What to expect

From the top of the ultra-modern Grande Arche de la Défense, you’ll take in a breathtaking, panoramic view over the whole of the City of Light. The Grand Arche is literally a giant arch, 35 storeys high, housing offices and galleries, opened in 1989 on the bicentenary of the French Revolution and aligned with the historic axis of Paris. Book with Ticketeaser to take the glass lift to the top and stroll on the promenade bridge across the top of the Grande Arche. From there you’ll see the Arc de Triomphe, the tower at Montparnasse and of course the Eiffel Tower among many other landmarks. A new photojournalism gallery regularly showcases the work of the world’s finest camera-carrying reporters.
