Lesser crowds than Eiffel Tower, less than half the price of entry, and able to take photos where detail can be seen as distinct from top of Tour Eiffel where one is too far away. Able to get a good impression of the layout of Paris streets and where many of its noted architectural masterpieces are located.

Could not believe all the traffic around this place. Pretty cool how it all keeps moving. I wish it was free to get on top of this thing. But you got to make a buck.

Amazing experience! Recommend buying tickets in advance because the lines are long mainly to get on top of the Arc, take comfortable shoes and some water because you will have to take some steps to get on top and it’s tiring, but the view is amazing from up top. Pictures don’t do justice on the view or on how big the Arc is.

The first time we visited last week it was closed due to a strike. There were no signs whatsoever and the only way we knew was that we asked a worker that we just happened to see. We returned a few days later and it was open. Beware that it's a narrow and long climb to the top. Don't plan on using the bathroom there unless you want to wait in the slowest line in history (we didn't wait). The view up top is amazing and should be missed.

There is an elevator for people who have mobility issues but it's restricted to most people.

If you have the Paris Museum Pass you can get in free and skip the line. I HIGHLY recommend this pass (and I'm not getting paid to say so). Who wants to waste time in lines? No one!
