Owner description: 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

Don't just drive by, you really NEED to take the stairs to the top. Be prepared for a workout, but it's very worth it. The views of the city are amazing.

Its so easy to be at the Arc de Triomphe, and should be seen by anyone coming to Paris the first time. Very interesting way to grasp the history of the time.

When I heard it was the largest traffic roundabout I couldn`t imagine it was That large. It is indeed huge, and just a few steps from the metro station. You can take a walk on Champs Elysees which end right at the Arch and have lovely and expensive shops, but definetly worth visiting.
