L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile
This is a really interesting feature in Paris, lot visited by tourist everyday! You can go to the rooftop for 6 euros and have a magical view!
The most iconic square where all the major avenues of Paris meet. It is also where Champs Elysées start. Good nightlife around this square (The Duplex, Les Planches…)
One of the most famous monuments in Paris, standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the center of Place Charles de Gaulle. Juncture formed by twelve radiating avenues.
Worth climbing for the view from the top. Fascinating to watch 12 roads converge on a giant roundabout. Always busy though. Accessed from underground passages.
The Arc de Triomphe is located at Place de l'Étoile at the top of the Champs-Élysées. It's a national symbol with an incredible view from its rooftop. You could go there by walk or by subway (line 1) within 18 min.
“The Champs Elysees is one of the most famous streets in the world, so be prepared to come up against a fair few tourists, though you can sidestep the hordes pretty easily by exploring the side streets just off the main drag. For most, it's a mandatory stop, if only to catch a glimpse of the monumental Arc de Triomphe which crowns the avenue and which was commissioned by Napoléon to celebrate the armies of empire. The imposing tree-lined avenue is home to a mix of chain stores and luxury brands which, once passed, will take you down to La Concorde, where you’ll find some nice green areas, the French Government buildings, as well as the Grand Palais - a must-see for art and architecture fans alike. Don't miss Rue Saint Honoré - the epitome of chic Parisian shopping which take you all the way to the hip independent bars and shops of Le Marais.”
“Even if you don't want to visit the muséum, it's a nice place the spend the afternoon/evening.”
“The Eiffel tower of course but also the possibility to walk along the Seine or to the Modern Art museum, Galliera , or Quai Branly museum. There are garden and open air cafés everywhere. ”
“Galeries Lafayette is not far away and nice if you want to do some shopping ! ”
“If you want a great run and see Paris at the same time (preferably early morning), we recommend the following (around an hour), Turn right on rue Montorgueil then right onto rue Etienne Marcel. Cross Place des Victoires, continue straight on, then turn left rue Vivienne or right before into the cute Passage des 2 Pavillons if the gates are open. You come into the Palais Royal Gardens, exit on the opposite to Place Colette, then the Louvre, the Tuileries gardens, then onto the lower Quais –Right Bank – you can jog all the way till the end of Ile Saint Louis and come back via the Islands by crossing the Pont de Sully. Turn right onto Quai de Béthune on Ile Saint Louis towards Ile de la Cité. You’ll see Notre Dame, then continue until the Pont Neuf that you will cross towards the Right Bank (right turn), then continue straight on back home via Les Halles. ”
