Address Arc de Triomphe Pl. Charles de Gaulle, 75008 Paris, France

Completed in 1836, the Arc de Triomphe dominates the Place Charles-de-Gaulle square and is one of the most famous symbols of Paris.

Commissioned by Emperor Napoleon I in 1806 to perpetuate the memory of the victories of the French army in the Napoleonic wars, the Arc de Triomphe was born after thirty years of work. Designed by the architect Jean-François-Thérèse Chalgrin, it houses the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and is inspired by the Roman triumphal arches. Decorated with various sculptures, high reliefs and bas-reliefs in particular, it has been the scene of many events and other commemorations over the years. It is open to the public. It is therefore possible to reach its summit to admire a 360 degree view of Paris.
