Arc de Triomphe

A French national symbol built in 1806 under the direction of Napoleon, the Arc de Triomphe is the most imposing arch in the world. Culminating at more than 50 metres high, it is located in the eighth arrondissement of Paris, on the Place de l' Etoile and at the end of the avenue des Champs-Elysées. Every evening at 6:30 p. m. the flame of the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, nestled under the arc, is revived. At its summit accessible by a staircase of 284 steps, the Arc de Triomphe offers visitors a magnificent panoramic view of Paris.
