In Paris all roads lead to the Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile.  At least that’s what it seems like from the top of the monument.  And it looks that way on the map too.  Twelve roads radiate like spokes into metropolitan Paris from the center of the arc. A line of monuments and a major thoroughfare, the Axe historique, extends from Le Louvre through the Arc de Triomphe to La Defense.  The Arc de Triomphe sits at a privileged position in Paris.
