Tour Montparnasse is awesome , the view is stunning and worth a look. Adult price is 17 Euro and for that you just get the view :-( It's very touristy-money orientated there and on every step they want you to spend, take pictures and pay, souvenirs, bars etc... and I would have liked to be able to at least use...

We had no idea what to expect as booked this as part of a package. To say we were all surprised is an understatement. There were no queues, the staff were excellent and very, very friendly. We quickly passed security (don't put money through the machine it is frowned upon and rightly so) to the lifts that took us to... More

Book online in advance and walk in, simple as that. It offers great 360 degree views of Paris from a very good vantage point. A professional camera is recommended..

Although not so charming, a fast and single elevator trip without queues leads you to a covered and glazed room from where you have a better view of Paris than you have of the Eiffell Tower. Touching screens show you the monuments and building. One level above, an open terrace let you see the city as a 360 degres view... More

I was suggested to go to Montparnasse by my sister in law and It is worth every penny. You can see all of Paris from top, in every angle and with all the most important attractions! There is a telescope also if you want to see a more detailed look. Loved it!

Similar views that the ones you get from the Eiffel Tower but this one actually includes the Eiffel Tower in your pictures for a fraction of the cost. Less crowded and if you get before sunset you are going to have an amazing views. Wait for the light show of the Eiffel Tower is magnificent!

Neighbourhood Profile
Montparnasse
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 gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
