Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Arc de Triomphe:

"See the Notre Dame Cathedral, The Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay; on a sunny day, go to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica & go to the Place du Tertre (to see the artists painting the Basilica); walk up the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe; walk around the Luxembourg Garden."  See More

"The must visits places if you only have 3 days its the obvious choices: Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, The Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral Gift Shop, Sacré-Cœur Basilica, Concorde and so on."  See More

"Hello! I have a quick guide for Paris with things you can see and do right here: !"  See More

"You will be able to see sights such as Arc de Triomphe and Place de la Concorde by exploring on foot."  See More

"visit Eiffel tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre dam, Versailles's Palace and Strasbourg."  See More

"Day 2 Versailles and Arc de Triomphe which is open late and has another great view of Paris, the Arc usually has really long lines and the Pass works great here."  See More

"You can get a two (consecutive) day pass and visit The Louvre in the morning, have lunch, visit the Musée d'Orsay in the afternoon (pass almost paid for now); you can go up on the towers of Notre Dame Cathedral, up on top of the Arc de Triomphe, see the Musee Rodin and a number of other museums, not sure of the Eiffel Tower."  See More

"Also, don't pay to climb the Eiffel Tower (very expensive/crowded) and instead, climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe."  See More

"Other opportunities for exercise would be walking up to the towers of Notre Dame Cathedral and walking up to the top of the Arc de Triomphe."  See More

"Arc de Triomphe-no lift-you have to be able to walk up lots of stairs."  See More

"For Paris, it depends on the ages and interests of the group but I always get a Paris Museum Pass and go to The Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, the Arc de Triomphe, Versailles and then whatever else fits in the trip."  See More

":) From there you can walk down the Champs-Élysées towards the Arc de Triomphe."  See More

"Landmarks Notre-Dame de Paris, Luxembourg Garden, Jardin Tuileries, Arc de Triomphe, Basilique du Sacre-Coeur and Eiffel Tower."  See More

"Here are a few ideas: Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame de Paris, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Montmartre, Sacré-Cœur Basilica, Opera Garnier, Tuileries, Luxembourg Garden, Pont Alexandre III, Ile Saint-Louis,."  See More

"Instagram - go to the top of the Arc de Triomphe where you can see all of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower."  See More

"The Arc de Triomphe is another one of those monuments that’s great to go inside and climb, but it’s honestly just as impressive from across the street and is definitely worth visiting."  See More

"Stroll along the La Seine at dusk, Quartier Du Marais and Montmartre or visit the Arc de Triomphe at 6."  See More

"Walk up the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe and down Avenue Kléber to the Eiffel Tower."  See More

"When my wife and I first went to Paris in 1989, we were much younger, and we saw many of the top sights in 4 days. I had done a lot of research and we had a good idea of what we wanted to see and do and where they were located. We got up relatively early, had breakfast and went sight-seeing all day until about 6:00 p.m., and then went out for the evening. As Lauren commented, it was exhausting, but we saw a lot. On many subsequent trips we have stayed up to two weeks at a time, and we are returning for another 2 weeks in June. I would say that you should allow at least 4 days, and a week is much better and more relaxing. What you should not miss depends on what interests you most. If you are interested in museums, the The Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay are obvious choices. You can save a lot of time and money buying a Museum Pass, which allows you to get into many museums and monuments for no charge and you avoid most of the lines. Buy them for 2, 4 or 6 consecutive days. ."  See More

"A good way to start you first day would be to start at the Notre-Dame de Paris and walk your way to the The Louvre, Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower in a couple of hours just to get a feel for the city and catch the sites."  See More

"We stayed in the Opéra district, right beside the Palais-Royal and the The Louvre We walked a lot and got to see Notre-Dame de Paris Eiffel Tower Quartier Du Marais Champs-Élysées We also did the touristy thing and took a boat ride on the Seine (which is useful for seeing a lot in a short time) I would recommend a visit to the Arc de Triomphe at 6pm."  See More

"I love the views from on top of the Arc de Triomphe and Notre-Dame de Paris, a bonus for the kids are the gargoyles on top which they might have seen in the Disney movie."  See More

", Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, The Panthéon, Grand Palais, Les Invalides, Place Vendôme (and browse all the haute jeweler for some eye candy!"  See More

"For example, you can start from Arc de Triomphe and walk down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées when you arrive at the Le Grand Palais, which stands in front of Le Petit Palais (you can enter and have a look at it, it's really nice) you can turn toward the river and see the beautiful Pont Alexandre III and keep walking on the "quais" to see Musée d'Orsay or you go back to Avenue des Champs-Élysées and you keep walking towards Place de la Concorde, which is beautiful, then you just cross the street and you are at the Jardin des Tuileries which is the park of Louvre Museum."  See More

"I also suggest skipping the line to get to the top of the Eiffel Tower and instead going to the top of the Arc de Triomphe it has spectacular views and your pass will let you skip the lines!"  See More

"The Champs Elysées with at the end Arc de Triomphe."  See More

"The view is actually as good from the Arc de Triomphe or Notre Dame Cathedral, but the sheer scale of the 325-metre iron structure is well worth seeing up close."  See More
