This site offers truly breathtaking panoramas so I had to share it with you.

When you arrive the first thing you’ll notice is that the site is in French. You can either let your browser translate it (I use Google Chrome and it does it with a click of a button) or you can click English Version beneath the image on the right of the page.   I think that the site is fairly easy to navigate even in French. 

I suggest that after you’ve translated the page you click on the third featured selection on the main page. This will open up in another window a panorama of Paris that was photographed from the sky at a height that is taller than the Eiffel Tower. It is amazing! That’s how I actually found this site and originally I was just going to bring you that panoramic view but then I tried the link on its own and it won’t load. It works every time from the main page though. 

If you go to the Panoramas section you’ll find a whole lot more in the way of panoramas that will keep you busy for a while. I will say I wouldn’t let kids browse the site alone as there is some nudity in the performance art panoramas. 

I think I’ve watched the panorama of the Paris sky ten times. You’ll find navigation controls at the bottom of the panorama including a speaker button to turn off the music. Or you can use your mouse to drag around and explore the panorama. 

Go grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and enjoy the view of Paris from the comfort of your computer.
