How much does it cost to climb to the top of Paris' Arc de Triomphe? The admission fee to the monument at Place Charles de Gaulle is 13 euros. If the following requirements are satisfied, the visit is free: 18–25 years old, EU and non-EU permanent residents, jobless, handicapped, and accompanying persons.
The entrance fee is also required to enter the base of the arch. This can be done in two ways: either by buying a ticket for the entire site or by paying a fixed price for entry to only one section of it. The choice of which part to visit is up to you; there are several key attractions within the arch itself as well as surrounding areas.
The most popular option is to buy a "passport" for the site which gives access to all its major attractions for one day. These cost 40 euros for adults, 25 euros for children under 12 years old. Children under six years old are free.
Passes cannot be purchased online but must be bought in person at any of the Arch de Triomphe sites around Paris. You can also purchase them from some of the arch's participating hotels.
An alternative option is to visit only one section of the arch. This costs about 80 cents for adults, 50 cents for children. Tickets are available from automatic machines located next to the entrance to each section.
L'arc. The Arc de Triomphe was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806, when he commissioned Chalgrin to create an arch to honor the French Army. The Arch's construction began in 1806, was restarted in 1825, and was not completed until 1836. The massive project cost a total of 10,432,000 francs. It took 1,576 men to cut the granite required for the monument, at a rate of one block every 40 minutes. The overall length of the arch is 92 meters, and its height from base to crown is 48 meters.
Arc de Triomphe. The Arch de Triomphe is a monumental arched gateway built to commemorate the victories of Napoleon. It stands on the Place du Trocadéro in Paris, France. The arch was designed by Michel-Ange Le Doleur and Pierre François Lefebvre and constructed between 1806 and 1831. The structure has been widely criticized for its ostentatiousness by some writers, including Charles Dickens who called it "a huge machine made to impose on the rabble". Others praise it as a masterpiece of neoclassical architecture.
It is 182 meters long and 48 meters high with a large central dome. The four faces of the arch are carved with twelve pairs of statues, each pair representing a military campaign won by Napoleon. On the left (as you face the entrance) are campaigns in Europe; on the right, those in North Africa; in the middle, those in Asia.
Yes. To ascend to the top of the Arc de Triomphe, you must purchase a ticket. After purchasing a ticket, you can either take the stairs or the elevator to the top. Tickets are sold at kiosks located around the base of the monument.
The price of admission is $7.50 for adults, $5.50 for students and children under 12 years old, and free for children under 5. These prices include access to all areas of the monument; there are no entry fees for specific attractions.
Tickets are not required for people who are disabled, but they can be purchased on the same credit card used to pay for entrance tickets.
If you do not have a ticket, you will not be allowed into the monument. However, visitors who have not bought a ticket may still reach some parts of the interior with an accompanying person by using the special lanes reserved for those who cannot afford to buy a ticket.
There are several ways to get to the Arc de Triomphe. The most popular option is to take the "Tour du Louvre" bus service, which stops near the Tuileries Garden across from the Louvre Museum. A single ticket costs €11 ($13.50) per person. The journey takes about an hour.
