How can any tourist spend their valuable time in Paris in visiting a modern tower only for the view it provides? Perhaps, there are those who need the view.

Myself and my mum came to the tower on the 13th October in the late afternoon. The views are spectacular, especially if you go outside. It was so nice how there were no queues. It must be one of, if not the best place to take photos and see the whole of Paris. Great afternoon.

This building is the reason that there is a high restriction on buildings in Paris. It's a huge buliding that should be in London or New York not Paris! Now it does host a good view of the city, in fact a great view and you have a clear view of the Eiffel Tower.

If you want a view of Paris including the eiffel tower go there, close to the gallerie lafayette and worth the money. Go upstairs and enjoy the panoramic view either from the outside platform or the inside panoramic deck.

There's no better view than from this place, even better then the Eiffel Tower because it's an indoor place and no wind will bother you

The best views of the city. Brilliant outlook over all regions and a great way to appreciate the alignment of the Avenues and Boulevards. Could return and take in more anytime.

It's better to visit Montparnasse tower than Eiffel, because from Eiffel tower you can't see Eiffel tower :) And there are much less people, you are almost alone on the roof.

The old joke says that the best views of Paris are from the Tour Montparnasse, because it's the only place from where the skyline is not blighted by the ugly Tour Montparnasse. The old joke is true! The views are absolutely amazing. We were lucky with the weather, and could see for miles. The lift was speedy too. The top... More

It's not the most beautiful architecture but it is a stunning view. You can stay as long as you want and I would suggest an hour before sunset maybe, depending on the time of year, reservations are important. its a photo ops, it's not about ambiance...

Neighborhood Profile
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 center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
