On this day 4, the itinerary was filled with some heavyweights from the city.We have started with arc de triomphe...an monument made for a soldier died for France.It center for almost 8 roads can be seen from all 8 streets.
-Arc de Trumph
The city seemed to be in its all glamorous avatar as the sun set and we got ready for our Cruise on river sienne.
Walk to the magnificent Arc de TriompheOne of Paris' most historic landmarks, the spectacular Arc de Triomphe was built by Napoleon, the French emperor, in memory of his troops. Today, it stands tall at the centre of the busy Place Charles de Gaulle and offers stunning views of the city. Take the underground passageway to reach the monument (the traffic here is crazy) and then proceed to take a stroll around the base and under its arches to admire its grandeur. If you have the time and strength, climb the 284 steps to its top (an elevator can take you till the 238th step) for a bird's eye view of the 12 streets radiating out from the Place Charles de Gaulle and the best views of the Eiffel Tower.
A view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe is a must. Its better than the the top of the Eiffel tower. why so? You see the Eiffel too from the Arc and its free! Soak in Paris and its streets from this monument.
5. To the Arc de Triomphe... The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, at the western end of the Champs-Élysées.
It is located at the western end of the Champs-Élysées, so it even comes with an amazing view upon the world-famous shopping street
