The Arc de Triomphe is a monument in Paris that stands at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. It is one of the monuments and grand thoroughfares on a route leading out of Paris. The area used to be a mecca for artists, writers, and intellectuals. Now it has become one long strip mall with very expensive stores and shops. Here are a few photos of the area.
