About sight: Arc de Triomphe

On Place d’Etoile where 12 roads converge they began to construct a large triumphal arch to commemorate the victories of Napoleon in 1806. Its height is 49 meters. And you should climb up the stairs atop the arch. Initially, there were written the names of outstanding military leaders on the walls of the arch, but later the practice was abandoned.
