louvre as you head towards the big one. The best place...More

Right at the top of the Champees Elysee it's worth visiting before shopping! Tourists be warned of the man that's dropping his 'gold ring'

Was traveling to arc de triomph on my way to eiffel tower, if you've seen arches of triumph elsewhere you've seen this one also except it IS pretty big and marvelous, but it won't be something worth your time if not done by a guide.

If you're on the Champ Elysee, this is easy for you to check out. Beautiful and you can check it off your list!

One of the famous monuments in the world, no need to pay to go to the top unless you want to take pictures of the Champs-Elysees.
