Paris City Views

Here are my list of places for the best city views in Paris.

Basilique du Sacre-Coeur

A beautiful church atop the highest hill in Paris. Sacre-Coeur is free and open to the public. Inside you'll find beautiful mosaics of religious scenes and figures. The city view from the front steps of the church is magnificent as well. A great panoramic view of the city. Below the steps, there are...

Notre Dame Cathedral

Notre Dame de Paris, French for "Our Lady of Paris". One of the most visited places in Paris, and it's free! If you want to go up to the top for the view, then you will pay a small fee. Inside the cathedral are beautiful stain glass windows and lots of gargoyle figures inside and outside. It is considered...

Eiffel Tower

Paris- la ville lumière - “the City of Light”. The Eiffel Tower is such a beautiful and iconic structure. To think that it was once an eyesore to many and the French protested against it. This is a must-see when in Paris, going up the tower, dining at the restaurant, seeing it from afar, and the best time...

Le Ciel de Paris

One of the best places to see the sunset, city view, and Eiffel Tower. Come here for sunset, and you'll be amazed at the view and the city. The bar staff is friendly and they don't pressure you if you just sit at the bar for a drink while you watch and wait for the Eiffel Tower lights to come on at night....

Centre Georges Pompidou

The Pompidou is a cool place inside and out. There's a fun water fountain for kids to watch and play around, a huge plaza area where people just hang out, play music, sell crafts, and people watch. Inside the Centre, there are a few levels of museum galleries. Georges Restaurant is upstairs, where you...

Gardens of the Trocadero

Another great area to view the Eiffel Tower from the grounds. Coming off the metro station, you have an amazing direct view of the Tower. The fountains are lovely and you can walk around the garden and grounds.

Arc de Triomphe

Another famous landmark in Paris. It's where many of the city roads leads to this circle spot. The entrance to the Arc is through an underground passage. It's a small spiral staircase leading up to the top. There's a small museum and gift shop inside the tunnel in the Arc. At the top you'll have a nice 360...

Terrass Hotel

A nice hotel in Montmartre. The rooftop terrace is like a secret gem. It's on the 7th floor of the hotel. If you happen to get seated close to the terrace facing the street, you will have a nice view of the city. Drinks are not cheap, but the view is nice....


At the top of the Printemps' Beaute & Maison building is a rooftop cafe. It is open to the public. On top, you have a beautiful 360 degree view of the city.
