top 10 most beautiful views of Paris

We think about it less often, but among the top 10 most beautiful views of Paris, we also suggest you :

  • a turn on the roof of Galeries Lafayette. The view is breathtaking on the Opera and Montmartre in particular. It's free !
  • the hot air balloon of Paris (Generali balloon). Located in the André Citroën garden, this hot air balloon is accessible every day in good weather. It is an original way to see Paris from above
  • the view from the Grande Arche de la Défense. Unusual view of Paris with in the foreground the axis La Défense, place de l'Etoile, Champs-Elysées, Concorde and Louvre
  • and finally,  perhaps one of the most beautiful views of Paris Spectacular and in our opinion unavoidable, Paris from the Seine with  a cruise on the Seine
