The Arc of Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is a monument steeped in history and has become a must because of its position. This arch is the largest in the world and thus underscores its triumphs with dignity and gives a certain idea of the scale of the work carried out in Paris.

Located on Place de l’Étoile, the Arc offers a breathtaking 360-degree view of the 12 arteries that radiate around it. From its summit, you can admire the famous Avenue des Champs Elysées, La Défense, Place de la Concorde, the Eiffel Tower, the Dôme des Invalides, the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the Opéra Garnier and many other historical monuments.

One advice only: climb it, on foot or by elevator for people with reduced mobility, as quickly as possible, day and night!

Faubourg

Located in the 8th arrondissement, rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré starts on rue Royal and ends its journey on the Place des Ternes.

Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré is a pleasant street and is dotted with luxury boutiques such as the famous Hermès house or the Guerlain workshop!

You can also find art galleries, embassies, private mansions and especially the Elysée Palace, the residence of the President of the Republic.

If this street is already a must for a shopping session as it should be, this street is also a delight during Christmas holidays since the stores participate in decorating the area sumptuously through their windows.

And if you don’t want to buy, go there just for the pleasure of the eyes!
