Arch of Triumph

Local nameArc de Triomphe
LocationParis, France

This 50 meters tall Neoclassical arch is dedicated to the soldiers who lost their lives during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. Located at the end of the Champs-Élysées, it is one of the most iconic sights in Paris.

It was finished in 1836 and was inspired by the ancient Roman arches. The square where it stands marks the meeting point of 12 grand city boulevards and for that reason, the place was formerly known as "Place de l'Étoile" (which translates as the "Star Square"). Today the square is called Place Charles de Gaulle.

The top terrace is accessible to the public and it offers magnificent views of the city. You can take part in self-guided and guided tours in various languages.
