Paris’ only rooftop bar, Le Perchoir is the city’s worst kept secret. Situated down an innocuous looking street, you’ll think that the bar’s entrance is someone’s house. Hold your ground. Once you make it past the doorman, you’ll see why Parisians continue to flock to this haven in the sky.
The Parc des Buttes-Chaumont has its own grotto, waterfall and suspension bridge. A popular among the locals, the park feels like a small slice of paradise in the city and if you’re looking for a little down time, is a great place to come and rest.
One of the city’s many art galleries, the Palais de Tokyo offers something a little different from the traditional art on show elsewhere.
