Arc de Triomphe

Posted on Updated on

Arc de Triomphe
Place de l’Étoile, Paris, France

On the Champs-Élysées
Pronounced: shans-ellie-zay
(the “mp” becomes an “n”)


Getting to the Top
If you have a Museum Pass, avoid the long line in the underground tunnel and head to the front of the line

You will climb a LONG circular staircase to an unexpected Tourism Center toward the top, the bathrooms (la salle de bain) circa 1950’s

The rooftop was anti-climactic to us. For a better view, we suggest:
-The Plaza at La Defense
-Sacre Couer
-The top floor balconies at Centre Pompidou
(although, we have never been to the top of Tour Eiffel or the towers of Notre Dame)
