Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

3. Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

The Arc de Triomphe is a Neoclassical take on the ancient Roman triumphal arch style. Fifty meters tall, the view from the platform atop the arch is well worth the hike. See the dozen Parisian avenues radiating out from the arch into the City of Light. Paris is one of the most fascinating places in the world and you will find yourself right at its center. Inspired by the great arches of ancient Rome, Napoleon commissioned the Arc de Triomphe shortly after his victory at Austerlitz. Unfortunately, he never lived to see its completion. At the base of the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died in World War I. Behold the eternal flame that is rekindled at 6.30 PM each evening. In addition, there is a must-see exhibition that explains the symbolic importance of this monument. The view from the top of the arch is worth climbing the 284 stairs.

Enjoy a half-day trip to the former home of Claude Monet, one of the most famous painters of French Impressionism. Located in the tiny hamlet of Giverny on the banks of the River Seine, 50 miles west of Paris, the house and gardens were bequeathed to the Académie des Beaux-Arts by his son in 1966. They were opened as a public museum in 1980 following large-scale restoration work. Depending on the option you choose, your tour will either be guided, audio-guided or at your own leisure.  Depart Paris and travel by comfortable air-conditioned coach. As there is no direct public transport to Giverny, this is the ideal way to get there. You will drive via the western districts of Paris and take the Normandy motorway as far as Bonnières.

Giverny attracted several Impressionist painters in the 19th-Century, most following the lead of the movement’s founder, Claude Monet, who lived there for 43 years. Visit the Master’s house, where the spectacular colors and enchanting garden were designed like a work of art.

What people are saying about Paris

Wonderful morning spent here. Fantastic art on display. Recommend you get the audio guide - very informative and it provided a focus, as there is so much to see. We arrived at 10 am. When we left 2 and a half hours later it was getting very crowded so earlier you get there the better.

Absolutely to recommend! Exactly at the agreed time we marched through the security checkpoint into the Louvre! It is enough if you show up 1/2 hour before the appointment. You won't be let in earlier due to the time window. Everything perfect, gladly again...

It was a spectacular weekend visiting museum d’Orsay. I love seeing sculptures and paintings expressionism and neo impressionist artists.

Lovely chateau with wonderful stables and horses. Definitely worth seeing and not overly crowded.

Easy and fast access through the lower level. Tickets emailed in advance. Super easy. Thank you!
