This lovely arch which can be seen from far down in the street is absolutely lovely. It amazes me how the traffic flows so easily around it without much hick-up it seems. This impressive arch stands 164 ft tall and was planned by Napoleon but only finished in 1836. It is decorated with some magnificent sculpture by Francois Rude and really worth seeing. This is another site where beggars and pick-pocketers hang out, so be careful
