Great view from the top. However, 350+ steps up a narrow circular stairway. Hard to stop and rest on the way. Worth it if you are ok with the climb.

We climbed to the top and had fun watching the cars buses and bikes queue for placement in the roundabout. No audio tour so one must read to understand.

What a cool place! 284 steps to the top is not easy but worth the view. It cost 12 euros & if you check the website for the Arc they tell you the wait time. Do not run across traffic to get there, look for...More

A "must see" while in Paris. The view driving up to Arc de Triomphe is picturesque and the views of the city from the top are amazing. Be prepared to climb a few stairs and getting some exercise. There is a souvenir shop within the...More

Sorry, we did not enter the Arc de Triomphe proper. We stayed in a hotel near it and walked there to access public transportation and tour buses, etc.
