  Arc de Triomphe
by AcornMan

Like spokes on a gigantic bicycle wheel, twelve streets feed into the motorway that circles the celebrated Arc de Triomphe. The most famous of these streets is the Champs Elysees, which extends all the way southeast to the Jardin des Tuileries on the north bank of the Seine. From the top of the Arc one has the best view of the city anywhere except from one of the observation decks at the Eiffel Tower. If crossing the motorway around the Arc looks daunting, don't worry, because there is actually a tunnel going under the street from the northeast corner of the Champs Elysees. There may be others as well, but that's the one I saw and used.
