    You have to go here if you come to Paris! This is where some of the streets meet in Paris. Make sure you go up where you can see the Eiffel Tower from there, and also many streets where the Arc will be right in the middle. Be ready to take the steps up, as there is no elevator. In between the sections, there will be a galleries where it shows the history of the Arc, and some stories too.

    If you want to choose a building to compete with the Eiffel Tower for the symbol of Paris, then the Arc de Triomphe is the only choice. The Arc de Triomphe was built to commemorate Napoleon's victory in 1805, but in fact, Napoleon's army did not pass through the Arc de Triomphe and returned home. It was Hitler's Nazi army that passed through it with great pride during World War II. History has become a cloud. Now the Arc de Triomphe is a symbol of French patriotism. Whether it is the name of a general engraved on the arch wall or the tomb of an unknown martyr, it is a tribute to the heroes who died for France. The Arc de Triomphe was crowned in Paris twice, not for the heroes of France, but for the beautiful scenery. Museum tickets can be used to climb the top of the Arc de Triomphe. These days in Paris, there was a big cold wave and fewer visitors, so there was hardly any queue to enter. Rotating stairs must be climbed, first to the second floor, is a museum, this museum last time came to visit carefully, and then a circle, found that there is a display hall of French military uniforms not seen last time, perhaps in recent years added. Climbing up one layer, you can reach the top platform of 50 meters. Even if you come here for the second time, you are still very excited. Standing here, you feel like you are in the heart of Paris. Twelve broad roads radiate from your feet. The Eiffel Tower, Concorde Square, Sacred Heart Cathedral and even the Pyramids of the Louvre are all in sight. From above, the most magnificent is the Champs Elysees Avenue, which connects the Triumph Gaulle Square with the Harmony Square where the obelisk is located. The Arc de Triumph and the Obelisk are just two points at one end.

    Drop down from the Montparnasse Tower and drive to the foot of the Arc de Triomphe on Champs Elysees Avenue. Although it was already 21:30 p.m., the sunset had not yet set, but unfortunately there was some backlight in the front. The Arc de Triomphe of Paris, the Arc de Triomphe of the Lion, is located in the center of the Charles de Gaulle Square in Paris, France. The Arc de Triomphe, as its name implies, is a triumphant gate for the army to go out for battle. It is the world's largest circular arch, located in the center of Charles de Gaulle Square in central Paris on the island. Originally thought to be two sides, who knows until then, the triumphal arch in the intersection is rectangular on all sides. It's magnificent to stand under the gate and look up. Under the gate, there are many kinds of fires burning all the year round.

    There are twelve avenues scattered around the Arc de Triomphe, one of which is the famous Champs Elysees Avenue, which connects the Concorde Square to the Louvre. The nearly two kilometers long avenue is known as one of the most beautiful streets in the world. The west end of the Champs Elysees is the Arc de Triomphe, which runs along the extension line to the new business district of LaDefense in Paris, where there is the Grande Arche, and the east end is the Place dela Concorde in Paris. Along the extension line to the Louvre, it runs through the Arc de Triomphe de Carrousel, which forms the central axis of Paris.

    The Arc de Triomphe in Paris is a representative building of the imperial style. The rise of this style has an inseparable relationship with Napoleon's advocacy. Its prosperity and decline have always been closely linked to Napoleon's fate. These buildings are inspired and modeled by the magnificent and solemn buildings of the Roman Empire. They are large in scale, simple in appearance, and pursue the majesty, calmness and dignity of the image. The Arc de Triomphe in Paris is exemplified by the Arc de Triomphe in ancient Rome, but its scale is larger and its structure style is more concise. Apart from the eaves, walls and wall foundations, the whole building does not make any big divisions, does not use pillars, even buttress pillars are removed, and there is no line foot. The Arc de Triomphe abandoned the multi-arch coupon model of the Roman Arc de Triomphe, and set up only one arch coupon, which is simple and solemn. In November 1920, after the First World War, under the magnificent Arc de Triomphe, another "Tomb of the Unknown Martyr" was built, which buried an unknown soldier who died in the war. He represented the 1.5 million French officers and soldiers killed in the whole war. Almost every day, people come here to lay flowers in memory of the dead soldiers, which adds a solemn and heroic feeling to the Arc de Triomphe.

    The Arc de Triomphe is located at the end of Champs Elysees Avenue. It is centered by the Arc de Triomphe. The radial urban road highlights the importance of the Arc de Triomphe. Just on that day, a one-sided lane of the Champs Elysees was closed to repair the road. It was a special experience to walk on the road and watch the Arc de Triomphe. To get Champs Elysees Avenue to Arc Triomphe Square, an underground tunnel must be taken. The road surface is too complex and there is no sidewalk to reach. The Arc de Triomphe is also accessible to the top of the door. The fare is much cheaper than the Eiffel Tower. I forgot how much it cost. There is also a store selling Memorial plates inside the Arc de Triomphe. Many Memorial plates are unique inside the Arc de Triomphe. Now I regret that I didn't buy them at that time. I can't find them now. Haha.

    The Arc de Triomphe in Paris is located in the centre of Charles de Gaulle Square in Paris, France. The west end of Champs Elysees Street is the Arc de Triomphe of the Lion. This is a must-see place for French tourists. Standing under the famous Arc de Triomphe, the decorative reliefs on the doors and lintels form an organic whole. The exquisite statues have their own characteristics. The four reliefs on the right side of the stone pillar, Marseilles, Victory, Resistance and Peace, have attracted me deeply. Among them, the famous relief on the right side of the stone pillar, Marseilles, is the most attractive. Attention is worthy of being an immortal masterpiece of art which occupies an important position in the world art history. It should be noted that the Arc de Triomphe in the centre of Charles de Gaulle Square is only the largest and most famous of more than 100 triumphs in Europe, while the oldest one is in Italy.

    Arc de Triomphe is located in the centre of Paris, away from Concorde Square, Eiffel Tower and other attractions are walking distance. I visited the Arc de Triomphe in Vientiane, Laos. It was said that it was a miniature version of the French Arc de Triomphe. It was really like this. I felt very familiar when I saw the Paris Arc de Triomphe from a distance. Maybe the Laos Arc De is a 70 [%] miniature version of Paris. But the environment around the Arc de Triomphe in Laos is much better. After all, it is a small country with good management. There are many tourists. They have to queue up to buy tickets and take pictures around them. The four reliefs on the front and back walls of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris are the crystallization of relief technology. It's worth a visit. Metro No. 1, 2, 6 goes directly to the foot of Arc Triomphe, and many buses can also reach it.
