Arc de Triumph Question

Jump to last reply

I' m going to be in Paris for two weeks in May, and have been thinking about finally going up in the Arc, after avoiding that for many years. I did climb up those stairs in 1951, and needless to say, it was no problem then! However, now is a different story. I understand there is an elevator for "older" people like me. I was wondering if any of you have used that elevator, or if that is possible these days. And if it goes all the way up to the top, or you still have to climb stairs to do that.

I also think I read somewhere that the arch is partially covered with scaffolding now, which obstructs a lot of the view. I'll have a Museum Pass, which covers the entrance fee.
Any thoughts - to try this or forget about it? At least I've been up there once in my life, but back then there wasn't all that fascinating traffic to gawk at.
