From Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tower
When France displayed its greatness...
Symbol of military power under Napoleon Bonaparte, the Arc de Triomphe opens the walk. Symbol of the industrial skill under the 3rd Republic, the Eiffel Tower ends it.
At the top of both monuments, an outstanding view over Paris, and especially over the Champs-Elysées, the Place de la Concorde to the East and the Arche de la Défense to the West for the first one is given to you. Imagine all the selfies you could take...
Between those two ascents, the jardins du Trocadéro and the Champ-de-Mars, with their large green spaces, open-air sculptures, fountains, children games... They invite you to relax.
Throughout this walk, the 19th and 20th centuries pass before your eyes. The memorial scheme and the technological showcase give a clue about the political issues of that period. Yet, there are still lighter, funnier and even spectacular anecdotes all through this beautiful walk.
