Description

At 110 meters tall, the Grande Arche de La Défense is a towering architectural triumph. Built as a 20th-century update to the Arc de Triomphe, the monument celebrates the power of humanity and offers incredible views of central Paris. Now, you can go straight to the top and enjoy the largest terrace in Paris and the fascinating museum of photojournalism – if you can stop gawping at the scenery!

Paris's Grande Arche certainly casts a long shadow – it's one of the tallest structures in the city. After you've strutted up the marble steps, you'll be whisked skyward by the custom-designed glass-walled elevators, offering panoramic views of some of the capital's most iconic buildings.

Up top, the views only get better! Prepare to feel your jaw drop as you explore the skyscraping terrace, complete with a 100-meter footbridge that'll have you 'walking in the air' in complete safety. With views stretching into the distance, you can see landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and Arc de Triomphe like never before.

While you're here, take the opportunity to visit the 1,200 m² museum of photojournalism - showing off works by some of the world's greatest photographers. Then glide back down to earth.

The entrance...the lift going up is filthy, not cleaned and not maintained. Very disappointing. No restaurant/cafe on the roof!!?? With that view.....another disappointment!!
