I enjoyed making my way up the Arc de Triomphe! The views from the top are breathtaking, and standing next to this building and admiring all the details of the sculptures is impressive! I liked that I didn't have to be there at a specific time, but I could go at any time that suited me best. This wasn't a guided tour, meaning I could stay as long as I wanted at my own pace.

The view is amazing and stairway makes for a great picture looking up. Be aware how many stairs need to be climbed. To safely reach the monument you can follow the underground passageway on the Champs-Elysées that comes up at the base of the Arc de Triomphe. Don’t try to cross the roundabout.

Not really skip the line, because the line of people with these “skip the line” tickets was longer than the line of people who hadn’t bought a ticket already. Maybe a 30 minute queue - fine but it’s not skip the line. The monument was great once we were up there though.

Details

The Neoclassical interpretation of the ancient Roman triumphal arch style is the Arc de Triomphe. The climb to the platform at the top of the arch, which is fifty meters tall, is well worth it. The arch is surrounded by a dozen Parisian avenues that lead into the City of Light. You'll be right in the middle of Paris, which is one of the world's most fascinating cities.

Propelled by the incredible curves of antiquated Rome, Napoleon appointed the Bend de Triomphe soon after his triumph at Austerlitz. He unfortunately died before it was finished.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, located at the arch's base, honors the 1.3 million French soldiers who perished in World War I. See the eternal flame that is rekindled every evening at 6.30 p.m. In addition, there is a must-see exhibit that explains this monument's symbolic significance.

The 284 steps are definitely worth it for the view from the very top of the arch. Take in the entirety of Paris from your elevated vantage point. In contrast to the mandatory visit to the Eiffel Tower, not all tourists attempt to enter the Arc de Triomphe. In addition, you won't even need to stop on your way in with tickets that let you skip the line.
