Versailles wasn't built in a day! In fact, the palace was constructed over a period of 50 years by the Sun King, Louis XIV. Following his lead, his successors also wanted to leave their mark, adding extra features until the revolution intervened. Today, Versailles is a wonderful memorial to three centuries of French royal history.

Why Visit the Grande Arche de la Défense Roof


At the top of La Grande Arche, you will discover what is now the largest terrace in Paris. A 100-meter-long promenade bridge crosses the building in the continuity of the historical axis.

From there, you can see the great monuments that have shaped the identity of the capital, from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. But it is also a view of the largest open-air museum in France with 69 monumental pieces exhibited on the esplanade of La Défense, including Calder's Stabile and César's Thumb.


Upon your arrival, impressive white marble stairs will face you, where, in good weather, hundreds of people gather for a moment of relaxation.

After climbing the steps, you can enjoy a spectacular ascent and a unique panorama of Paris and beyond. Thanks to the panoramic elevators of the Arch, a stunning view to the top and a truly singular experience are offered.

More than 100 meters of height are thus covered in a sensational way! A dizzying ascent around towers designed by the greatest French and international architects.
