Today’s Wordless Wednesday is another from our 2007 trip to Europe. We previously shared photos of the White Cliffs of Dover in Wordless Wednesday #16 and Big Ben in Wordless Wednesday #5. It was very exciting to see the Arc de Triomphe in person since a painting of the triumphal arch has hung in our house for as long as we can remember.

WW 18 Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe was built from 1806 to 1836. It was commissioned by Napoleon to honor the Grand Armée. The arch was modeled after the Arch of Titus in Rome, according to Napoleon.org.

Happy Wednesday!
