Paris City Tour 2nd part; Spiral Staircase going above Arch de Triomphe

Central Europe 1st part; 4-days traveling solo in France
October 10 to October 14, 2013

Paris city tour 1st part; lattice stairs of Eiffel Tower 

The viewing deck at the top can only be reached by climbing up its 40 stairs. But before you get to the stairs, you have to get to the monument itself (which isn’t as simple as you’d think). There is an underground tunnel on the Avenue de la Grande Armee side of the circle. You can access this tunnel from the Wagram exit of the Metro. One of the best days of the year to visit the Arc is July 14th, Bastille Day. The Bastille Day parade follows the length of the Champs Elysees and a huge flag billows from the Arch’s crown creating a colorful photo op.
 
Arc de Triomphe opening hours is from 1000H to 2230H and close on French public holidays. Admissions fee costs 8 Euro and is included in Paris Museum Pass.
The Arc de Triomphe is located near Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile station RER line A and metro lines 1,2 and 6.

The Arc de Triomphe Paris, the most monumental of all triumphal arches, was built between 1806 and 1836. Even though there were many modifications from the original plans, reflecting political changes and power struggles, the Arch still retains the essence of the original concept which was a powerful, unified ensemble. The Arc de Triomphe stands at the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, also known as the "Place de l'Étoile". It’s located at the western end of the Champs-Élysées.
