The Arc de Triomphe is magnificent. Its great to visit it in all kinds of weather, but today was a sunny and warm spring day and it was particularly delightful.
Fortunately for me, there was no line for wandering around the base of this incredible monument and I enjoyed every second of seeing it again up close and personal. It has been years since I’ve looked over all the fascinating details of it.
Below are the 2 reliefs that decorate the “back” side of the arch.
It’s hard to see the eternal flame burning in daylight, but I did my best to capture it.
