Paris schedule--climbing Arc?

Jump to last reply

I wondered, has anyone climbed to the top of the Arc de Triumph? How long did it take to do so (rough ballpark :) )? Were you glad you had done so, or did you feel it wasn't a great use of your time in Paris?

We are taking the Eurostar from London for a one day visit to Paris (the whole under the ocean train was too big of a draw for my husband to miss!). We arrive at 9:20am and leave at 18:10, so we are quite limited on time. We figured we would go straight to the E Tower, then to Notre Dame area and see what we could see, heading back to train when time ran out. However, we wondered if going first to the Arc and climbing it would fit, or if it is very time consuming. Not knowing how long we will be at the tower--no more tickets avail on that day for skipping line--I don't know if it is wise to start at Arc.

Thoughts on that schedule? Arc, then Tower, then Notre Dame as time allows? We'll bus to arc and possibly on to Tower, then walk along Seine to ND . . . All very rough in outline.

Thank you so much for your help!!
