What to expect

Welcome to the top of the Arc de Triomphe, 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.

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.
