Bird’s Eye View over Paris: Arch de Triomphe

Eiffel Tower is probably the most popular site in Paris, but the best views are definitely seen from the top of the Arch de Triomphe. This famous monument stands at the end of Champs-Élysées avenue and it was built between 1806 and 1836. There is an underground tunnel on the Avenue to get to the circle where the Arch stands. After climbing 284 steps via a spiral staircase you get to the top of the Arch, which is 49.5 m (162 ft) tall. Once at the top you get to see a splendid panoramic view of the twelve radiating avenues. It is really gorgeous and worth visiting.
