Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

4. Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

The Arc de Triomphe is a Neoclassical take on the ancient Roman triumphal arch style. Fifty meters tall, the view from the platform atop the arch is well worth the hike. See the dozen Parisian avenues radiating out from the arch into the City of Light. Paris is one of the most fascinating places in the world and you will find yourself right at its center. Inspired by the great arches of ancient Rome, Napoleon commissioned the Arc de Triomphe shortly after his victory at Austerlitz. Unfortunately, he never lived to see its completion. At the base of the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died in World War I. Behold the eternal flame that is rekindled at 6.30 PM each evening. In addition, there is a must-see exhibition that explains the symbolic importance of this monument. The view from the top of the arch is worth climbing the 284 stairs. From your privileged position, survey all of Paris. Unlike the obligatory Eiffel Tower trip, getting into the Arc de Triomphe is an effort not all tourists undertake. Plus, with skip-the-line tickets, you'll hardly have to break stride on your way in.

Fabulous well worth the money. Waited quite a while to get in and as there were only 2 of us we had to share our table with other people, which wasn't a problem. The show was fab, even though it was all in French we got the gist of it. Colours were fab and some of the gymnastics were amazing. Loved it and the champagne went down a treat. Only bad thing is after the show when we tried to get a taxi back they wanted 50 euros for a 12min drive back. Managed to find a taxi who charged us 35 euros

Excellent end to a long day of sightseeing in Paris. Seeing the monuments of Paris illuminated at night while cruising the river was a truly magical experience. Highly recommended

Nice experience, nice route along a few highlights. Close early for the upper deck, but there is always enough space. You can also sit down. Recommended

Was just beautiful, makes a lovely little evening. Definitely something worth booking.

We didn’t wait to get in at all. Love “Skip-the-Line” tickets!
