A monument that is better to visit at night in my opinion, so that you can enjoy a night view of Paris from up high. You’ll have to climb many many stairs to get up on top but it’s all worthy.Combine it with a night...More

Reasonably priced if you are with an under 18 year old ( they are free) many steps to the top but worth the view. If you are not worried about the view then you can see the monument for free.

Definitely worth visiting if you’re in the city for a few days as it gives you great views of the city. I went on a weekday evening around 5PM and there was no line to enter. Yes, it is included in the Museum Pass. Don’t...More

Take no notice of the stupid arch, the traffic is far more entertaining, although don't get run over or maimed as this could spoil your trip.

It is not named etoile by accident, to stand on top and see the dimensions of the axes, the size of the city is at least as impressive as from Tour Eiffel.

It can be a bit difficult to work out how to actually get to the centre of the round about to be underneath the Arc de Triumph. If you go underground by the edge of the roundabout you will see a long queue, that's to...More

If you visit Paris you most probably will be seeing Arc de Triomph from all over. It is of course much more impressive to see it close by after a nice walk at Champs Elysee. You can go up the monument if you like or...More

We bought tickets to the arc but they were canceled last minute due to protests happening that day. Was really looking forward to it.

We purchased the skip the line tickets, and it a good thing to do. It was fun and a lot of exercise to climb the steps to the top. It is a heart healthy tour.

The entrance was the same for people with and without tickets. There is a separate line for people to buy tickets. The lift to the top is inside the arc near the tomb of the unknown soldier.
