Arc de Triomphe with the last rays of sun spilling through the arch as evening arrives.
It’s possible to visit the top of this arch for a view over the city. It’s interesting to see how this monument lines up with the Place de la Concorde, the Louvre, La Défense and the Eiffel Tower.
Closest Metro station is Etoile on Metro Line 6 (light green) the terminus station of this line.
Closest RER station is Charles de Gaulle Etoile on RER A (red). Same station for both the Metro & RER, just different levels (RER is further underground).
Close by is the famous tree-lined shopping street of Champs-Elysées leading south east towards Place de la Concorde and eventually onto Tuileries Garden & the Louvre.
