Travel: Arc de Triomphe

With it's neoclassical architecture, the Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile is one of the most popular landmark in Paris. This monument started its construction in August 15,1806 with a height of 50 metres. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, at the western end of the Champs-Elysees.

Always busy with cars going around it, this famous monument is simply amazing and worth a visit. I haven't been up to the top, but you can go under it via stairs and can go on top to reach the view deck where you can experience Parisian sunset with the sunlight shining through before darkness sets in as what I've always seen on Instagram photos of some celebrities. 

You'll also be surprised on all the cars and people navigate and stroll along this area but not having any accidents at all. You can also avoid crowds by visiting at nght here. I really love it here so include this in your must see spot when you visit Paris!
