There’s nothing like the view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe at sunset. Standing proudly where the city’s greatest avenues meet, the grand arch offers uninterrupted views through Paris in all directions. With special Skip-the-Line Access, we get you to the top faster – leaving time for a leisurely approach along the elegant Champs-Élysées boulevard. Enjoy fascinating historical commentary from an expert guide, as the sun sinks and the city nightlife starts to stir.

Your tour begins among the upmarket boutiques and luxurious restaurants of the Champs-Élysées, in the shade of age-old trees. As you stroll up toward the Arc de Triomphe, your enthusiastic local guide will take you back in time with stories of luminaries like Ekaterina Medici, who created the Champs-Élysées in the 16th century when she requested a promenade extending from the Louvre Museum into the fashionable Parisian countryside.

Today, the Champs-Élysées is the widest and most beautiful avenue in Paris. Part of its magic is that on a clear day, you can spot all three of Paris’s monumental arches: the Arc du Carrousel du Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and the modern Grand Arche de la Defence.

Thanks to our special Skip-the-Line Access, you’ll get to see one of these arches, the Arc de Triomphe, up close, without spending time waiting in line. The panoramic view from the top rewards the 284-step climb, and the tour is carefully timed to get you there just as sunset shines a new light on the iconic landmarks of Paris. As you take in this unique and romantic view, your guide will explain the history of the Arc de Triomphe, built to honor the victories of the emperor Napoleon, and point out the sights you absolutely must not miss.
