Built well before Paris's famous Eiffel Tower after the Battle of Austerlitz, the Arc de Triomphe celebrates the victory of Napoleon I's Grande Armée. Almost 50 metres high, 45 metres long and 22 metres wide, you can get fabulous views from the top, down the Champs Elysees, to the Eiffel Tower.

Your guide will also show you the tomb of the unknown soldier buried underneath the arch with its eternal flame.
