It is a symbol of the city and of Napoleon Empire. Apart from its symbolic meaning however I couldn't find anything special in this monument ( I also got inside it and climbed on the top).

The Arc de Triomphe (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 honours 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 the arch in the middle of the Place Charles de Gaulle, commemorating the French Revolution and Napoleanic Wars. The tomb of the unknown soldier (World War I) is at the bottom.

The Arc de Triomphe is often copied but there is nothing like the original. It is surrounded by a huge traffic circle and one end of the famous Champ d'Elysees. The only way to reach this monument is to go underground. You don't have to pay to go up but it's worthwhile to see the major streets from a high vantage point.

Another famous landmark in Paris. It's where many of the city roads leads to this circle spot. The entrance to the Arc is through an underground passage. It's a small spiral staircase leading up to the top. There's a small museum and gift shop inside the tunnel in the Arc. At the top you'll have a nice 360 degree view of Paris. It does get crowded and the staircase is narrow. It's not for those that are claustrophobic and can not handle being in a crowded area.

Yes, it's in the middle of the biggest retail/commercial district in Paris, but I can still feel the history pounding in my ears and heart of what this Arc has meant to so many throughout its life. Two of history's most notorious characters, Napoleon and Hitler, were certainly impressed by it.Recommended for:

One of the most popular tourist destinations in Paris, Arc de Triomphe is a an integral part of the history of France. This forms the center of the largest trafiic roundabout in the world. The entrance is accessible by a tunnel from across the streets or from the metro station. If you have the stamina, do climb to the top for the maginificient views.Recommended for:

This looks a lot closer than it is from the Concord Circle (wear good shoes if you're going to walk). If you go around Christmas time, as I did, you will walk by many places selling various funnel cakes and hot chocolate.
