This is a very busy place. Lots of tourist. Stay safe. Use the underground tunnels to get to the arc. Lots of photo opportunities. A must see in paris.

The Arc de Triomphe is a great way to see the city, as the view from the top gives you a great view of your surroundings and, of course, the Parisian ‘Grande Damme’, the Eiffel Tower. The museum inside is interesting, and admission is free...More

Interesting sculptures on the arc. Went alone without any guide. Don’t really need to spend a long time there.

The iconic arc de Triomphe is set on perhaps one of the craziest Roundabouts in France, so be careful crossing the road. Worth standing in the arch and looking up where you will see some fabulous stonework. Not a quiet place but a truly magnificent...More

We visited last week. What a beauty. Nicely maintained. Roads approaching this ICON have everything (all the fashion brands one can think off) so be ready for shopping too.

I want to like this place because it's a part of history and it's a great piece of architecture but it just leaves me conflicted. The good thing is that this is easily accessible via the metro. There's also no need to attempt to cross...More

It was fun seeing the inside of the Arc de Triomphe. You take an underground pass, cross the street, and viola, you’re there.

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.
