Arc de Triomphe

Monument Paris, France

The French Triumph Arc de Triomphe

L' Arc de Triomphe is one of the essential Parisian monument; located at the beginning of Champs-Élysées street in Paris: in the center of Charles de Gaulle Square. Built by Napoleon to celebrate his victory in Austerlitz, is the second heaviest monument in the world with its 50,000 tons of weight and its height of over 50 meters; it used to represent the French military force.

"You will come back home under a Triumphal Arch," that's what Napoleon used to tell his soldiers after a victory. Now, just like Napoleons' army, you will have the honor to walk this famous alley under the greatest arch in the world. Roman style built, you can admire its impressive facades decorated with military and heroic motifs. In its 170 years of history, the Arc de Triomphe has been the symbol of all the most important events of the Nation, from Napoleon's empire to the heroic French Nazi liberation.
