Paris: Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

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.

Our tour guide Liz was fantastic! Informative, engaging and friendly. The bus was comfortable and the driver safe and capable. Giverny was beautiful. The time allotted was decent but maybe slightly rushed. However this may have been due to 2 factors… 1. There was a long wait to get into the house and 2. We were delayed when departing because of one of the guests arriving late. All in all we had enough time to tour house, gardens and pond with a quick stop for lunch and gift shop. Only suggestion I would make is to remind passengers to sit in their same seats when getting back on bus. A few people sat in different seats and it caused confusion when others got back on the bus. Also, at Giverny would be helpful to have better signage to location of bus parking.

We had a lovely lady called (Lucia) Lucy, she told us so much history about the area, took us to areas we would have never know to go! Thoroughly recommend taking a tour with Lucy! Wonderful couple of hours!

Very good. No problems at the turnstiles. I was also able to register the tickets on the Disneyland app and have access to all the contents

It was easy to access the Arc of Triumph with the tickets.

Wonderful. Didn't mind the rain everything was great
