Zafer Takı, Paris (France)

This Neoclassical monument 50 meters high is dedicated to soldiers who lost their lives during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. Situated on the last part of the Champs Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe is one of the most iconic icons of Paris.

Its construction was completed in 1836 and inspired by the Archaic Period arches. The square where the arch is located is a meeting point of 12 big boulevards in the city, and this is why it was formerly known as “Place de l’Étoile” (meaning French “Star Square”). Today the plaza is named Place Charles de Gaulle.

The terrace on the top floor is open to the public and is a unique place to see the magnificent views of the city. You can join individual or collective tours. These tours serve visitors in different languages.
