What about the kids?

Sipping a cocktail on a rooftop can quickly become a stressful time if you come with the kids. We know something about it (find the story of WanderWorldhere)

In addition, enjoying a panorama of the city without breaking the bank, when you are a large family it is mission impossible.

That’s why we offer these alternatives more suited to family travel and/or more limited budgets.


The Parisian department stores, be it Galeries Lafayette (7th floor) or the Spring (9th floor) also offer stunning views of Paris.

Accessible to all budgets (you just have to take the escalator or the elevator), these terraces are a (very) good plan when you are in Paris with family and you do not want to deprive yourself for a moment in the 7th sky 🙂

Bring a little drink and things to nibble on and you’re done. The children will be delighted with their experience…


We hope that this article will have made you want to enjoy theextraordinary views that Paris offers.
