This is right next to the Louvre. It is a great picture spot. The views of Eiffel tower are great. Nice place to relax

See this and you know you're in Paris.It's worth going up to the top if time permits as the view is surprisingly good, but even from the ground it is one of the most famous sights Paris,just at the end of the Champs D'Elysee

This triumphal arch is derived from the triumphal arch of the Roman Empire particularly that of Septimus Severus of Rome. It was built to commemorate Napoleon's military victories. This arch in Place du Carrousel is smaller than that of the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile....More

It was a great experience! Climbing up the top of the Arc is worthwhile. You can see all of Paris and access doesn't take long, not crowded towards late afternoon.

This is one of five famous arches in Paris being constructed 1806-1808. It is near the entrance to the Tuilleries Gardens, and the other end is close to the Louvre Museum. It is not to be confused with the other Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
