I have always seen it from the ground level but today we climbed up to the top and its definitely worth it. The interior provides lots of details and history in addition to offering nice views.

We went there after 3 pm, thus the queue wasn't so long and it cost 12€ per adult. But if you are under 25 and non-EU citizen, then you get ticket for 9€ with showing just ID. View from arc was magnificent. Recommend to go...More

Living up to its name the Arc de Triomphe is a triumphant structure at the convergence of most of the iconic streets of Paris. Walk up the Avenue des Champs Elysees towards the Arc and you will be impressed by its stature. Walk underneath it...More
