views from the top: from the grand to the intimate
Climb some four hundred steps up the bell tower of Notre Dame Cathedral, and you end up about 20 stories above Paris. Take in the view, from the monumental--the Pantheon! the Eiffel Tower!--to the domestic--a rooftop terrace garden on the Île de la Cité. Few cities are as celebrated in images as The City of Light, but even Paris has its quiet corners.
