Arc de Triomphe in Paris

The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris.

It was commissioned in 1806 after the victory at Austerlitz by Emperor Napoleon I.

The Arc de Triomphe stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle

( formerly Place de l'Étoile ) at the western end of the Champs-Élysées.

It is the linchpin of the historic axis leading from the Louvre Palace,

a sequence of monuments and grand thoroughfares leading out of Paris.

The monument stands over 51 meters ( 165ft ) in height and is 45 meters wide.

It is the second largest triumphal arch in existence.

Its design was inspired by the Roman Arch of Titus.
