The most beautiful views of Paris

Have Paris at your feet with the most beautiful views of the city

A trip to the third floor of the Eiffel Tower for a panoramic view over the whole of Paris is a must. The view from in front of the Sacré-Coeur Basilica, at the top of the Butte Montmartre, is also a classic sight. Two excellent locations for viewing Paris from on high.

For lovebirds looking for new vantage points, the hill at Belleville offers panoramic views. A terrace café that goes by the pretty name ‘Mon Coeur Belleville’ is a fantastic place to sit and gaze on the lights of the city.

Great views are also guaranteed from the glass-walled escalators at the Pompidou Centre. At the top, you can carry on enjoying the views over a drink at Le Georges, the modern art museum’s terrace restaurant.

At 210 m high, the 56th floor of the Tour Montparnasse towers over the city and offers a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower and the rest of Paris. For those with a sense of daring, the tethered Ballon de Paris at the Parc André Citroën invites lovebirds for an  offbeat ride full of adventure.
