Many say that the view from Arc de Triomphe over Paris is much more interesting and nicer than the view from the Eiffel Tower. I must disagree with this statement, even if I heard it myself. The truth is that from the 50 meters of the Arc you can see clearly the marvelous buildings, but the view from 324 meters of the Eiffel Tower is simply breathtaking.
