Arc de Triomphe
Description need for Arc de Triomphe
Address: Place Charles de Gaulle, 75008 Paris, France
The Arc de Triomphe is accessible by the RER and Métro, with an exit at the Charles de Gaulle—Étoile station. Because of heavy traffic on the roundabout of which the Arc is the center, it is recommended that pedestrians use one of two underpasses located at the Champs Élysées and the Avenue de la Grande Armée. A lift will take visitors almost to the top – to the attic, where there is a small museum which contains large models of the Arc and tells its story from the time of its construction. Another 46 steps remain to climb in order to reach the top, the terrasse, from where one can enjoy a panoramic view of Paris.
