A unique panoramic view over the Champs Élysées, the most beautiful avenue in the world.
> The new permanent exhibition is translated in English, Spanish and German.
In 1806, Napoleon I ordered the construction of the Arc de Triomphe to honour the Grande Armée. Inspired by the arches in Antiquity, this iconic monument carries the illustrious names of the nation and houses the tomb of the unknown soldier, for whom the flame is lit every evening.
The layout makes for a thorough understanding of the monument’s history and its national and international symbolic importance.
By day or night, you can soak up the unique panoramic view over the Champs Élysées from the terrace.
> Guide booklet available in French, English, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese and Russian.
