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!
You can only get to the Arc de Triomphe from a passageway that goes under it. (Don't confuse it with the subway entrances.)
Lots of people. Don't bother with the tour of the inside and the top, esp. if you are planning to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
Check out the view from the Millennium Wheel is far better and more exciting.
I always dreamed of seeing the ark. and when I went to paris in jan 2008 i wasnt disapponited. to me paris woulnt be paris without it . Because I went in january there whent too many people .it really is the most impressive structure ive ever seen
in fact napoleon bonaparte left this monument to keep history of france present ever. A very nice place to visit. A pride for paris,. Too much traffic jam however and lots of noise.too many visitors throughout the day and night. Worth going there whilst in france through les champs elysees. We were there in feb 2009 and took many snaps. Could not get the chance to view it at night as eiffel tower.will make it sooner.regards.
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.
Oh my goodness the Champs Elyesse is the cream of the crop for shopping in Paris. As for other attractions in paris this is one of the Best and if you are there on a Sunday you must go to the Chicago Pizza Resturante ot to Sunday Gospel Bruch at a resturant on a side street off the Champs that is like a TGIF or Claim Jumper....It is am American Resturant with Gorumet Burgers ect...Like Friday's. it is awsome. 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.
