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 doesn't disappoint the first time tourist or the seasoned traveller. The city of lights enchants all day or night. Every section of the city reveals a delight which satisfy the senses, from the Arc de Triomphe to the monument honoring the storming of the Bastille. The beauty and history regales and the spirit of the French encourages all to enjoy life. Visitors will find that art and history are intertwined and that even the seemingly mundane, like eating out, is made a delightful extravagance.
The Arc de Triomphe is a great place to see the city. The Eiffle Tower is also a great place to do the same, but you cannot take pictures of it while you are on it. The Arc gives you great views of the Champs Elysees and the Eiffle Tower!
Until you stand underneath the Arc de Triomphe you have no idea just how huge it really is! This is a great place to take some photos of the city. You do have to purchase a ticket to climb to the top, but if you have the Visite Paris pass, this is included along with Musee d' Orsay, Le Louvre, Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, and Sacre Coure in addition to numerous others.
One thing most people in my tour group enjoyed, including myself was the Arc de Triomphe. It is definately worth a hike up the stairs. There is a cut gift shop towards the top and you can go to the very top and see a lot of Paris. It is also home of the Normandy flame which I was able to be there for the relighting of.
