    Arc de Triomphe, Paris
    From the Place de la Concorde all the way to the top of the Champs-Elysees, you will discover the Place de l'Etoile which is known today as the Place Charles de Gaulle. And, at this busy place lies the Arc de Triomphe. Climb to the top for one of the best views of Paris. No, it doesn't go as high as the Eiffel Tower. But since Paris is relatively flat, the vantage point at this height is actually better. The arch of Triomph brings in 1.7 million visitors each year.

    It was not until the year 1730, when five streets radiated out from this "Etoile de Chaillot".

    And in 1758, after several plans were drawn up, such as a bizarre one in the midst of the square - a gigantic elephant housing ballrooms and a theater. However, the plans appeared a bit too ambitious. And, Napoleon Bonaparte had other ideas, he built a monument for the glorification of his Grande Armée a triumphal arch in classical style - the Arc de Triomphe. The Arch was finished for the inauguration in 1836, during the reign of Louis-Philippe. However, the rest of the "Place de L'Etoile" was not finished until 1854.

    Haussman, responsible for redesigning Paris (1853-1870), added another seven avenues to the existing five ones of them stretching up to the boulevard called after him.
    The Arc de Triomphe and its massive pillars are decorated with bas reliefs depicting scenes trom the revolutionary era (including the First Empire). To the right on the side facing the Champs-Elysees is the Marseillaise by Rude (the departure of the volunteers to the front in 1792); to the left is Napoleon's Triumph of 1810 by Cortot. The resistance of 1814 and the Peace of 1815 are on the other side, modestly facing away from the city.

    To get a closer look at the Arc de Triomphe, you can take an underpass on the Champs-Elysees or Avenue de la Grande Armee that leads you to the center of the plaza. Cultural centers, deluxe hotels and other activities that participate in the tradition and prestige of the Champs-Elysees are encouraged to return by the
