Before I stopped off to check out the Eiffel Tower, I grabbed some lunch and relaxed while watching the cars navigate around the Arc de Triomphe.
I must have seen a million photos of this site and heard the stories about the cars driving around it. So I’ll be the first to say to see it with my own eyes was just incredible. The sheer size of the massive roundabout that surrounds it is astonishing and yet I saw no crashes and it all looked very calm.
Alas I didn’t have ten euro’s spare to climb to the top and watch the cars roll around, but if you do I’ve been told its amazing and you have to do it.
The best shopping in the world is around there!!! 😉
Maybe the best shopping Andi but it wasn’t in my budget that’s for sure.
I loved the Arc so much more than the Eiffel Tower. I think it offers a better, and cheaper, view.
I have heard that Ayngelina, but how can you skip the Eiffel Tower when its your first visit to Paris. I will go and climb the Arc next time I visit and there will be a next time.
You can if you have a terrible fear of heights:-)
I’m going back to Paris this weekend. My friends want to climb on at least one monument to get a great view. I’m still doubting on if I will participte:-)
