Best views of Paris

Eiffel Tower

Best paris views Ultimate paris guide

The third level of the Eiffel Tower has one of the best views over Paris, stretching for 70 km, as far as the outskirts of the French capital, Charles de Gaulle airport and the countryside beyond its suburbs. If your aim is to admire Paris itself, it is better to come down to the second platform, from where everything will look closer and you will be able to see the city’s most famous monuments in detail. Our concierge will recommend you Le Jules Verne restaurant, which is a Michelin Star restaurant located at the second of the Eiffel Tower.

The view of the Paris skyline from the top of the Montmartre Hill is one of the most reputed of the capital. Fewer people know that it is possible to enjoy a much better view by climbing to the dome of the Sacré-Cœur Basilica. The vista from the external gallery is breathtaking and extends for over 30 km on a clear day.

Tour Montparnasse

The 56th floor of Tour Montparnasse is ideally located to discover all of Paris: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Montmartre and the Luxembourg Garden appear under new perspectives.

Arc de Triomphe

arc de triomphe best views of paris

The panoramic view from the platform of Arc de Triomphe is amazing as it displays the twelve avenues departing from the Place de l’Étoile. The viewing platform also offers a fine view over the whole Historical Axis, from the Louvre to the Grande Arche in the CBD of La Défense. The best time of the day to appreciate the fine view is to go up at dusk on a sunny day when most of Paris will then be illuminated with the light of the setting sun.

Visitors can either use the lift or climb the 284 steps to reach the panoramic platform.

Parc de Belleville

While crowds flock to Montmartre's notorious Place des Ternes for views of the city, make a beeline to the beautiful Parc de Belleville—Paris's highest park—where you'll find space to breath among lush gardens and one of the city's last remaining vineyards. In the heart of the park, the welcoming Maison de l'Air offers visitors an original take on Paris, with exhibits on that most essential of elements—the air. Learn about how native plants, insects, and birds use it, and how air transmits sound.
