Arc de Triomphe
Arc de Triomphe is a site of memories, current events, and celebrations. The lists of the dead will move you. Standing in a direct line between the Louvre and the Grande Arche de la Défense, the monument links the past with the present and offers amazing views. A truly impressive landmark, 164 feet high and 147 feet wide, Paris would not be Paris without it!
Paris, my number one city. It overall beauty and history are way to fasinating to put it in a small review message like this. But my most favorite spot in the city is the Arc de Triumph at the west end of the Avenue des Champs Elysees. The Arc is a war monument that Napoleon Bonaparte had built to show his great victories. If your are standing under the Arc you will see different names of the towns that he conquered on his campaigns. And here, under the Arc, is a flame burning for the fallen of wars. You can climb the Arc and enjoy a marvelous sight over the city, for a reasonable price.
There is a time in the year when the sun is perfectly alligned with the Champs Elysees and shines under the Arc. This is a great picture spot. I recommend the evenings especially, because the Champs Elysees will be full of lights. All across the Champs Elysees is the Louvre museum, opposite of the Arc, on the east end of this beautiful Avenue.
this place is crazy great! It is such an excellent place to view the city! And you are also able to take pictures here! You cant say you've been to paris with out visiting this amazing area!go there!its funn!
Best City View--From the observation deck of the Arc de Triomphe, you can see up the Champs-Elys�es and such landmarks as the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Sacr�-Coeur, and La D�fense. Although we don't want to get into any arguments about this, we think the view of Paris from this perspective is the grandest in the entire city.
better seen at night climb the arc takes about an hour but well worth it can see all of paris lot of napoleans things on display there also the eternal burning flame for the unknown solider is just under the arc really beautiful place
