Who would dare say no to a quick brunch with 360° of Paris? No one! On my last trip to Paris before heading out to Australia my boyfriend and I decided on a weekend visit to Paris before I disappeared off to Australia for two weeks. Having skipped breakfast in the morning it wasn't long before we needed a caffeine break from exploring Paris' beautiful streets. What was to be a quick stop at Printemps turned out to be a long brunch as the views on Printemps Rooftop Terrace are just breathtaking. Right in the heart of Paris you can get a bite to eat, drink and have the best view in town and all 360° of it.
From Printemps' Le Deli-Cieux Rooftop Terrace Cafe you can see Montmartre, Eiffel Tower, Opera de Garnier. If you haven't been to Au Printemps then it's high time you added it to your list. It's pretty big, taking up about 5 buildings with an endless list of designer levels set on 6 storeys of the building. From Women's Fashion to Men's and everything you can possibly need for your house, cat and dog all housed in this beautiful spot in the city. With a rambling stomach and major pangs for coffee, shopping was far from my mind.
It was breezy and cold but with the sun out it offered just enough warmth to bear. With Parisian icons in almost every direction its a shame and a treat at the same time that not many tourists know about this place. Next time you are in Paris, be sure to add a quick visit to Au Printemps for a quick tea or coffee with a view to match when you next visit Paris. The beauty of this place is that it offer a viewing platform of the city all without having to pay for it. Unless of course you are getting some food in the rooftop cafe. Either way its well worth the trip to the top.
