Our tips for Arc De Triomphe

  • Book in advance. Avoid the long queues and enter the Arc De Triomphe without any hassle by booking your ticket in advance, especially during the peak summer season.
  • Bypass the traffic. The monument’s roundabout consists of 12 lanes and has massive traffic which makes it difficult for tourists to navigate around. It is recommended to take the underpass to get to the monument.
  • Pack light. The monument does not have any locker facility, so it is best to carry only the essentials.

Good to know

160 feet tall and 148 feet wide, the Arc De Triomphe is a must-visit not just for its rich historic significance, but also for the most spectacular views of the French capital. The mighty monument lists all the wars fought by France and the names of the French generals involved. Admire iconic views of the Champ Elysees from the top of the attraction and climb the 284 steps to enjoy unparalleled views of Paris.

The monument was commissioned by Napoleon on 15th August 1806 which was apparently his birthday as well. Unfortunately, he could never witness the finished project as he passed away in 1821.

Many artists have contributed to its structure and the design of its four pillars. It is the second largest triumphal arc in the world and has an eternal flame lit since 11th November 1923.
