L’Arc de Triomphe :

L’Arc de Triomphe Napoleon's Triumphal Arch The arch was made by Napoleon in 1806 to celebrate his victories, but he was banished before the arch was completed. In fact, it wasn't completed until 1836 during the reign of Louis-Philippe. The Arc de Triomphe is engraved with names of generals who commanded French troops during Napoleon's regime.


. Place Charles de Gaulle The arch is located at the end of the Champs-Elysées, in the middle of the Place Charles de Gaulle, a large circular square from which no less than 12 streets emanate. The streets are named after French military leaders.


. Observation deck The top of the arch features a viewing platform from where you have great views of La Defense, the Champs-Elysées and the Sacré-Coeur. Make sure you take one of the underpasses to the arch, it is too dangerous to try and cross the street. There is no elevator in the arch, so be prepared to walk up 234 steps.


. The Arc de Triomphe is 49m high, 45m wide, 22m deep. It is covered by sculptures including La Marseillaise by Rude. The names of 128 battles fought by the French Republic and Napoleon are written on the walls under the vault alongside the names of the generals who fought them.
