An iconic Parisian monument, the Arc de Triomphe gives its many visitors an opportunity to enjoy a unique panoramic view across the Champs Elysées from its terrace.

It was built on the orders of Napoleon I in 1806 in honour of the Grande Armée. Inspired by the great arches of antiquity, this emblematic monument bears the names of battles and generals from the French Revolution and the First Empire. Since 1920, it has been home to the tomb of the unknown soldier, representing all soldiers who have died for France. The rekindling of the flame each evening during a symbolic ceremony is an important daily event.
