Arc de Triomphe – The Spectacular Triumphal Arch

Arc de Triomphe, one of the landmarks of Paris, rises in Charles de Gaulle Square, at the western end of the city's most famous street, the Champs-Elysees. Built by order of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1806, this magnificent structure was erected to honor France's military victories and army.


The Arc de Triomphe has a height of 50 meters and a width of 45 meters and is decorated with four main reliefs. These reliefs represent some of Napoleon's most important victories and prominent moments in the French revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. Under the structure is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the grave of an unnamed soldier who died in World War I, and every evening at 18:30 a flame is lit to pay respect to the soldiers.


The Arc de Triomphe houses an observation platform that offers visitors panoramic views of Paris. The 284 steps leading up to the Arc de Triomphe offer the opportunity to explore a fascinating 360-degree view of the city. Arc de Triomphe, one of the most impressive buildings in Paris with both its historical significance and architectural splendor, holds an important place in the skyline of Paris as a monument symbolizing France's rich history and national pride.
