Arc de Triomphe Ticket

The Arc de Triomphe is a Neoclassical version of the ancient Roman triumphal arch. With a height of fifty meters, this is one of the most visited monuments in Paris. The main highlight of this landmark is the view from the top arch. You can see a dozen avenues radiating out into the City of Light from the top of the arch.

Following his victory at Austerlitz, Napoleon commissioned the Arc de Triomphe, inspired by the great arches of ancient Rome. Sadly, he did not live to see it completed.

During your visit, you will also see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, situated at the base of the arch, which pays tribute to French soldiers who died during World War I, with an eternal flame that is rekindled every evening at 6.30 PM. There is also an exhibition explaining the monument’s symbolic importance.
