The most beautiful panoramic views of Paris

Capital cities are synonymous with grandeur and dense architecture. What could be more irresistible than embracing Paris by walking its improvised skyscrapers?

Three museums offer spectacular vistas of Greater Paris: the Musée d’Orsay, the roof of the Institut du Monde Arabe and the Centre Pompidou Terrace. Besides the splendid exhibitions they offer, the panoramas are exceptional. A climb up to the mezzanine of the former Orsay train station (now home to the museum) is not to be missed. From this viewpoint through its clock, you can admire the Seine and the prestigious monuments that adorn it.

The most sought-after Parisian rooftops of the moment are the terraces of the Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann and of the Printemps-Haussmann. The highly popular Perchoir du Marais, nestled on the roof of the BHV Marais, promises a taste of all that Paris has to offer – with great cocktails and a chic and cosy ambiance.These are perfect opportunities to take some stunning selfies.
