Commissioned by Napoleon almost 200 years ago as a tribute to his soldiers, the Arc De Triomphe, in the heart of Paris, France, is still today the most important war memorial to the French. The Arc resides in the middle of one of the biggest round-a-bout roads in the world with 12 of Paris’ major streets, including the Champs Elysees, leading into the Place Charles De Gaulle and the Arc. In a city filled with amazing sights, monuments and structures, the Arc still stands out as one of the icons of not only the city, but the country of France.
Climb the stairs to the top of the Arc for amazing views over the city.

An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch simply because I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this issue here on your internet site.
Worth climbing for the views.
