Full description

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.

After reading online travel guides we decided to go after dark to see the lights of the city and the Eiffel Tower. We were happy to have the skip the line pass, showing up late and not sure if there would be a line or not. There wasn’t a line but the pass was still a little cheaper than from the official website. When we were there in sept 2022, the Eiffel Tower would sparkle on the hour for several minutes. If you can plan your trip to be at the top of the tower (roughly 300 steps) it is quite spectacular. Regardless I think the skip the line pass allows for confidence in being able to arrive when you want and not waste time waiting as I’m sure there can be long lines during peak hours.

Thé steps are challenging, but the view is so good orthoaz it. If you hold your camera tight, there is enough room to stick it through the barrier, and get an uninterrupted shot.(I wouldn’t have thought of that without seeing someone do it) My only regret is that there isn’t some glass enclosure that rises a bit higher, so it would be possible to view the 5 avenues come into the Arc. But that’s what a postcard is for. :-)

This was a “self serve” situation that afforded us quick access to the stairway. We still had to go thru security and walk the stairs. Fortunately the lines were very short and quick. I did notice the ticket line was long, so I think that’s where we saved our time. We went before noon on a clear day.
