Today we went to the Arc de Triomphe, what an impressive building. The big bus dropped us off across the road on the champs élysées, we then walked through the tunnel under the Place Charles de Gaulle to the ticket office. We were lucky the...More

First off, there is a tunnel entrance to get to the monument otherwise you will never get across that street! Tickets are not too expensive but the line will make you wait quite a bit. The steps will probably leave you breathless but take a...More

Though a little confusing at first as to how to get the Arc de Triomphe, it is worth it! We figured out quickly you must access it underground. We may have taken a few wrong turns but eventually made our way to the spot and...More

It is very congested by both pedestrian and vehicle traffic around this historic landmark. Make sure to use the pedestrian tunnel out to it and not cross the street.

身為巴黎知名地標,我想就算不上去在底下拍照打卡也是很值得的。凱旋門可以用巴黎博物館通行証上去,不過真的要爬無止境的樓梯。我到的時候已經晚上了,可以一覽巴黎夜景以及夜晚的巴黎鐵塔,十分漂亮。 As a famous monument in Paris, I think it’s worthy of visiting even you just want to take a picture and check in on the ground. You can visit it by museums pass but you will pass the endless stairs if you want to...More

You have to climb up to the top to see the beautiful Paris. I do not remeber the exact fee (12 Euro?), I was visiting on June. But the view is fantastic! There was a 45 minutes que, but I have no regrets.
