Overview

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

From the first glimpse of this structure I was impressed. It was bigger than we thought and the views were stunning from the top. Really good activity to fill a morning.

Even in cooler February people flock there. The lines to go up were too long for us, but just walking around was spectacular.

No trip to Paris would be complete without a glimpse of this iconic monument. It’s very easy to reach on the M1. Sit at one of the nearby cafes and enjoy the view.

Beautiful place to see. Worth visiting. Only issue is the staff at the ticket desks. They seem to pick and choose who they give a discounted rate too as if you under 25 you get a discounted rate. I didn't carry any ID on me...More

During some peak traffic hours maybe but in general there is no problem. Plus there are other routes near Avenue Champs-Élysées which has less traffic

I went there kids and just blasted through. As long as adults have their tickets, accompanying children can sneak in as long as their ‘childrenhood’ is undisputable. Have fun in Paris !
