My title says it all - the best views of the Eiffel Tower are from the Montparnasse. Come at dusk so you can see the Eiffel tower twinkle in the night. So magical!

The Tour Montparnasse is always worth visiting. But if you want to escape tourist-floods, make a reservation in the Cafe. You get your own elevator and can enjoy an unforgettable view over Paris. The drinks might be a little bit more expensive then elsewhere, but...More

This tower and Montmartre hill are two best places to see Paris from above. The observatory has a nice resting area with very comfortable lounge chairs, too.

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
