Arc



This is a view of the Arc of Triomph that stands at the top of the Champs Elysées avenue. The square where it's located is called "Place de l'Etoile" which means "star square" as all the 12 straights avenues around it meet there.

Great angle. It must be a thrill to stand there and look up.

I just about died walking up to the top of the Arc of Triomph...but it was worth it!

Great angle against that beautiful blue Paris sky!

I'm going to check my guide book to see if there is an elevator.

Nice photo. Years ago I crossed the road here with great difficulty, not realizing the was an underpass!
