The next stop on our digital field trip is France! Sometimes, the most interesting things to look at are hidden from view. Take a look at this tour of 5 Parisian Rooftops. You'll get to see Paris from a completely different perspective. Click on the icon of a person on each rooftop so that you can spin the map around to see the top of Paris from every direction.
