Arrived easily by metro at Charles De Gaulle Etoile and afterwards walked back into the city via the Champs Elysees. No longer an avenue where lovers meet, and stroll, it is a commercial strip of major upmarket shopping chains.
The Arc itself remains a special place in history dedicated to those who fought and died for France in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. It is not simply a place to visit and to take a photo of the tomb of the unknown warrior but to take time out to remember that so many of the French over the centuries have faced the challenge of war in defence of their country and their people and eventually democracy.
