Along with the Eiffel Tower, the two-century-old Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris and a key place of major national events.
Wanted by Napoleon in 1806, the Arc de Triomphe was inaugurated in 1836 by French king, Louis-Philippe. It honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars.
Although this arch doesn’t stand as high as the Eiffel Tower, its views are stunning too.
