The Arc de Triomphe which is situated at the start of the famous Avenue des Champs Elysèes is one of the most iconic monuments in the French capital. It was commissioned by Napoleón to commemorate his famous Battle of Austerlitz, as a symbol of his victorious military campaign. The construction took many years and was finally completed on his birthday but, after his death. There were many architects involved in bringing to life this imposing napoleonic project but after so many years, the original vision was somewhat different to the end result. In 1920, at the foot of the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was placed and from that day forward, it became symbolic of the unidentified dead from the First World War. It is a work of majestic historical and cultural significance, a place that no tourist should overlook. In fact, there are nearly always queues for access to the Arc de Triomphe and in order not to waste your precious holiday time queuing, having a ticket that has been bought in advance on this web page will enable you to jump the queues.
