Arc de Triomphe



Arc de Triomphe

While in Paris, our hotel was under a 5 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe so luckily we saw this gorgeous view a lot. The above photo was taken on our way out to dinner. I liked the shot and couldn’t decide on color vs. black and white, so there you have it! Both. You can also climb the arch during the day for a great view of Paris (admission is 11 euro)

For my hotel review, check out my post on the Prince de Galles hotel here. For a complete guide to Paris sights, desserts, museums and things to do in Paris, check out my Paris Mini Guide here.

Pst – did you know you can get into the Arc de Triomphe for free with the Paris Pass? It includes 60+ museums/attractions as well as unlimited metro, bus and tram rides. Well worth it!


Visiting Paris – Travel Checklist

Low cost carriers often cheap flights to Paris year round – you can check for flight deals and routes here.

If you plan to sight see, a multi day Paris Pass is a great value! It includes 60+ museums/attractions and allows you to skip the line. Well worth it! You can check out all the included sights and attractions here.

Lastly, be sure to visit Paris with travel insurance. Whether you get injured and need to be hospitalized, or your phone gets stolen, or an injury forces you to cancel all or part of your vacation, travel insurance will help when you need it most. I use and recommend World Nomads travel insurance.
