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.

The bus tour was one of the highlights of our Paris trip. The bus was well furnished, the tables were set very nicely. The menu was excellent and sufficient. The idea of driving to many of the sights of Paris and being able to eat a 5-course meal was implemented very well. Only a briefing/explanation of the iPad guide at each table would have been desirable. So we had to work out the whole thing in 10 minutes by trying it out for ourselves. We would definitely do the tour again.

Really good bus tour, the audio was informative and funny. The stop was easy to find using the map on their site. The Seine tour was ok but it was a real person speaking and she spoke mostly in French (which she would being in France of course) and then translated to English by which time we had sometimes already passed the attraction she was speaking about but the boat tour itself is a good way to see the tourist attractions. I would recommend both tours.

A really nice way to see the city and learn about the history. We also used it for our transportation around the city. VERY PLEASED!!!

Amazing experience, stunning views and absolutely lovely service and food. Would 100% do this again.

Using the skip the line pass got us ushered into an elevator to the top within minutes. Loved it!
