Parisian Monuments with Incredible Views

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower from the Seine, the river in the foreground, the sky a light shade of blue with some white wispy clouds Address: Champ de Mars, 5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007 Paris (7th Arrondissement)
How to get here: Accessible by Metro Line 6, (Bir-Hakeim station) Metro Line 9 (Trocadero); and RER Line C (Champs de Mars – Tour Eiffel station)
Cost: Timed tickets are available between open and close (8am – 11.45pm) each day. Tickets can include elevators from the bottom to the top of the Eiffel Tower, or stairwell access to the second floor (only), or stairwell and elevator access to the top. Be sure to grab your tickets before you go, as they are likely to sell out during peak and summer months.

The Eiffel Tower, a Parisian icon, promises breathtaking views from its various levels. Whether you climb the stairs to the first and second level, or ride two elevators straight to the top, you’ll be rewarded with incredible views of the city, Trocadéro gardens, and the Seine.

The first and second levels show visitors a vast cityscape, whereas the summit provides a spectacular 360-degree panorama. However, it comes with a unique drawback. While you marvel at the stunning cityscape from this quintessential Paris viewpoint, the defining silhouette of Paris, the Eiffel Tower itself, is absent from your view. Standing inside this monumental structure means you’re immersed in the very symbol of Paris that dominates the skyline.

Perched atop the artistic Montmartre district, Sacré-Cœur Basilica offers a captivating panorama of Paris.

The panoramic terrace of the Arc De Triomphe offers some splendid 360º views of Paris.
