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!
this was wonderous... wink wink so i went there and it was this big arc and i was like whoo ok but then i went indide and i was like hey this is sweet so i started running up and down the stairs really fast and i acdently ran into this old women (who happened to be in a wheelchair) and she started rolling down the stairs!! i didnt mean to it was an accident, but anyways i got thrown out and that was the highlight of my trip... b oy do i love that arc.
The views from the top are just amazing. There is such a small charge to go up the Arc, and it is definitely worth it! You can see all over the city. And inside the Arc there is a little historical museum. The Arc itself is beautiful as well.
it was the most awsomest place i've ever visited i had so much fun ice skateing under the eiffel tower i even got my first kiss there at the fireworks show with who now today is my husband and we even went back there last year for our honneymoon
Oh my goodness the Champs Elyesse is the cream of the crop for shopping in Paris.

Paris is wonderful in the Spring and also visit Port de Cling en Port a open air Sweepmeet open on weekends and Thursday in Paris.

The experience was wonderful,rigth from the avenue looking up to the Arc and going up the stairs to the top.Reading the history of Paris wars,viewing Paris from the sky.You can take pictures from up the Arc de Triomphe.
A 3-day Museum Pass allowed you to use the Lift to go up to the display of Napoleon's artifacts, medallions, and tent (98m above sea level). Use the staircase to go to the terrace to see the 12 boulevards pointing out from the Arc. You know why it is called the 'Etoile' - 12 pointed star!
It commemorates 168 victorious battles that Napoleon I and his generals won. Scuptures around the Arc shows Logistic and Transportation, which were Napoleon's keys to win battles during his compaigns in Spain, Italy and Prussia from 1804-1815.
He also said "Intelligence is not measured from feet to head, but from head to sky!"
