The Arc de Triomphe of Paris

From the top of the Arc de Triomphe, you get the best views of Paris!

Isnt she beautiful!

“Wanted by Napoleon in 1806, the Arc de Triomphe was inaugurated in 1836 by French king, Louis-Philippe, who dedicated it to the armies of the Revolution and the Empire. The Unknown Soldier was buried at the base of the arch in 1921. The flame of remembrance is rekindled every day at 18:30.”The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Eternal Flame at the base.

Since Paris is the perfect city to walk around and enjoy, there are not many places I would pay to get into, but this is one that is absolutely worth it. Tickets to enter the Arc de Triomphe and climb to the top are €12 or less. Visit the website for more info:

Love the spiral staircase!
