♫ "Aux Champs Elysees ♫ Review with images

AdvantagesGood view...

Disadvantages...but not the best

"...famous sights in Paris: the Arc de Triomphe. It was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 in order to commemorate his victories, but wasn't finished until 1836. It is 50 meters tall and 45 meters wide. I always thought the Arc de Triomphe was nice to look at, but I had never bothered visited it… until last summer. I had taken my boyfriend with me to show him around Paris, as he had never been to France before. I took him to see all the famous places ..." Read review

Treck To The Top of The Triomphe!

AdvantagesGreat Views, Free for Under 25's, Historically Interesting

Disadvantages284 Stairs to the top!

"...a visit to the beautiful Arc De Triomphe. The Arc De Triomphe is located on the Champs Elysees which is the large main avenue in Paris, very famous for its beauty and array for designer shops. To be honest I didn’t think too much of it, but it was pleasant enough. The Arc is actually situated in the centre of “Place de l'Etoile” which is a large 12 exit roundabout. It’s very busy and the roads aren’t marked so it’s an accident hotspot, but very ..." Read review

AdvantagesLess crowded than the Eiffel Tower, Great Views

DisadvantagesThirsty Work, not

"...this review is about the Arc de Triomphe, so I will stop rambling now. The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 after his victory in Austerlitz, regarded as his greatest victory of all time and destroyed the armies of enemies Russia and Austria. The arc was not finished until 1836, after Napoleon's reign had finished and indeed after his death in 1821. The structure was designed by Jean François Thérèse Chalgrin and completed during ..."

Arc du Triomphe - nice view

Advantagesquite cheap, panoramic views of Paris, interesting attraction

Disadvantagesv.busy,

"...views over Paris and the Arc de Triomphe is no exception. It is one of the most famous monuments in Paris and fronts many postcards. The Arc de Triomphe is at the western end of the Champs-Elysees; a sight in itself. The arch is a tribute of respect to those that have fought for France, particularly during the Napoleonic wars. It was designed by Jean Chalgrin in 1806; his work was taken on by Huyon in 1811 when Chalgrin sadly died. However, the ..." Read review
