Went right into security check with the skip the line tickets. Tackled the 384 staircase to the top. Great views of the city, including Eiffel tower. Enjoyed the historic information and items inside available. Would highly recommend.

When we visited the Arc de Triomphe the ticket machine was broken and the line of people queuing to get tickets was huge. We skipped by and we’re through in about 10mins.
My daughter had recently had surgery and needed to use the lift...we had to present our tickets and then double back squeezing past people coming in. It wasn’t a real problem but I would suggest that you mention it to the people at bag security, it may save you having to do this.
Lift was easy and quick but you do need to walk quite quickly around the Arc to reach it following staff which might be a problem for some.
Once at the top, the views are stunning and help to put the whole of Paris into perspective.
A must whilst in Paris

Great views-better than up Eiffel Tower as not as high. Gift shop really nice and well-priced. Really enjoyed winding old stairs walking up, and sense of the huge size!

We normally like to go through museums alone, but we are very glad we did this tour. The Louvre is so gigantic that I am sure we would have been frustrated trying to go it alone Cannot believe how much this tour packed into 2.5 hours. Laura our guide was wonderful

The Arc de Triomphe is an amazing structure! Fantastic views from the roof, if you’re up to walking a TON of steps!

So glad we pre-purchased skip the line terrace access tickets to Arc De Triomphe. This is an absolute must do as gives such great 360 degree view of this wonderful city

"Skip the Line" tickets gave us an opportunity to access Arc de Triomphe without any delays or queues, taking to account that we have visited it during the busiest tourists time in July.
The view from the terrace is beautiful, from the top you can see most of the famous buildings around the center area, but you have to walk the stairs yourself!

A hot day, crowds milling and a desire to see this monument led us down the Champs d'Alysee. We had pre-purchased tickets and easily found our way to the designated queue. Upon reaching the window, the representative offered us a lift to the top. What a relief! This allowed us to maximise our time and minimise the potential for trauma. Thanks to all. A great visit.

Great view of the city, but what a climb! Spiral staircase of 275 steps, we counted. Its worth it though.

The skip the line was nice but we weren’t told you have to climb lots of stairs that are spiral to get to the top with no air conditioning at all. I felt claustrophobic going up those steps I am 41 and I had to stop a few times to catch my breath. The view from the top was nice but a better experience at Eiffel Tower for the same view. Also to get to the arc of the triumph you have to cross a very busy roundabout with lots of traffic and no walkway or traffic lights it was nerve raking.
