The Arc de Triomphe de l’Etoile is one of Paris's four most iconic structures and one of the most famous European Neoclassical structures. The Arc de Triomphe is built entirely out of stone and engraved with battle scenes from France’s long history. With the Arc de Triomphe as the center, twelve great boulevards of Paris radiate outwards, of which one is the famous Champs Elysées. Climb atop the Arc de Triomphe to enjoy Paris's spectacular urban landscape.
The Arc de Triomphe de l_ 39, & 201; Toile is located in the centre of Charles de Gaulle Square in Paris, France, at the west end of Champs Elysees Street. The Arc de Triomphe, as its name implies, is a triumphant gate for the army to go out for battle. It is the world's largest circular arch, located in the center of Charles de Gaulle Square in central Paris on the island. The square was also built in conjunction with the Lion Triumph Gate, which caused traffic inconvenience. In the mid-19th century, a circular square and 12 roads were built around the Triumph Gate, each of which was 40-80 meters wide and radial, just like the brilliant light emitted by the stars. Therefore, the square is also called the Star Square. The Arc de Triomphe is also called the Stargate. The Arc de Triomphe lies at the end of the famous Champs Elysees. The Arc de Triomphe was originally designed by Shaglang and Raymond, but they disagreed. Two years later, Raymond resigned. So the Arc de Triomphe was finally completed according to Shaglang's design. Maintenance, renovation and management by the French National Monument Centre
Napoleon was built to commemorate the victory. The landmark building in Paris can go directly to the Arc de Triomphe by subway. It is very convenient to visit the Chamelis Street directly.
To the untrained eye, this arc is no different than the countless other arcs that dot both Paris alone, and countless (not literally) other European capital/major cities. My eyes are untrained, so I didn't really see what all of the fuss was about. Nonetheless, this is an integral part of any trip to Paris. I didn't actually go up to the top (that's a thing, right?), but I stood on the street watching tourists attempt to cross the majorly dangerous round-about traffic, which the French have courteously built an underground passageway to avoid, but which tourists are generally totally oblivious to (despite the adequate signage).
Getting here feels like you are a mouse trapped in a maze. But lucky for us, the underground passage way is well marked and eventually you will find yourself at the foot at one of the worlds greatest landmarks.The view from the top is very underrated and it's from here you will truly get a perspective of just how this awesome city operates. Or at least attempts to. The round about is simply crazy and you can spend time just watching the traffic go around and you just have to wonder to yourself, why are there not more fender benders here?
The Arc de Triomphe (Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile) is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. The Arc de Triomphe honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.

Majestic! On this day in December, it took us almost 2 hours in line to begin our ascent to the top (elevator was broken). The structure is magnificent, but really you're there for the view of the city that you get from the top of the arch. We reached the top exactly at dusk. The sight was incredible!!! The Eiffel Tower is also lit up just after sunset so our timing could not have been better! The best pictures of our Europe trip were at this moment from this view! Don't miss out! Entrance is 9.50€.
For centuries, Paris has enticed many of the world’s most influential artists, thinkers, writers, and architects to call Paris home. It is the richness of Paris culture that lures them in; not just the assemblage of beautiful buildings and a pretty skyline.There is so much more to Paris than can be shown in a photograph. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but a picture of Paris, although wonderful in itself, shows only the outermost layer of the Paris experience.
One of the more well known monuments in Paris, right at the end of the Champs-elyses (sp?). The arc is particularly beautiful and lit up at night and a great addition to the Parisian skyline. That said, there is not much more to it than taking the photo, probably worth checking out during your Champs walk.
I absolutely loved visiting the Arc de Triomphe. The Tomb of the Unknown Solider is under the arch. The arch itself is elegantly designed. This spot offers many photo opportunities as well.There is an option to climb the arch for a fee. It is not the greatest view of the city but viewing the traffic (the arch is surrounded by a roundabout) below is a neat sight and also offers an interesting photo experience, especially at night.
