This arch is in front of the entrance for the Lourve. It's hard to miss and has some cool looking statues on top. It is much easier to access than the Arch du Triumphe because it isn't located at the center of one of the...More

This is a short walk from when you leave Musee de Louvre and is the smaller Arc's in Paris. This was placed here as the King wanted to have one closer which he could see. Really detailed and worth a pic!

Smaller than the Arc de Triomphe, but just as beautiful! I particularly love the horses atop this arch. Definitely worthy of a visit and photo op!

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
