top 10 des plus belles vues de Paris

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

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