About Arc de Triomphe
One of the most iconic monuments in the world would undoubtedly be the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, much older than the celebrated Eiffel Tower. Situated on the western extremity of the famous Champs-Élysées and right on Place Charles de Gaulle, this 49.5-meter-tall monument attracts millions of tourists all year round and any visit to Paris is deemed incomplete without taking a stroll to the Arc de Triomphe. With a height of 50 meters, construction on the Arc started in 1806 and was completed in 1836, to commemorate all those who fought for France during the Napoleonic Wars with inscriptions of all brave generals and wars fought. It also has the tomb of the unknown soldier to honour the soldiers who gave up their lives for France and the eternal flame signifies the gratitude the people of France have for the brave soldiers. It signifies a unified country and stands in the architectural style of the early 19th century.
The Arc de Triomphe forms a part of the historic axis of monuments that stretch from the Louvre to the outskirts of Paris and is the culmination of a unified effort of many sculptors and designers, prominent among them being Francois Rude: La Marseillaise, while the friezes and bas relief figures are undoubtedly in the style of James Pradier, Antoine Etex and Jean-Pierre Cortot.
All triumphant parades right from the time of Charles de Gaulle, pass through the Arc de Triomphe and leads to chest pumping and feeling of patriotism. The best time to visit the Arc de Triomphe is on July 14th, also known as Bastille Day. The Parade along the length of the Champs Elysees and passing through the Arc de Triomphe takes one to the victory marches of the days of yore.
Current day tourists definitely pass under the Arc and take in the feel of Paris. There is a lot of activity and entertainment around the Arc and attracts many visitors. Walking under the Arc or admiring it can be done free of charge.
