l'Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées Highlights
Itinerary and What to Expect?
Your guide will greet you in front of l’Arc de Triomphe before you head to your first discovery.
(A detailed map will be provided once the booking is confirmed)
Journey through the fascinating history of star-shaped l’Arc de Triomphe. Commemorate the memories of those lives lost during the brutal French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, and ponder the identity of the unknown soldier from WWI as you stand respectfully beside his tomb. Climb the steep steps to the top of the monument and catch your breath as you appreciate the spectacular views of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, the Sacré-Coeur, and the rest of the bustling city. Imagine for a moment the history that this monument bore witness to, including the successful biplane stunt Charles Godefroy performed under the Arc in 1919.
Your guide will entertain you with many deep-rooted secrets and stories that the Champs-Élysées holds. Inhale the magnificent avenue created from swamplands and is now an extension of the Louvre’s Tuileries Garden. Solemnly tread the paved Place de la Concorde that saw atrocious, yet notable public executions, including the execution of King Louis XVI during the French Revolution. Meander your way along the tree-lined avenue and its various sculptures, monuments, and landmarks that make the Champs-Élysées so remarkable; they include Winston Churchill and L’Immortalité Devant le Temps. There are entertainment, dining, and shopping experiences to enjoy along this 1.9 km stretch.
At the end of your breathtaking experience, your guide will leave you at Place de la Concorde where you will be able to walk into the Tuileries Garden or head to Rue Sainte-Honoré.
