This magnificent structure situated in the center of Paris is a must see. Easy access via train and bus. Good shopping in close proximity. Nice spot for taking a photo from the middle man. Getting very busy in high season.

From the top you have a lovely view of the shopping area and the interesting wagon wheel layout of the vicinity . Views were pretty st night with the sun setting .. there are close to 300 stairs involved in the climb to the top...More
There are probably so many such commemorative tower & gates in the world that the biggest charm about this one is that it is the trend setter. Carvings are good & photo opportunities are round the day (you may just have to change your angle)....More
Second time here and both times the elevator wasn't working so be prepared to climb some steps. We waited at the top until 10:00 p.m. and had excellent views of the Eiffel tower as the light came on.
Despite the crowds that surround this monument, the Arc by itself and in arrangement with Champs Elysees is a stunning piece of art. Go up the breath-taking (literally) spiral steps to the top for one of the best views of Paris - night or day.
Loved seeing this national treasure - and I walked to the top - cannot believe I did it but glad I did. The view of Paris is breathtaking.
