Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe, standing proudly in the circular Place Charles-de-Gaulle at the top of the Champs Elysées, is a symbol of the French nation. It stands at the crossroads of the magnificent axial avenues defining Paris, and honors all those who fought for France, particularly in the Napoleonic Wars. Written on the arch are all the wars fought by France and the names of the French generals involved. It is also the location of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier commemorating those lost in World War I.

The arch itself is huge: 160 feet (50 meters) tall, 148 feet (45 meters) wide, and 72 feet (22 meters) deep. It's so large that after World War I ended, a joyous pilot flew his biplane through the Arc de Triomphe.

Practical Info

Located at the top end of the Champs Elysées, you can't miss the Arc de Triomphe if you walk up from the Louvre. By train it is located at station Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile on Metro lines 1,2 and 6 or RER line A.
