In Paris, you can do almost every activity or entertainment you prefer. There are bar, restaurants, gardens… even cinemas on rooftops! When I suggest how to spend time in Paris in Paris Travel Planning, I always recommend admiring Paris from above. You can do it for free, taking Montmartre funicular. Or, you can take the chance to spend some times on a Parisian rooftop! Admiring views and architectural marvels from a terrace is always exciting.
