  Arc de Triomph
by Jenniflower

Built in memory of Napoleon's Great Army, he began building the Arc de Triomph in 1806. Twelve Parisian Avenues start from the Arc.

Scramble up the 234 steps to the top of the Arc for a superb view of the Paris vicinity surrounding Charles de Gaulle Etoile, including the spectacular view of the Champs Elysees. A more delightful scene you could not imagine!

If you are pushed for time, give the museum there a miss. Just dont miss out on taking in the gorgeous Parisian scenery all around at this world-renowned junction.
