I asked around for advice on the best views in Paris, thinking we'd check out a rooftop bar or the like. Repeatedly I was told to go here - and my friends were right. This place has indoor and outdoor options. Really amazing views, and...More

Having pre-booked tickets on the tower’s website, security was a breeze going through several ticket checks then the extremely quick lift up to the top! We walked the extra two floors to the panoramic roof terrace, which has clearer views than the floors below due...More

The views are awesome. The ticket is a bit expensive, specially if you have to pay 2€ to use the binoculars. The ticket is free for people who work in the Tower.

The actual building is run down slightly but the views make up for it. You can buy a drink at the bar and sit and relax while u take in this 360 view of the city.

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
