This is a very quick question but does anybody know the nearest metro station to the arc de triomphe?

Thanks very much!

You wouldn't think a station with that name would be the nearest!

Yeah well Etoile means star in French. And Arc de triumphe looks like a star from above, around 12 avenues arriving in the same point.

It's a bit tricky, I know hehe


cheers

Well, considering the station is right at Etoile, it does make sense. If you want to take a little stroll, you could always get off at Franklin D. Rosevelt and walk up to the Arc.

Well, the Arc is not really the one that looks like a star, but the streets that meet up there

Yep, the Arc de Triomphe is located at Place de l'Etoile, hence the name "Charles de Gaulle-Etoile". Anyway everything in France is called Charles De Gaulle, so...
