Why Visit Arc de Triomphe?

arc de triomphe tickets

Architecture

One’s first impression of Arc de Triomphe is of awe; measuring 164 ft in height and 148 ft in width, it towers over the city’s landscape and is prominently visible from a vast distance. It follows a neo-classical design and is said to have been partially inspired by the Roman Forum’s Arch of Titus. The most prominent highlight that sets Arc de Triomphe apart are the engraved names of fallen warriors on the inside surface of the arch. At the bottom, you will find the Tomb of the Fallen Soldier where a flame of remembrance is rekindled every evening.
