Arc de Triomphe Paris

Together with the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe is one of the world's most well-known Landmarks.

The arch was originally ordered by Napoleon in 1806 but was not completed until 1836 during the reign of Louis-Philippe.

After the first World War the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers was installed beneath the arc.

From the top you have a great view of Paris and can look down the Champs-Élysées with it's luxuary Hotels and restaurants.
