Arc de Triomphe

Our last day in Paris and yes, we did go a top the Arc. This Arc is truly a monument. It is big and impressive. And the views from up top are expansive.The arc was approved by Napoleon in 1805 to honor France's armies and victories. The Arc's intent changed a little over time and was finally completed in 1836. We bought a gift shop book that explains its history and the artwork adorning it. It is very interesting.

After the Arc we had lunch and then headed for the train station and the trip back to Neuchâtel. We had a good time in Paris. It is a great city to visit.
