We visited Montparnasse to view the sunset and we were not let down, it is beautiful and will not disappoint. Only downside is that it's stairs up and down to the view point so can be problematic if you cannot handle fights of stairs. If you are in Paris, definitely a must to see the views of Paris

I have visited the Montparnasse Tour by night and it was a good experience to see Paris by night (under the lights).

Got off the TGV train from Nantes at 9:20 am and headed to the tower. I took my carry on luggage with me with no problem. Showing them Rick Steves book gave me a discount ticket. The views were fantastic. There is a cafe and a gift shop on the 56th floor. Staff speak English. Buses as the base of... More

As this place is open till about 10 at night, I recommend that you visit it after the sun sets. On the 56th floor, this place gives a panoramic view of the whole of Paris and it is mesmerizing. The city glitters. It is the tallest building in Paris and therefore it gives the best view of the entire city.... More

A trip to the observation level of the Tower of Montparnasse provides a breathtaking view of the entire city of Paris. You can walk around inside or you can climb up a few more flights of stairs and walk around on the very top of the building outside. Either way, the views are fantastic and provide a great way to...

By far the best views over Paris. Tour Montparnasse might be ugly and dominating the city skyline but if you are on top of it, you 'll have an unobscured view of beautiful Paris. We visited the observatoire on a sunny day in January, and I counted only 30 people...

It was a bit foggy in Paris when we visited the Tour Montparnasse. Maybe that is why they gave us a discount (or is it just the season ?). The view over Paris was great, with the Eiffel tower and La Défense lined up behind each other. It was a bit windy and cold despite the glass wall that protected... More

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.
