Bird’s Eye View of Paris

Paris Bird's Eye View

This bird’s eye view of Paris was taken on top of the Arc de Triomphe, the most iconic of all French

monuments standing at the center of Place de l’Etoile.  The Arc de Triomphe is a triumphal arch

commissioned by Napoloeon in 1806.  It offers the best view of the Historical Axis of 12 grand

avenues including the fabulous Champs Élysées.  There is a minimal entrance fee to get on top

of the arc but if you want to get a majestic view of the city, it’s worth your money.
