Visit the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées
The Arc de Triomphe marks the westernmost point of Paris’ most famed boulevard, the Champs-Élysées. The full name of this iconic arc is The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, a stunning Neoclassical piece that was built over 30 years between 1806 and 1836 to commemorate those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary War, and in the Napoleonic Wars.
