Climbing the Arc de Triomphe is well worth it, there are quite a few steps on a spiral staircase, so probably not for people with limited mobility. Great views from the top and a lot of entertainment watching the cars going round the Arc de...More

Be prepared for lots of stairs to the top. The views are great and the landmark itself is very beautiful. Lots of history inside this museum. The roundabout is in so many movies we had to visit!

The view from the Arc is second to none, it was unfortunate for us that the day we went was overcast and couldn't see the Effiel Tower in its entirety, but in my opinion, you get a much better view of the city that from...More
