Full description

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.

Very fun! Much different perspective vs Eiffel Tower and others. Very simple and straight-forward. Not much of a tour. Just a lot of stairs to the top, then a nice view. Be prepared for STAIRS!!! Also… thereafter, very close to Champs Elysees shopping and lunch, etc. Highly recommended! We enjoyed it!

Beautiful view from the Arc de Triomphe! The only thing is I wish I had known about the tunnel to the Arc beforehand (totally my problem not the company!). Definitely be aware that the climbing up the stairs can be claustrophobic since it’s steep, winding and has no ventilation. Loved the view and perfect for pictures!

Definitely a workout getting up all those steps, but the destination is breath-taking, albeit in a different way. The view from the top of the Arc is thr best to be found in Paris. Only a few minutes to actually get into the Arc vs 2 hours for the Tower... I'll take the Arc. Tickets are cheap and available. There is a gift shop as well. Plan about an hour for the climb, view, shop and decent.
