The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most important landmarks in Paris. It is situated in the middle of the Charles de Gaulle square, where 12 Avenues meet in a star shape, spreading out in all directions. Directly under the gigantic arch, is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, from the First World War. This war monument, marked with the eternal flame of memory (flame souvenir), is devoted to all the soldiers who fell during the war and could never be identified.
If you plan to witness and admire this impressive arch in the flesh, don’t try to cross the busy roundabout. If you value your life you should use the underpass for pedestrians! It takes you directly to the centre of the square. Once you’re there, we recommend you take the lift to the Arc de Triomphe viewing platform. From there you have a truly fantastic view out over the Champs-Élysées, the Place de la Concorde and the Arche de la Défense. If you want to know more about the history of this monument, you can visit the small museum on the top floor, right under the roof of the arch.
The Avenue Champs-Élysées, two kilometres from Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe, is one of the most beautiful streets in the world. A scenic walk, from or to the Arc, along this magnificent avenue, is a unique experience. You will find many attractions, from elegant restaurants to numerous luxury boutiques. Each year, there is also the 14th July parade and the finish of the final stage of the Tour de France. If you happen to be in Paris during the Christmas season, take a look at the stunning Christmas lights along the street, they are dazzling!
