    You shouldn't confuse this triumphal arch with the Arc de Triomphe d'Etoile, which is twice as big and is located at the other end of the Champs Elysée.

    The quadriga on the arch goes back to a reproduction of the four golden horses of San Marco in Venice. Napoleon had the originals brought to Paris in 1797 after the victorious Italian campaign, together with the Lion of San Marco as the symbol of the Republic of Venice, which he had crushed.
