We booked these tickets in advance, we were allowed to visit anytime. We decided to go in the evening when it was dark to take advantage of a quieter time and also to see Paris at night. A lift takes you to the 56th floor in just a few seconds, you can then go up 2 flights of stairs to... More

This is the best view in Paris as you can see it all, crucially the Eiffel Tower. It is better than the EIffel Tower for the following reasons: a) if you go to the top of the ET you can't see the ET but from Montparnasse you can, b) much cheaper than the ET and never a queue. Montparnasse is... More

A spectacular view of Paris from the top, only downside is the queue (but it is clear why!). Better than going up Eiffel Tower (mainly because you then get the Eiffel Tower to look at). Indoor and outdoor viewing places and nice shop at the top

We booked before we arrived in Paris and at one point it looked as if we weren't going to make it but I'm delighted we did as it was a brilliant experience. The views from the panoramic area at the top are wonderful, especially at night time and there's a champagne bar shoudl you fancy a glass. The floor below... More

We were staying in the area and saw that this tower had good reviews regarding its view. Althought the view was pleasant, it was ridiculously expensive 14.50 Euro/person. We were able to walk to the second deck of the Eiffel Tower for 5 Euro/person for a much better view. It did have a 360 terrace at the top but it... More

Dear 123and123, Thank you for your comments. The Montparnasse 56 Observation Visit offers two visitor levels: Visitors can discover Paris from a whole new angle through an original, high-tech tour on the 56th floor before taking in the most spectacular view of Paris from the top of the panoramic terrace on the 59th floor. Our panoramic terrace is equipped with... More

We had a lovely, panoramic view of Paris, to include the Eiffel Tower with very little wait time. This is a must do event while in Paris.

Having tried to book online for the Eiffel Tower, we stumbled across this tower. Although the building is an ugly blot on the Parisian landscape, once at the top you only get to see the best sights! We booked online and got straight in plus the ticket is valid for a year so it's possible to make a night time... More

Paris has 2 very talk buildings/ structures: Tour Montparnasse and the Eiffel Tower. The view from the Eiffel Tower shows the Paris skyline including the (fairly ugly) Tour Montparnasse. The view from Tour Montparnasse includes all the Parisian sights- including the Eiffel Tower. It is also higher. Furthermore, it is pretty cheap, and the queues were almost non-existent. We visited... More

We went mid-morning. The line was short, but the viewing area was busy. The views are outstanding, and visual aids are placed periodically around the perimeter to help identify some of the more famous locations. It's worth climbing a couple flights to get to the open air viewing space at the top. Clear glass walls protect you from the winds,... More
