- Arc de TriompheNov 14, 2013
The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle (originally named Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. The Arc de Triomphe honors those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces. Beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.

The Arc de Triomphe is one of those monuments I wish I had known more about before I had seen it. I knew little about Napoleon, whose victories it celebrates. Neither did I know about the Nazis, who marched beneath its barrel vaults or the liberating allied armies who took it back four years later. I had not yet seen the Arch of Constantine, one of the closest models for the Arc de Triomphe. Nor had I seen the Quadrigga horses at St Marks in Venice, which Napoleon temporarily carted back to France after sacking the thousand year republic so that he could adorn his monument. No, what impressed me at the age of 16 was the dozen or so streets that junction around the arch, creating a perfect vehicular anarchy.

Every film worth its' salt that has Paris as a backdrop has to, by Parisian Film Board decree, have at least one shot of the Arc de Triomphe in it. Otherwise, no permit will be issued. Seriously, though IMHO, the Arc de Triomphe has got to be the world most pompously beautiful roundabout in the world.

A photographers dream!! Iconic and at once recognizable. I always need to glimpse the Arc de Triomphe when in Paris.

It's a must to see, when visiting Paris. A tribute to the greatness of Napoleon (but when it was finished, he already was imprisoned on Elba). Also: the traffic around the Arc is something to behold!

Some of the best views of Paris can be seen from the top of the Arc de Triomphe. You can see straight down the Champs Elysees, you can see the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre! Its located right at the end of the Champs Elysees, so you can do a little sight seeing then do a bit of shopping!

The Arc de Triomphe is a famous landmark that is towards the end of the Champs-Elysees, Paris's largest and longest boulevard. From central Paris, I would suggest walking along the Champs-Elysees until you approach the Arc de Triomphe. You'll get a chance to see shops, restaurants, and get to do lots of people watching.Recommended for
