Make sure you visit this place at both day and night to get the full Paris feeling. Lots of steps to the top if you want to climb.

We walked along the Champs-Elysees looking at the shops then used the under road tunnel to get to the Arc de Triomphe. Stunning structure and lots of people watching - saw a couple get engaged while they were there

Walked to the top up steep spiral staircase. Well worth the effort for great 360 degrees view of Paris. Plus it was free.

After walking the 250+ steps to the top of Arc de Triomphe it was worth it to see the views and read the history (although it would have been nice to be told the lift was not working before we purchased the tickets)

After seeing this structure in films and history books it was a fantastic opportunity to see it first hand. The intricacies of the monument are informative as well as eye catching!

A historical arch it's in the middle of the road many tourists also just walking distance from the champ elysees.

This is an amazingly beautiful monument, completely spoiled by the crowds. I understand Paris is a tourist city (I myself was a tourist), but it was just impossible to get close enough for a good view. I'm fairly short (and had a 6yo with me)...More

You don’t want to miss this classic Paris site! Very close to the Eiffel Tower and at the head of the Champs-Elysées. As an FYI -the names on the Arc de Triomphe are the names of the French victories and generals involved with the Napoleonic...More

I bought the skip the line ticket to go up the Arc de Triumph and was delighted I did as even in October the queue was very long. It’s a hard climb up 202 steps but worth it. The top of the monument has fantastic...More

The terrace is very big and basically goes around the whole top of the Arc de Triomphe. I don’t know if you can hold private events there. I guess it’s the best if you inquire with the official website of the monument.

We bought them onsite. It was not busy at all. Maybe they changed their ticketing service.
