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.
