Views were great , a little due to the sunny weather. Lift going up and down on the outside of the inside of the arch wasn't working coming down - which almost made us request a refund as the two of us felt a little...More

Impressive view of Paris, however the building is nothing to write home about. Its size is impressive, but somehow it manages not to leave a strong impression. Be careful around the neighbourhood after dark.

Our group had all visited Paris before, so we were looking at more off the beaten track ideas. We visited in March and had the entire rooftop deck (observation deck to ourselves). The Grand Arch has spectacular views looking back to the heart of the...More

No queuing at all walked up purchased a ticket. The lift to the roof is something else and when you get to the top the view is incredible straight down the Champs-Elysées from La Defense Worth a trip

No queues on our visit..... Excellent views of the surrounding area from the roof. Looking down towards the Arc de Triomphe, which is about 3 miles away. Visitors should be aware, that although metro Line 1, extends here, it is outwith the Paris central area...More

From the esplanade of La Défense it looks towards the other much older Arc de la triomphe, in the neighborhood plenty of office and shopping malls.

Built some time ago as a major inner city complex on a monumental scale with high rise contemporary architecture and the arch itself a dominant skyline feature. However, from a distance looking back at this area the arch itself is now very much lost in...More

This is an amazing, imposing, astounding monument. Part of the Axe Historique that forms a straight line from the Arc du Triomphe du Carrosel, the Obelisque, and the Arc du Triomphe, you should add it to your Paris visit. You can make it here and...More

When going inside they check your purse and backpack. 15 euro per person to go up is not worth it. They'll show you to the elevator which goes up to 35th floor. On top of the roof we can't take a decent photos. The whole...More
