Arc de Triomphe

Arc de Triomphe  is undoubtedly one of the most famous monuments in all of Paris, France. With just one glance of it, you will soon understand as to why! This magnificent and impressive structure is nothing short of a glorious sight to see and even more so when you get to see up close.

Located right in the center of the Place Charles de Gaulle, it is not easily missed although it is often times confused with the smaller arch called the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. The main arch was built in dedication to all the soldiers who fought and died for France during the Napoleonic and French Revolutionary Wars. As a tribute to them, each of the names of the French Victories and generals are inscribed both its inner and outer surfaces. One of the many aspects that makes the Arc de Triomphe so interesting is the fact that just beneath its vault lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which was from World War I.

Standing at a height of 50 meters (164 feet), 45 meters (148 feet) wide and 22 meters (72 feet) deep, it is nothing short of large and captivating. The Arc de Triomphe is a place where people from all over the world not only gather to marvel at is pure size and beauty but also to pay tribute to the men fallen in war. Be sure not to miss out on doing just that the next time you find yourself in Paris!
