A Seat On Top of Paris

Rooftop Terrace of Le Printemps,  Paris

There are certain sunsets that happen over the city of Paris where I wish I could have a view over the rooftops…

Well, I do. I have a seat, and so do you!  On top of Le Printemps Haussman, on a café terrace with a beverage in hand, to enjoy the incredible panoramic view.

I randomly headed there to have a look one day after work, when I felt like having a little peek at this terrace that I had yet to explore. It’s not as exclusive as ones I have experience, so perhaps not as chic, but who cares, it’s open to all and it still has an amazing view that you JUST CAN’T BEAT.

The café is more of a cafeteria, where you purchase what you wish to consume at a counter and bring it to your own table. But again, who cares, did I mention the VIEW!?!

I had a nice phone chat with my twin sister while I sipped a fresh beverage and looked and looked and looked upon my city with sparkles in my eyes.

Head over to the Grand Magasins quarter and take the escalators to the top floor where you have access to the café and the giant terrace. You are not obliged to purchase anything to just head up to enjoy the view and take some photos, and take in an occasional sunset…
