Overview

The Arc de triomphe was begun in 1806, on the orders of Napoleon I to honour the victories of his Grande Armée. Inspired by the great arches of antiquity, the monument combines the commemorative with the symbolic and it has always played a major role in the national republican consciousness. Every evening, the flame is lit on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Great War. An exhibition portrays the history and explains its symbolic importance, nationally as well as internationally. The terrace provides superb views both by day and night across the city and its great sweeping avenues.-Opening hours : April to September: from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.; October to March: from 10 a.m. to 10.30 p.m.-Closed: 1st January, 1st May, 8th May (morning), 14th July (morning), 11th November (morning), 25th December-Entry fees: Adults = 9,5 €; Concessions = 6 €; Free admission: 18-25 years old* (citizens of one of the 27 countries of the EU or are non-European permanent residents of France) * excluding school groups

It is definitely worth the trip to the top. We did this and saw a lovely view of Paris so didn't go up the Effiel tower.

Great view from the top . If you are unable to do the steps there is a lift , but you have to ask for it.

Cool perspective, standing underneath thinking about the events and armies that have marched through here. For a fee you can up up to the top, I imagine the view to be pretty at night with all the lights.

Climb to the top of the Arc and get another perspective of Paris from across the Seine. The roof top of the Arc offers another spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower and Paris.

Many steps to reach the top, but a great view awaits. Definitely a must see on any Paris trip. Be sure to watch the video that recaps the history of the Arc from add start to present day.
