View = the whole area that you can see from somewhere, especially when you can see a long way into the distance; scene: ‘His studio has a spectacular view over Sydney Harbour Bridge.’ ‘I’ve booked a room with a view of the sea.’

When you are talking about the act of seeing something, use the sight of: ‘The sight of so many people dying from disease and hunger made me feel ill.’

Look at/admire/enjoy the view (NOT see/watch): ‘We asked the driver to stop the car so that we could look at the view.’

Have/get a (good) view from a particular place (NOT see): ‘If you stand where I am, you get a much better view.’
