We went in the evening time and they have a military procession going on. The Arc de Triomphe is beautiful and has an amazing meaning. A must see for those who have the chance

This is a must-see if you are in Paris. It's just as fabulous in person as you would imagine. The tour busses will take you right past it. You can get up to it from an underground passage across the street, or you can stand...More

Majestic view of Paris, when at the top of Arc de Triompe. It is absolutely a must-place to visit. There's a museum inside that anyone can enjoy :)

Traveling with four American teens and after a long day at the Louvre, climbing the stairs was something they couldn't fathom... We postponed that for another day, but soaked in the ambience of the place, shopping around the area and food places, which were very...More

The terrace is very big and basically goes around the whole top of the Arc de Triomphe. I don’t know if you can hold private events there. I guess it’s the best if you inquire with the official website of the monument.
