Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

1. Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

The Arc de Triomphe is a Neoclassical take on the ancient Roman triumphal arch style. Fifty meters tall, the view from the platform atop the arch is well worth the hike. See the dozen Parisian avenues radiating out from the arch into the City of Light. Paris is one of the most fascinating places in the world and you will find yourself right at its center. Inspired by the great arches of ancient Rome, Napoleon commissioned the Arc de Triomphe shortly after his victory at Austerlitz. Unfortunately, he never lived to see its completion. At the base of the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died in World War I. Behold the eternal flame that is rekindled at 6.30 PM each evening. In addition, there is a must-see exhibition that explains the symbolic importance of this monument. The view from the top of the arch is worth climbing the 284 stairs. From your privileged position, survey all of Paris. Unlike the obligatory Eiffel Tower trip, getting into the Arc de Triomphe is an effort not all tourists undertake. Plus, with skip-the-line tickets, you'll hardly have to break stride on your way in.

I recommend without hesitation. It's a very good way to see the main monuments without walking for hours. You can hop on and off at any stop. Do not forget to collect your countermark from the driver at the start of the cruise. The comments are very interesting in the bus and on the boat the comments are given by a guide in English and French. Our children aged 7 and 12 did not know Paris and enjoyed themselves.

Couldn’t make the day we originally scheduled. Texted the get your guide helpline. They quickly responded that our ticket was good for 24hrs. Great service, great value. Thanks!

Good experience. The guide was fun and knowledgeable. Don't go expecting a deeper understanding of history, because that's not the point. Do to forget the water.

Beautiful views. It is an easy climb unless you are not in very good physical shape.

If you was wonderful at night. I would love to try again during the day.
