The Arc de Triomphe is an architectural masterpiece and a highlight of the beautiful French capital Paris. It is one of the most recognizable features of Paris and an important historical monument. The Arc de Triomphe corresponds to a smaller arch at the Louvre museum and the modern Grande Arche at La Defense in the city's business district. The Arc epitomizes the Neoclassical style and draws on inspiration from a Roman arch in Italy.
The purpose of the Arc de Triomphe is as a war memorial for the soldiers who perished during both the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars. A memorial from the First World, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is situated beneath the arch. It is a hugely popular tourist spot and a purchase of an art print, poster or canvas art would be a great reminder of an enjoyable holiday.
