A French friend gave me a list of things to see in Paris – a chocolate factory, perfume museum, and the panorama terrace in Le Printemps, a fancy department store. It took us a while to find the 9th floor, since Le Printemps is three buildings filled with Cartier watches, Gucci hand bags, Tiffany jewelry, and designer clothes. But the viewing platform and restaurant – Deli-cieux – were worth the effort. From the rooftop, you can see the tops of all the famous monuments. It’s the perfect spot for a late afternoon beer or wine. And when it gets dark, once an hour the Eiffel Tower sparkles with flashing lights. We stayed so late, we were offered free bread rolls.
Note: The toilet on the first floor is well worth the 1€ admission!
Thanks to Catherine for the local knowledge.
