From the "Printemps" rooftop


Going to the rooftop of the department stores "Le Printemps" is definitely a must do when you're in Paris. The place offers a great view on Paris and it's free ! Here you can see the splendid newly renovated details of the Printemps building and in the background lies the Opera house. I will show more views this week ...

Yes, this view from the sky just went to the top of my "must do" list, Laurent. The exquisite renovations of Le Printemps are superbe. Refreshing perspective and a great shot. The sky looks like a watercolor painting.

I love this view. I think I have almost the same photo somewhere. Great shot Laurent. I love all the curlyques on the domes!

One of my favorite spot. I always get the "ile flottante" (floating islande) when I am at the cafeteria.

Certainly on my list of 'to do's' for the next visit!

Oh my gosh, this is just gorgeous. I haven't done this and now it's number one on my list for my next Paris visit. What a view.

I made it to the rooftop of Le Printemps this past April. The views were definitely worth the visit. Looking forward to seeing your other photos.

I miss the view from 'La Samaritaine' and now I have another roof cafe to vist next time I am in Paris. Thanks for all your photos, they are better than a tourist brochure.
