Le Printemps, Palais Garnier, et les toits de Paris



2012 Oct 6 Saturday_66DSC_8660


Taken from the rooftop of Printemps, 
one can see the two towers of Printemps, 
the magnificence of Palais Garnier, 
and many familiar outlines of Paris buildings.  


Oh, you will always see many cranes obliterating the skyline.

On voudrait parfois devenir "pigeon" le temps d'une belle balade au-dessus des toits de Paris...
Mais finalement vous êtes ma chère amie un bel oiseau qui nous fait voyager de la même manière.
gros bisous à vous.

Only in Paris. The intricacy in the architecture and the ornate designs on that domed surface are just breathtaking. How fortunate you are to survey such a beautiful city from such terrific vantage points. Thanks for sharing them with us Genie.

This is pretty -- we went to the top of Lafayette -- it's a slightly different view. I love the golden tower here!

The Opéra Garnier is gorgeous from any vantage point, isn't it? I've never been up here, so I'm envying you and now Bibi too!

It is worth going to the rooftops of both Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. You get a different view and both are fabulous.

Bises,

Breathtaking! Remember when they were renovating the Printemps turrets? What a fabulous job they did... It glitters!
