Arc de Triomphe

A unique perspective of the Champs Élysées, the world’s most beautiful avenue.
 Napoleon ordered the construction of the Arc de Triomphe in 1806 as a tribute to the Great Army. Modelled on the  arches of Antiquity, this iconic monument bears the nation's illustrious names and houses the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the flame of which is re-lit every evening.
 Day and night, you can admire a unique view of the Champs Elysées from the terrace.
