"Thanks, Napoleon" Arc de Triomphe Tip by Herkbert
Arc de Triomphe, Paris: 399 reviews and 699 photos
The second most notable monument for us was the Arc de Triomphe. With its location at the start point of so many streets, it was easy to find - you just had to walk. We walked up the Champs Elysee, checking out so many of the interesting little places along the way, while watching it get bigger and bigger as we approached.
If not for the tunnels to get across the traffic circle, it would be impossible to see it up close. Do be careful, trying to run across the street is not a smart thing to do!
The great arch with its huge reliefs and memorial to the fallen soldiers was quite a site.
