If you want a great spot to see Paris at night with the Eiffel Tower included, this is it. The lines are not too long and you can get a student discount. In the summer visit it around 9pm to see the sunset and watch the city trasnforming itself at night

Phenomenal views of Paris, day and evening. Worth the price of the tickets. Travel in Europe's fastest elevator, and all of the famous Parisienne landmarks are recognisable.

We went here on Bastille Day to watch the fireworks over the Eiffel tower. Should have maybe gone earlier, though we heard that the professional photographers (who were taking up most of the good camera spots through the viewing slits on the roof) had been there since as early as 1pm. Things were very crowded on the roof, with a... More

At 56 stories, I believe the Tour Montparnasse is higher than the Eiffel Tower. It is also cheaper, less crowded and much less hassle, due to shorter lines , newer elevators and smaller crowds. We went up at dusk and got a 360 degree view of Paris that included the Tour Eiffel. They offer both indoor and outdoor viewing decks.... More

We did Tour Montparnasse about an hour after we arrived in Paris, not wanting to get right into the sightseeing since we were tired from our journey. We took the Metro and got there in no time. I liked the views from Tour Montparnasse because you could really see all the famous spots in Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, which... More

We managed to get 20% off the price with some vouchers we picked up in our hotel lobby so keep your eye out for these if you plan to go up this attraction. The view from the roof is spectacular and unlike the Eiffel Tower has some helpful graphics that point out what you are looking at. They have staff... More

It was an unusually cold and windy day (for July) when we visited this attraction so we did not go to the roof, but we did go to level 56 from which you can see all of Paris through floor-to-ceiling windows. When we visited the Eifel Tower days before we wondered what this tall black skyscraper was that rivals the... More

I had never heard of the Monparnasse Tower, but a friend recommended it. I can say I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the attraction itself was simply fantastic. The views were amazing, and you could easily spot landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Notra Dame Cathedral and the Arc De Triomphe! There were interactive... More

If you are any sort of decent photographer this is a waste of money! I went to get some night shots with long-exposure & its completely inadequate for photography. The top level, the terrace, is completely enclosed with reflective glass, and beyond the glass (about 1m out) is a steel railing! You can't use a tripod in front of the... More

Dear Chris M M, Thank you for your comment that will help us to improve our services and the satisfaction of our visitors. Actually, the Montparnasse 56 observation visit offers two visitor levels: - The 56th that enables you to discover Paris thanks to interactive quizz and panormas... - The 59th which offers you the most spectacular view of Paris...

This attraction was just what the doctor ordered. After spending half the day on a bus in traffic barely seeing anything except souvenir shops and McDonalds' we were free to enter this skyscraper - yes they have them in Paris- and after a very short wait we soared to the top and were treated to a 360 degree view of...
