“Hard to miss (and don't!) if you go to the Louvre”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Although this beautiful arch can be overlooked - since it's near the Louvre, which overshadows it, and because it's NOT the Arc d'Triomphe - it actually should be a main attraction. It's gorgeous and although it's perhaps not as grand and the big arch de triomphe (at the end/start of Champs Elysees) they're a matched set of sort and this arch should be given due respect. Besides, if you're at the pyramid already, it takes a minute or two - and walking about 50 meters - to give this elaborate beauty a once over.

“Very cool”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

This is just on the other side of the louvre, and was along my self guided walking tour of Paris. It is beautiful and definitely work having a look at. And its free, so why not have a look?

“This is not the Arc you are Looking for!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Despite some of the reviews below, this is NOT the Arc de Triomphe that you can climb or that contains the tomb of the unknown soldier. THAT Arc de Triomphe Etoile is at the other end of the Champs Élysées some 8km away.

This Arc is worth a view as you visit the Louvre or the Tuileries though.

Reviewed March 24, 2012

it's small but quite impressive. Not going to take much time of visit in Paris but worth to stop by.
