Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

2. Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

The Arc de Triomphe is a Neoclassical take on the ancient Roman triumphal arch style. Fifty meters tall, the view from the platform atop the arch is well worth the hike. See the dozen Parisian avenues radiating out from the arch into the City of Light. Paris is one of the most fascinating places in the world and you will find yourself right at its center. Inspired by the great arches of ancient Rome, Napoleon commissioned the Arc de Triomphe shortly after his victory at Austerlitz. Unfortunately, he never lived to see its completion. At the base of the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died in World War I. Behold the eternal flame that is rekindled at 6.30 PM each evening. In addition, there is a must-see exhibition that explains the symbolic importance of this monument. The view from the top of the arch is worth climbing the 284 stairs. From your privileged position, survey all of Paris. Unlike the obligatory Eiffel Tower trip, getting into the Arc de Triomphe is an effort not all tourists undertake. Plus, with skip-the-line tickets, you'll hardly have to break stride on your way in.

What people are saying about Paris

The Louvre is a must visit in Paris. It was great to have the timed option and not have to worry about queuing for tickets. We went to the meeting point and could see a board with our time on and it was clear where to go. There was still a small wait to get through security but it didn’t take long. I was on a trip with my sister and we had made a list of the items we wanted to see in the museum - The Mona Lisa (obviously), Venus de Milo, Victory, etc. Even if you don’t have anything in particular you want to see it’s still a fabulous experience just walking around.

Cool experience in Paris. I would recommend checking out the Catacombs and buying skip the line tickets in advance, as same day tickets can get sold out. The whole trip took us around an hour and you get an audio guide included in your ticket.

Very easily we found our way to get into Luvre within 10 min. There was a queue of course but we visited Thursday so queue was short

Bilietus nusipirkome iki3aukšto, mūsų gidė Monika nuvedė iki 2 aukšto, tada patys pakilome iki galo. Džiaugėmės turu :)

Highly recommended! Everything went well. We didn't have to queue anywhere! Great experience!
