The Arc de Triomphe is placed in the middle of 5 biggest Avenues and if you fly over it you will see it drawing a star, that's why the street is called: Charles-de-Gaulle Etoile
Etoile means Star in French, when I saw it first time I was fascinated by its beauty, but unfortunately it was under renovation, funny story I heared that once a carzy pilot made a pass with his little plane under this Arch!
I won't try it never ever!

Address: Place Charles-de-Gaulle Etoile
Directions: Metro Line 1, 2, RER A : Charles-de-Gaulle Etoile

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
