Arc de Triomphe, how to go on top

Arc de TriompheThe Arc de Triomphe is one of the most important historical monuments of Paris. It is also known as Triumphal Arch of the Star. That is because its full name is Arc de Triomphe de l’Etoile. The Triumphal Arch of the Star was strongly wanted by Napoleon Bonaparte.

It is a monument that celebrates all the people who fought for French Revolution. The tradition continued also after World War I. Beneath Arc de Triomphe you can see the Tomb of the Unkown Soldier too.

But why it is so beautiful to see? The Arch de Triomphe is one of the attraction of Paris because when you go there you can go on the rooftop and admire the city from above. Plus, it is a very architecture masterpiece too.

History is interesting but how about Place de l’Etoile and Champs-Elysees? They are very close to the Arch!

You can go there by metro or on foot. It depends on where you are staying in Paris. Anyway, I want to recommend the definiive ticket that makes very easily to fully enjoy this attraction of Paris.

Arc de Triomphe, the ticket to go on top

The ticket that I prefer to buy when I want to go on the Arc de Triomphe is online – you can buy it here.

It is an electronic voucher that you can also print if you prefer. It is always valid and there is an istant confirmation! Plus, if you change your mind or your plans, you can always cancel it. When I find occasion like this one, I am glad because it gives me a sense of freedom. The possibility to buy a convenient ticket and change my mind if I don’t want to go there anymore.

I hate wasting my time. That’s why the ticket I recommend is a skip the line pass!

When you go on the top of the Arch de Triomphe, you can admire the city from above and admire the monument itself. Plus, as I mentioned, you can also see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It is a smaller attraction but very important too. This area of the city is so fascinating. Do not miss the chance to explore it!
