Most famous views in Paris
Paris is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world and to admire it properly in all its magnificence everyone should see it from one of its views. Of course, the most famous view in Paris is from the Eiffel tower, but like many other ones you have to pay to get in and it takes a lot of time queuing. Hence, if you want to save time and money or just see the city from a different point of view, here are some beautiful views of Paris you should know.
The hill of Montmartre
Montmartre, located in the 18th arrondissement, is one of the most famous districts thanks to its artistic history and the night clubs like Le Moulin Rouge. But another thing that makes it so famous is the hill, where the Sacré-Coeur Basilica is also located, overlooking the Ville Lumière and the rest of the city.
Gallerie Printemps and Gallerie Lafayette’s roofs
These two well known department stores are the favourite tourist destination for shopping lovers, but they offer also a stunning view over the city from the roof where are also located bars and restaurants.
Parc de Belleville
This park isn’t the most known but it is definitely worth seeing for the breathtaking panoramic view of the capital. Belleville park has also a wooden village for children and a water course, while the hill overlooks the Eiffel tower, the Pantheon and other important monuments.
Georges Pompidou centre
This modern building, designed by Renzo Piano, houses the Public Information Library, the largest museum of modern art in Europe and a centre of music and acoustic research. But the Pompidou centre offers also a spectacular view from the sixth floor 36 metres high. Every first Sunday of the month the admission is free.
Esplanade du Trocadéro
This is not the highest place in Paris, but is definitely one of the most famous that also offers a wonderful view over the city, especially during the sunset.
