Tickets to climb or take the elevator up the Arch are bought at the ground level. Free entry for youngsters under 18. You can pay a visit to the ground level of the arch for totally free.
Take the underpass to access the arch. Never attempt to cross the chaotic and harmful roundabout from the Champs Elysées! To access the best, you can climb 284 methods, or take an elevator to the mid-level and climb 64 stairs to the leading.
The very best time to check out is after six:30 p.m., when the flame of the unknown soldier is lit and the Champs-Elysées is bathed in shimmering lights. From the observation deck at the leading of the arch, breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré Coeur, and the Louvre are also in store. goparis.about.com
