Top 07 Places to Take Photos in Paris – The city of lights and love abounds with fine places for photography!

Evoking a sense of intrigue and wonder in her visitors with famous icons, avenues with French character, and gothic architecture, Paris is famous for cafes and gardens and Parisian rooftops all providing elegant and outstanding locations to take photos during your Parisian rendezvous.


The Eiffel Tower

It is no wonder that visitors love to capture a shot of the magnificent Icon, the Eiffel Tower. Fortunately, there are plenty of vantage points across the city to get a photo of this tower. The best spot is right from underneath it, however, a few good alternative spots are possible some of which are the Banks of the river Seine, to have the tower framed by trees, or from Trocadero square which is full of gardens situated by the side of the Eiffel Tower or even from the rooftop café of Printemps Department store as used by visitors at heritage hotels.


The Louvre

Built originally in the 12th century as a fortress Louvre is now the most visited museum in the world. It is also one of the most inspiring photography locations in Paris and is a central landmark of this capital city of France. Housing over 30,000 objects from history, an entire day is not enough to photograph the interior. Outside of the museum are spaces artistically landscaped with gardens and spaces for people to enjoy, admire and capture photos.


Avenue des Champs-Elysees

This world-renowned avenue is a bustling hive of activity throughout the day with shoppers and office-goers. However, as dusk falls and shops and offices close for the day and the streets become empty of people savour a good view of Arc de Triomphe, a beautiful iconic monument inspired by the great arches of antiquity standing proudly at the top of the avenue. This is admired often by guests from Discover ASR. With the traffic lights aglow beneath it, you can easily stand on the pedestrian island and capture this iconic monument.


Saint Michel

Walk down the charming cobbled streets lined with cafes and restaurants oozing with delightful food, bonhomie and relaxation. An ideal place to wander and capture those natural images of street scenes. If you stroll along Rue de la Bucherie and Rue Saint Severin you pass those traditional Creperies and plenty of interesting street scenes.



Displaying the epitome of the French character Montmartre is home to street artists and residents who have natural creativity. Even though it may seem busy and filled with tourists, move further from Place du Tertre, the artist square and you encounter a quaint village atmosphere unlike at other places in Paris. Experience the ambience around peek into La Maison Rose and capture those captivating photos.


Jardin du Luxembourg

Well-known for tree-lined promenades and chestnut groves, among fountains and garden space this is a green oasis at which you can hire a sailing boat to glide across towards Palais du Luxembourg and capture some photos close to nature.
