I took this photo at the biginning of December during my short visit to Paris.
This incredible construction is placed in the “Parc de la Villette” at the Cité des Sciences et de lIndustrie (City of Science and Industry) in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, France.
La Géode (geodisic dome) is 36 metres (118 ft) in diameter and it is composed of 6,433 polished stainless steel triangles that form the sphere that reflects the sky.
La Géode is movies there where movies are projected in IMAX format on a giant hemispherical screen that covers 1,000 square metres (11,000 sq ft).
I was there in morning and almost nobody was around, an amazing impression as in a science fiction movie!
Form the top deck of the Eiffel Tower you can see most of the city’s famed landmarks, From Montparnasse Tower (one of Paris’ only skyscrapers) you will enjoy a breathtaking panorama and from Arc de Triomphe you will see not only the Eiffel Tower but also the Avenue des Champs-Elysees and the Tuileries Gardens.
Today I will propose you an alternative: the terrace of the Galeries Lafayette. It’s an amazing viewpoint! It’s very simple and easy, no waiting timne, you need only to visit this wonderful department store (don’t miss it!) and enjoy the great view from the roof terrrace .
In summertime there is a rooftop café there as well!
