Parc des Buttes Chaumont

Paris has some of the best parks for enjoying relaxing picnics and spending time outdoors. Parc des Buttes Chaumont is the 5th largest Parisian park and offers incredible views of the city as well! It’s beautiful lake, romantic pathways, and greenery are an added bonus. It’s definitely a place to soak in some views while in Paris.

Musee d’Orsay

The Musée d’Orsay is one of the most famous museums in France, but if you climb up to the clock tower is it also one of the best views. From the tower you can take in breathtaking views of the city including the Louvre, river Seine, and Sacré Coeur.

Montparnasse Tower

The Montparnasse Tower is easily accessible with panoramic views of Paris – without the stairs! The tower elevators will take you to the 56th or 59th floor where you can spend time on an open-air terrace or the rooftop. You can enjoy dinner at Le Ciel de Paris or just enjoy the views but either way you want to add this to your list for your next trip!

The Balloon of the Parc André Citroën

This is a more unique experience for those of you looking for something different. The hot air balloon located at Parc André Citroën will take you 150 meters (492 feet) above Paris for magical views of the city. There is a limited amount of people that are able to go up at a time so this is a great option for those of you looking for an attraction that isn’t overcrowded with tourist.
