What to See at Arc de Triomphe?

The grand structure of Arc de Triomphe in Paris has many distinct features. If you are planning a visit, here’s what you can expect to come across.

Eternal Flame

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I is located beneath the Arc de Triomphe. It has the first eternal flame lit in Western and Eastern Europe since the Vestal Virgins' fire was extinguished, having been interred on Armistice Day 1920. This eternal flame can still be witnessed by visitors and has inspired the eternal flame beside John F. Kennedy’s grave.

Architecture

The ancient Roman Arch of Constantine was the inspiration for architect Jean François Thérèse Chalgrin's design of Arc de Triomphe. Each of the Arc's pillars bears one of four huge sculptural reliefs: François Rude's The Departure of the Volunteers in 1792, Cortot's Napoléon's Triumph of 1810, and Etex's Resistance of 1814 and Peace of 1815. The Arc de Triomphe’s simple design and massive proportions are indicative of late-eighteenth-century romantic neoclassicism.

On the ascent to the rooftop of the Arc de Triomphe, there are a total of 284 steps. From this vantage point, you can see a dozen avenues, including the famous Champs-Élysées.

Top Attractions in Paris

Along with the Arc de Triomphe, there are plenty of rich cultural experiences to try in the city. Here’s our recommendation of top things to do in Paris.

Palace of Versailles

This majestic and gigantic chateau was built in the mid-17th century during the reign of Louis XIV to project the ultimate power of the French king among magnificently landscaped formal gardens. The edifice took 30,000 laborers and troops to build, and the expenses nearly depleted the kingdom's treasury. Under the direction of architect Louis Le Vau, construction on the Palace of Versailles began in 1661. Book Versailles Palace tickets at Headout.

Orsay Museum 

The Orsay Museum's richly colored walls make impressionist and post-impressionist art by painters such as Renoir, Gauguin, Cézanne, and Degas appear to be hung in a private home. The Orsay Museum is an exemplar of art nouveau architecture, but the star of the show is France's prized national collection of masterpieces from 1848 to 1914. Book Orsay Museum tickets.

Louvre Museum

The Louvre Museum in Paris is known for both its striking appearance as well as its art collection. The Louvre has precious antiquities, as well as pieces of art and artisanship from all throughout Europe.

Seine River Cruise

If you are wondering how to enhance the visual and aural appeal of the City of Lights, a Seine River Cruise is the answer.
