What to expect

Welcome to the top of the Arc de Triomphe of Paris, the only highest peak of the Champs-Elysées. At 60 metres above sea level it offers one of the most beautiful views of the Capital. The crossroad of 12 Parisian avenues and desired by Napoleon to celebrate French victories, the Arc de Triomphe has been the rendez-vous of all the tourists since its inauguration in 1836. Located on the far West of the Champs Elysées, it rules over the most beautiful avenue of the world. The Eiffel Tower, the place de la Concorde, the area of La défense: few symbolic monuments of Paris are not visible from this 360° viewpoint at the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle-Etoile.

Useful information

The top of the Arc de Triomphe can be accessed on foot by a staircase of 284 steps or by a lift which allows access to the attic room. From this level, you need to climb 46 more steps to reach the terrace.

The Arc de Triomphe prohibits pushchairs and camera tripods and cameras except when explicitly authorised. This monument is dedicated to the memory of French soldiers: proper attire is requested.
Due to public security reasons, poor weather conditions or ceremonies, the monument can be closed temporarily without having to reimburse its customers.

Accessibility for people with disabilities

The triumphal arch is wheelchair accessible! For people traveling in wheelchairs, access through the tunnel that connects the Champs-Elysees to Place Charles-de-Gaulle Etoile is not possible. You must be dropped off by car directly at the parking place reserved on the roundabout. Access to the museum room is then possible by an elevator which is preceded by three steps (assistance is then necessary). You must inform the Arc de Triomphe staff in advance of your visit so that they can welcome you in the best possible way. Access to the rooftop of the Arc de Triomphe will not be possible because requires the ascent of a a spiral staircase of more than 40 steps. The toilets of the Arc de Triomphe are also not suitable for disabled people.

The ticket put us in right away, and we didn't have to wait in line, which was awesome. The Arc itself is amazing, and provides great views of the city, including right down the Champs Elysees. Be forewarned, it is a lot of steps up and down.

If you are going to Paris don’t miss Arc de Triomphe
January 2nd 2024

Easy to book our visit to Arc de Triomphe, it’s a landmark I had walked by on previous visits to Paris, it was definitely worthwhile. We booked an anytime ticket, there was a fairly long queue that looked a couple of hours long, but we were inside within an hour. The queue gave us the opportunity to see the structure from outside, what an incredible experience. The Arc honours those who fought and died for France during the French Revolution, and Napoleonic Wars, it houses the remains of an unknown soldier.
The climb up the spiral stairway is definitely a test of the calf muscles, but so worth the effort, the views from the top surpass those at the Eiffel Tower, mainly because they are unrestricted, the views down the Champs-Elysées, across to the Eiffel Tower, you’re standing on a central hub where a dozen avenues converge, like a 12 spoke wheel.
Brilliant visit, highly recommended.

The Arc was closed when we had scheduled to go, but Come to Paris told us to go back when it worked with our schedule. We were able to do that and it worked very smoothly. It was a great view at night!

A Must Do but two pieces of advice.
November 18th 2023
An absolute MUST! Only reason for the 4 stars is because of the late opening that messed up our tight schedule as we had to leave and come back. For people whom can not climb stairs easily their is an elevator but very hard to find so make sure to ask! The views are outtt of this world and iconic.

By bus, opt for lines 22, 30, 31, 52 73 and 92. If you opt for the car, don't even try to find a parking space in the neighborhood and opt for a paid car park like the Etoile car park. Foch located at 8 avenue Foch in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. If you have opted for a Open Tour panoramic bus pass, get off at Champs-Elysées station - George V located 116 Champs-Elysées.

What to do around the Arc de Triomphe?

The Arc de Triomphe is located in the eighth arrondissement of Paris facing the Champs-Elysées. There is so much to do before or after visiting the Arc de Triomphe! In the daytime, window shopping at the famous shops along the avenue, a stop at Ladurée to taste its macaroons, a sightseeing cruise on the Bateaux-Mouches by going down the Avenue Georges V to the Pont de l'Alma, an excursion in Open Tour, these hop on hop off tourist buses whose stops are strategically located in the four corners of Paris; at night, an evening in a cabaret, the Lido de Paris or the Crazy Horse, a dinner in a famous brewery or a dinner cruise. Know that, despite appearances, Paris is not huge. For the more adventurous, from the Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tower there are only two small quilometers and just downhill! No less than 3 metro lines and a trainline (RER) serve the Place Charles de Gaulle Etoile and you can easily get to the other side of the city in less than 30 minutes.
