Bibendum
Situated at the top of the Champs-Élysées, this arch occupies the centre of the Place Charles-de-Gaulle, which opens out onto 12 wide avenues. Built in 1806 by Jean-François Chalgrin upon the order of Napoleon, it was only completed in 1836. Huge in its dimensions (50m high by 45m wide), it is adorned with impressive high reliefs, including The Departure of the Volunteers in 1792, better known as La Marseillaise. Enjoy a good view of Paris from the platform. The tomb of the Unknown Soldier has rested beneath the arch since 1921.
