Overview

The Arc de triomphe was begun in 1806, on the orders of Napoleon I to honour the victories of his Grande Armée. Inspired by the great arches of antiquity, the monument combines the commemorative with the symbolic and it has always played a major role in the national republican consciousness. Every evening, the flame is lit on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Great War. An exhibition portrays the history and explains its symbolic importance, nationally as well as internationally. The terrace provides superb views both by day and night across the city and its great sweeping avenues.-Opening hours : April to September: from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; October to March: from 10 a.m. to 10.30 p.m.-Closed: 1st January, 1st May, 8th May (morning), 14th July (morning), 11th November (morning), 25th December-Entry fees: Adults = 9,5 €; Concessions = 6 €; Free admission: 18-25 years old* (citizens of one of the 27 countries of the EU or are non-European permanent residents of France) * excluding school groups

Close to  Champs-Élysées where you can do lots of shopping at all your high end store such as LOUIS VUITTON, CARTIER and others... also close to lots of food.

You can't really appreciate this structure as much from afar. I suggest crossing the street via the underground walkway and experiencing this landmark as close as possible. You can go up the structure but you have to pay and wait in line.

Take bus tour and get down in this area for photograph. As soon as the light turns red, people run to stand in the middle of the road to pose for photograph, though dangerous but fun to watch people.

The 182 steps to reach the top of the Arc de Triomphe is no easy feat. Upon arriving at the top, you have a spectacular 360 degree view of Paris. Buy you tickets before going.

The terrace is very big and basically goes around the whole top of the Arc de Triomphe. I don’t know if you can hold private events there. I guess it’s the best if you inquire with the official website of the monument.

We bought them onsite. It was not busy at all. Maybe they changed their ticketing service.
