Why you will love it?

Built by Napoleon as a symbol of his triumphant Great Army, the Arc de Triomphe is one of the most iconic monuments in Paris. Its attraction lies not only in its architecture and sculptures, but also in its memorial purposes (dedicated to fallen soldiers of all wars), and perfect view on the Champs Elysées and Historical Axis on a sunny day.

Our Insiders' Article

Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most iconic monuments in Paris. This monumental arch is located on top of a hill marking the start of the famous Champs-Elysées Avenue, and is the symbol of Napoleon’s battle victories for France. Highlights include the sculptures, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the views from the rooftop terrace on a sunny day.

Making the Best of it

Do NOT try to walk across the roundabout to access the Arc de Triomphe! Use the underground walkway at the top of the Champs-Elysées or Grande Armée Avenues. The ticket booth is in that walkway. No ticket is necessary to walk around and under the Arc de Triomphe in order to admire the sculptures and massive monument itself. But entering it and visiting the top requires tickets though. 

Highlights

There are 2 main highlights at the foot of the Arc de Triomphe:

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of WW1, in memory of the soldiers killed in action. The eternal flame on top has been continuously burning since November 1923. The flame is tended to every day at 6:30pm.

The numerous sculptures, including the famous “La Marseillaise” representing the assembly of the people of France departing to defend the nation: revolutionaries, Napoleonists and royalists side by side, led by the Winged Victory.

The Top

The Arc de Triomphe stands at the center of a perfect alignment of iconic buildings called the Historical Axis: the Champs-Elysées, the Place de la Concorde, the Jardin des Tuileries, and the Louvre. You will also see the modern Grande Arche de la Défense, dominating the business district to the west.

Inside the Arc de Triomphe, you will find animated multimedia that gives insight into the Arc’s construction and history and an up-close look at its less accessible sculptures and frescos

History

“You will return home through arches of triumph.” Those were the words of Napoleon to his troops following their victory at Austerlitz in 1805. To honor the brave soldiers of Napoleon’s Great Army, construction of the Arc de Triomphe began in 1806. Napoleon never saw it finished though, as construction ended only 30 years later… long after the his death. 

Conclusion

At night, the Arc de Triomphe is beautifully lit and is well worth the visit. There are also two periods during the year where the sun sets exactly between the arches (around May 10th and August 1st). Stand at the start of the Champs-Elysées to have the best picture, but be careful with the busy traffic!
