Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments of Paris!

Visit the Arc de Triomphe by going up to the observatory.
You will get a unique view of the Champs Elysée by day and night, it’s totally worth it.
Also, you’ll find a museum up there.
Beneath the arch, you will also find the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Each evening at 6:30pm the flame is rekindled, and veterans lay wreaths decorated in red, white and blue near the flickering flame.
The purpose of this flame is to recall the sacrifice of unknown French soldiers who gave their life during World War I.
