At the intersection of the 12 main roads of the Charles de Gaulle Square (formerly known as the Star Plaza), the most famous is the Champs Elysées that leads to the Place de la Concorde in the southeast. 

On the left is the symbol of Paris - the Eiffel Tower, the French Military Academy and the Honorary Military Academy. If you want to take a full picture of the Star Square, you can only climb the Arc de Triomphe, or aerial photography to complete the wall on the two sides of the Arc de Triomphe. There are four groups of large reliefs with the theme of war: "exit", "triumph", "peace" and the "resistance." The arches are engraved with the names of 386 generals and 96 large-scale battles and the French Revolutionary War following the Napoleonic Expedition. The Arc de Triomphe is also engraved with the names of 558 Napoleonic Empire heroes.

Arc de Triomphe de l’Etoile
In addition to the Eiffel Tower, another place in Paris where one must check in is of course the Arc de Triomphe. The full name of the Arc de Triomphe is the Arc de triomphe de l'Étoile (Arch of the Lion’s Triumph), and was built in commemoration of the 1806 victory of Napoleon. 12 of the main streets of Paris converge at the Arc de Triomphe and fan out in all directions. In fact many times when leaving Paris you will pass through this arch, and on circling this huge monument you will be moved.
In addition to being able to view the Arc de Triomphe, it can also be climbed. The top of the Arc de Triomphe is a classic spot for taking pictures of the Eiffel Tower.
If you want to enter the arch, you must enter from Champs-Élysées Avenue or another underground entrance. On the surface there is no way to enter. Tickets cost 12 Euros, and you can also use your Paris Pass. That day was not a day I planned to buy a pass, but on seeing the cloudy sky and being able to see the setting sun, I was stirred to go up.
After buying a ticket, visitors line up before the elevator that goes up. However the elevator only goes to the museum in the Arc de Triomphe, and the visitor still has to climb up several levels. Trust me all of this is worth it.
Under the front gate of the Arc de Triomphe there lies the tomb of the unknown soldier. As a result under the Arc there are often commemorative activities. On the day of my visit I encountered one such activity. When viewing the Eiffel Tower from the Arc de Triomphe, you may also see the surrounding blue roofed and white walled Haussmann buildings, taking pictures of the blue sky and golden road along with the Eiffel Tower at nightfall all add beauty to each other; this is the best of Paris.
