The Arc de Triomphe seems to be the center… of attention, and all the streets in the area seem to lead back to the Arc. Beautiful cobblestone streets and small cars rushi d ari d the Arch as it serves as a awesome traffic circle. Except the fact that it is tremendous! You have room for tourists and locals with gawkers and people stopping to grab a quick picture. Like me.
The Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile stands at the center of Place Charles de Gaulle. This is also known as the star and it has 12 avenues or streets that all join at the center leading to the arc. It was built in the early 1800’s. 1806-1836. Known to be the biggest Arc in the world and commissioned by Napoleon.
Tour buses parking to disembark tourists to view the arch. Though there is a lot of room you can navigate around them pretty easily. Just watch out because there is so much going on with a lot of cars etc it’s a little hectic.
I’m planning on traveling to 50 countries in the next posts. From far off Asia to the Carribean, Europe and some others that will be drop dead awesome bucket list locations from shoestring budget days to 3,4 star and maybe some very occasional 5 star locations and stays. I want to show the real thing and some of all people who live in the locations we explore. Star/ follow and like and comment at the bottom to be a part this and see the next location.
