Our guide to the top five views in Paris

People often accuse Parisians of being as grumpy as hell, but did you know, Paris happens to be THE MOST VISITED CITY IN THE WHOLE WORLD. Imagine if your town or city was constantly packed with visitors… I’m sure you wouldn’t always be full of cheer and bonhomie.

So, whenever you are in Paris again, feel free to observe our grumpiness from a safe distance 😉

You can do this from:

La Tour Montparnasse

The rooftop terrace boasts a breathtaking 360-degree view of Paris. On a clear night you’ll have a fantastic panoramic view (approx. 40 kilometres!) that takes in many famous landmarks, including the illuminated Eiffel Tower.”

Le Sacré Cœur

Located in hilly Montmartre, you reach the Sacré Coeur via a flight of stairs. Built in 1875, it has maintained its white colour thanks to the stones it was constructed from; when it rains they react with water and release a chemical that acts like bleach! Ingénieux, non?

La Notre Dame

Did you know that this monument is celebrating its 850th birthday? Lots of brand new shiny bells have recently been delivered to add a little extra chime/charm to the place. A visit to the towers is not for the faint-hearted. 387 steps! Pack an inhaler.

L’Arc de Triomphe

Built by Napoleon, the rooftop will give you a gorgeous view of the twelve prestigious avenues radiating from the arc – including the Champs Elysées. Check out the action on the crazy “Place de l’Etoile” roundabout – nothing but honking horns and “un bruit infernal”!

La Tour Eiffel

Not many people have heard of this particular monument! It’s just nine metres shorter than the Sydney Eye Tower, and from the third floor you’ll see most of the city.


Top tip: don’t forget to film the lift trip for a bit of juicy bragging when you come home!
