    With our skip-the-line ticket, avoid the queues and make the most of your precious time visiting the Arc de Triomphe with our guide.

    Built between 1806 and 1836, and inspired by the Roman arches, the Arc de Triomphe celebrates the most famous battles of the Grande Armée (Great Army).
    During your guided tour you'll discover the meaning of the many inscriptions and other sculptures on the imposing façade of this iconic monument at the Place de l'Etoile.

    Your guide will also tell you all about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, built under the arch in 1923. This small monument honours the memory of the soldiers who fought and died in the First World War.

    To access the site, take the underground pedestrian passage at the top of the Champs-Elysées. You'll have to climb 284 steps to reach the summit and enjoy the rooftop view of the City of Light. A good workout but definitely worth the effort!
