Arc de Triomphe, Paris

The Arc de Triomphe Paris is one of the most monumental triumphal arches in France. It is located at the western end of the Champs-Élysées, at the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle. The triumphal arch is in honor of those who fought for France, particularly, those who fought during the Napoleonic Wars. Engraved on the inside and at the top of the arch are all of the names of the generals and wars fought. There are also inscriptions in the ground underneath the vault of the arch which include the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I where  the Memorial Flame burns.

We climbed the 284 steps to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and  the view was just breathtaking, especially in the sunlight. If you’re in Paris, it is definitely worth a visit.
