Sleep among the stars
When you look at them from below, they seem well-behaved. But if you climb up, you'll discover that Parisian rooftops hide a rowdy aerial life. Think we're bluffing? What if we told you that we've already clinked glasses, taken pictures, danced, made love and even swam on them? Surprised? We'll lend you a ladder so you can see for yourself.
Go For a Walk
Start with an easy rooftop terrace. Scale up the wall and heave yourself onto Paris' rooftops by following the lead of Marcel, our passionate rooftop junkie.
What about a view of the Pantheon, the Invalides, Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Trocadero, and Sacré Coeur all at once? Sip cocktails at this panoramic bar where you can see every single Parisian monument. You won't know if it's the view or the cocktails making you dizzy.
