The Basics

The Arc de Triomphe is one of Paris’ most visited monuments. Many travelers admire the famous landmark only from ground level, either independently or as part of a sightseeing tour. However, it’s well worth climbing to the arch’s viewing terrace at 164 feet (50 meters) to enjoy sweeping views of the city and its top sights, including Sacré-Coeur, the Eiffel Tower, the Grande Arche de la Defense, and the tree-bordered Champs-Elysees, which leads all the way down to the Louvre.

Unfortunately the Arc was being set up for the Christophe exhibition in a week so there was scaffolding and fencing at the top of the monument. Nevertheless I was able to take some great pictures at the top and there were few other people to hinder the view.

Arc de Triomphe Skip The Line + Rooftop Access
Long walk up a narrow staircase so wear appropriate shoes. The view is okay but its crowded at the top. Make sure the tour company sends you the ticket with the QR code. You won't be able to enter without it

Arc de Triomphe and Seine River Cruise
This was a great double - an hours boat cruise past Notre Dame and other sites such as pont neuf, and the Louvre Palace. Next to the Arc de Triomphe, and the stairs were a stiff climb but manageable, and well worth it.

Location access was good, place was clean and we learned the importance of this Arc in history (French military victories and remembers all those who have fought on behalf of France. The steps to the top of the arch, provides a superb view to Paris.

Arc de Triomphe and Seine River Cruise
Although the weather was wet and the wind cold, I would do this again and especially at night. The climb up the 200+ stairs is worth every ache of the legs, to get the views and atmospheric feeling you get looking from the top of one of Paris’s most iconic landmarks. Book your tickets in advance and safe yourself the queue in the underpass. Then when you have finished on top take in the splendour under the Arc and visit the eternal flame and the grave of the unknown solider.

Christmas in Paris: The Louvre, Champs Elysees & Arc de Triomphe

Paris at Christmas with The Louvre, Champs Elysees & Arc de Triomphe
Patricia, our guide, made the Louvre come alive! The depth of her knowledge is phenomenal. She could answer ANY question we had. Our three hours in the Louvre went SO fast and I left with a wealth of information. To bad that I didn't have Patricia as my prof in my college Intro to Art class. Highly recommend this trip.

it was a nice view from the top of Arc de Triomphe. Going up the stairs is quiet difficult for unfit people, but going down the stairs is alot easier.

Arc de Triomphe Skip the Line Access Ticket with Terrace
When you see the Arch of Constantine and the Arch of Titus you expect the Arc de Triomphe to look similar. I couldn't be more wrong, the sheer size of the Arc de Triomphe is breathtaking. Enjoy the "crazy" traffic flowing around the arch as you sit outside waiting to climb to the top. Once you're at the top you'll have amazing views of Paris and probably the best view of the Eiffel Tower.

Excellent view. Worth it. As a first visit of the day it was perfect.i highly recommend but you need to be for for the stairs.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Use the pedestrian underpasses beneath Place Charles de Gaulle to reach the arch. Do not attempt to cross the roundabout—Paris’ busiest traffic circle—on foot.

  • The viewing terrace is not wheelchair accessible. An elevator goes part way up the arch, but visitors must still climb 46 steps to access the top.

  • Book skip-the-line tickets in advance to beat the crowds.

  • Be sure to bring a camera to capture the Parisian skyline.

When to Get There

Visibility is best during summer, when skies are most likely to be clear. The best views can be had at dusk, when the cream-stone cityscape appears to glow gold under the light of the setting sun. Sunset is, however, also the busiest time. To avoid the crowds, go earlier in the day.
