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

1. 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.

Overall rating

The view is excellent and the building itself was magnificent. It was a lovely experience but we completed it at the end of our day after doing a number of rooftop activities (including the eiffel tower via the stairs) so it was the same thing we had already experienced before, with more stairs. So just bear in mind not to book too many rooftop experiences on the same day. The staff were lovely. I liked being able to skip the line- made planning the day easier.

Bought a 2 day pass but I used it only for a day. It was still worth it. I ended up enjoy more walking once I knew where what is. Overall I had a great time, and the ride was worth it.

Best view in Paris!!! Far better then the Eiffel Tower as far as I’m concerned! Lots of stairs but still worth it.

Our guide was excellent!! We even arranged another tour with him later the same day. Highly recommend!!

it was hassle free & we walked up the stairs in no time to catch the view of Paris
