Arc de Triomphe, Paris: 399 reviews and 699 photos
The Arc de Triomphe stands at the junction of a number of busy roads. To reach the Arc you have to take an underpass. The arch itself is very impressive both inside and out. The inner surfaces are devoted to listing generals of the various battles fought by Napoleon. The outside has statues, and nearby is the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the eternal flame.
The Arch was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806, but was not completed until 1833-36. It is modelled on the Arch in Rome.
