"Visit the ARC DE TRIOMPHE." Arc de Triomphe Tip by kiwi

Arc de Triomphe, Paris: 49 reviews and 51 photos

  Arc de Triomphe
by kiwi

Favorite thing: Visit the ARC DE TRIOMPHE. The queues here aren't as long as at the Eiffel Tower, and the view is still very impressive, from the top. There is a very interesting memorial at the top, and also at the base. A small but interesting souvenir shop can be found at the top.
Camera tripods and cell phone use are banned on the top of the Arc. It's entertaining watching the traffic circle the Arc on the massive roundabout with several lanes. There is quite an art to navigating on and off the roundabout.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
