"Crazy Roundabout" Arc de Triomphe Tip by Donna_in_India
Arc de Triomphe, Paris: 438 reviews and 759 photos
Arc de Triomphe is another famous symbol of Paris. Napoléon commissioned Chalgrin to build the arch to the glory of the French Army in 1806. It is located at the western end of the Champs-Elysees and stands over 51 meters high and 45 meters wide. The arch also includes the Grave of the Unknown Soldiers from the first World War.
Twelve major avenues meet at the Arc in an exceptionally busy traffic roundabout. You can climb the almost 300 stairs to the top for a great view down the Champs-Elysees (make sure the weather is clear and bring some water).
