This is What Paris Looks Like from the Top of the Arc de Triomphe
I recently went up to the Arc de Triomphe for two reasons. Firstly, because I had never been and I was really excited to go up to the top of such an iconic monument to see the view over Paris and, secondly, because I wanted to take some nice photos for my collaboration with Daniel Wellington for their new Classic Black collection.
I was rather unlucky with the weather as it was foggy and raining... Despite the bad weather conditions, I was quite happy with the results of my photos and I wanted to share these with you to show you the outstanding panoramic view. You can see the Eiffel Tower, the Champs Elysées, Montmartre, the Montparnasse Tower, and Les Invalides amongst others, but you especially get to see the beauty and perfection of the architectural layout of Paris.

The watch I’m wearing is the new exclusive Daniel Wellington Cornwall 36MM model in rose gold. If you want the same one or any other model (especially now that Christmas is approaching) then go on their website and remember to use my code «LULUESCAPES» to get 15% off, which is valid until 31st January 2016. They even offer free shipping and returns worldwide!
To access the Arc de Triomphe you need to get off at the Charles-de-Gaulle-Etoile metro station and follow the signs underground. If you're arriving by foot then take the underground path to reach the entrance - don't try to cross over the road as it's one of the most chaotic and dangerous roundabouts in the capital...
You can buy your ticket online to save the queue or straight there (Adult-12€ / Reduced-9€ / Free if under 18). You can stay at the top for as long as you wish and can even get a guided tour with a group by reserving in advance. Opening times vary a bit during the year so read more here as last admission is 45 mins before closing time.
Have you ever been to the top of the Arc de Triomphe?
