What's the best time to visit the Arc de Triomphe?

Peak Season vs Low Season

Peak Season vs Low Season

Peak Season: April - September
Low Season: November - March

The best time to visit the Arc de Triomphe is from April to September. However, this is also when the crowds are the largest. The weather during this period is more pleasant, and the monument is open longer compared to the low season.

On the other hand, visiting the monument during the low season, from November to March, is recommended if you want to avoid crowds and enjoy a more hassle-free visit. The winter season in Paris is beautiful, and you are likely to save money on flights, accommodation, and food during this time.

Weekday vs Weekend

Weekday vs Weekend

If you want to witness the beautiful evening view from the Arc de Triomphe rooftop, it's best to visit in the early morning instead, as it can get crowded in the evenings. The shimmering lights of the Champs-Elysées and the Eternal Flame of Remembrance are a visual treat post-sunset. The Arc de Triomphe attracts the most visitors during weekends. To avoid crowds, it is recommended to plan your visit during the weekdays, especially from Tuesday to Thursday, when the Arc is least crowded.

How long should I spend at the Arc de Triomphe?

Visitors typically spend 45 minutes to 1.5 hours exploring the Arc de Triomphe. However, you can spend longer if you opt for a guided tour of the Arc de Triomphe. When visiting, don't miss the Arc de Triomphe rooftop, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Arc de Triomphe Museum, and the inscriptions on the facades.
