As the second largest triumphal arch in existence, the Arc de Triomphe is an impressive monument honoring those who died in the Napoleonic Wars. Because the arch stands in the middle of an infamously busy roundabout, crossing the street to reach the structure is certainly not recommended. Instead there is an underpass that provides access to the monument. Once there, you can either climb over 200 steps to reach the top, or take the elevator. Either way, impressive views await.
