The Arc de Triomphe was built by Napoleon, who wrote the names of his victorious general in it - you can see if you go under the arc. The names of the ones that lost battles were not included! You can go up, and pay for it, but I did not do it, I have friends who did and enjoyed the view. you can jst take the tunnel to go under it, you cannot cross the street on the surface level. After taking your pictures take some time to stroll down the Champs Eliysees Avenue, and have a coffee, some madeleines or macaroons! Enjoy, The metro takes you just to the point - the station is called arc de triomphe.
