When you go to the Arc de Triomphe you need to walk around the Carrousel and have a look at the Arc from all angles. It's absolutely stunning and you cannot go to Paris and not see this ! You'll be sorry !

This is a busy area near the Louvre. It is an impressive area - but not quite as impressive by the Arc de Triomphe. Be careful crossing.

While coming from Tuileries Garden towards Louvre museum, you'll pass through this monument, a triumphal arch, which is different than Arc de Triomphe and smaller as well. Thought its quite beautiful and you can take some nice pictures with Louvre in the background.

The Arc de Triomp du Carrousel is near the Louvre, and not near the main Arc de Triomphe. It is spectacular at any time of the night or day, and is definitely worth adding to your list of things to see whilst in Paris.

In this area, your eyes are naturally drawn to the iconic glass pyramids of the Louvre, but turn around, and here is the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, yet another impressive monument

Let's be honest - you are already at the Louvre so walk over to this Arc - one of the 3 in the line. This one is beautiful and definitely should see it...again you are already nearby!!

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
