TOP 5 : BEST PARIS VIEWS
It is when we look from the top of the city that we realize the architectural richness of Paris… when you’ll look at the city from my favorite viewpoints, also never forget that Paris is the densest city in Europe!
I have made for you a TOP 5 of my best Paris views : I hope you’ll find your happiness to choose your favorite view of the city! I like the places that I will present you for different reasons and above all, at the expense of my moods and … the weather!
From the Arc de Triomphe : the most majestic Paris view
You have in front of you the Paris of kings! Indeed, the most grandiose axis of the city is in front of you: the Champs-Élysées, ending at the Place de la Concorde and then on the Jardin des Tuileries. Thus, already three emblematic places of Paris mentioned in the first line of description and yet we have not yet turned our heads!
On your left, you’ll see the Montmartre Hill and its famous basilica watching over Parisians since the end of the 19th century. And on your right, here is my favorite when I am at the top of the Arc de Triomphe… The Eiffel Tower seems to escape from the buildings of the 16th district.
This feeling comes especially from the fact that we dont perceive the Seine from this Paris view!
Where ? Place Charles de Gaulle, 75008 Paris
From Montmartre : the ultimate panoramic view
From the Galeries Lafayette rooftop: the most immersive Paris view
The Galeries Lafayette rooftop is open to the public every day from 9:30 am to 8 pm (depending on weather and sanitary conditions) and allows you – for free – to look at the city differently while you’re in the middle of it.
The monuments seem to be closer to each other and it’s also the ideal place to admire the nearby Parisian-style buildings and roofs.
From Belleville : the most Parisian view
From the Ferris wheel : the most unusual Paris view
Indeed, I had never seen Paris from this angle: you are in the center of the city with on one side the Parisian rooftops as far as the eye can see, until you see the « Sacré Coeur ». On the other side, there are the straight lines of the Jardin des Tuileries designed by André Le Nôtre and then the Musée d’Orsay.
Where ? Jardin des Tuileries, 75001 PARIS
