My brother was in town last week and we went all the way up the Eiffel Tower. The weather was horrible and we got soaking wet but I managed to get some nice views of Paris. Granted, a little touristy but I love it anyway.
In this view you can see South West Paris, the Seine river and some of the bridges. In the tip of the island on the river you can spot a replica of the Statue of Liberty. More on that subject in a few days.
