Very historical place in the time of II world war that made this arch a symbol of French proven army dominance during the attack.

I would say come to see it once. It's pretty cool. Take a few pictures, look around, then go eat in the mall right next to it. After that head back into the city and you can check this off your list.

Tickets to the top are a bit pricey, but it does have a terrific view. The elevator is glass, and could be a bit scary if you suffer from vertigo. At the top, there are glass barriers protecting you from danger and the wind. They...More
