Paris: Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

1. Paris: 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.

To access the Arc from the street you have to find the stair case that takes you under the road to get there. There are a lot of stairs, the elevator was out of order, but it is absolutely worth the climb!!!

Everything was fine, view is amazing. If you go in the evening I recommend to wait for a full hour so you can see iluminating Eiffel Tower.

Definitely appreciated skipping the lines as it was busy. Great to have an accessible lift if required as I couldn't have done the stairs!

although it rained we still had great views from the top and it is set out wonderfully.

Hard work walking all the steps but well worth it when you see the view of the city
