The Best Places to View the Eiffel Tower

Arc de Triomphe

You know as a child when you dream about going to Paris and seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time? This is that dream come true. The top of the Arc de Triomphe was the first spot I saw the Eiffel Tower from and it was so surreal. Not only does the Arc de Triomphe present a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower, but it also provides a beautiful view of the city.  There are 284 steps to get to the top of the arch, but it is so worth it. If you go around nightfall you’ll even get to see the Eiffel Tower sparkling.

Printemps

Printemps is a Department Store, but there’s a rooftop terrace that gives breath taking 360  degree views of Paris. You can see both the Eiffel Tower and the Sacre Coeur from here.

Notre Dame Cathedral

While the Cathedral itself is a sight to see, take the 387 steps to get to the top of the cathedral for a spectacular view. FYI: There are AMAZING crepes in the area near the Notre Dame. Definitely try one.
