If you are looking for a great view of Paris, you definitely should go to Tour Montparnasse. Here you can enjoy a view similar of the one you get from Eiffel Tower, but with the slight difference of seeing the Eiffel tower.

It was wonderful to see the 360 view of the city. Before you go up to the very top they have touch screen computers that will allow you see and learn about what you are seeing. Learning the history of the sights around the building was great. Once you go up top the views are spectacular.

This building might be a complete eye-sore amongst the beautiful buildings of Paris but thankfully you don't have to see it from the top, where the panoramic views of the city are absolutely fantastic. We went in October and it was not crowded at all; I can imagine that in the height of summer this could be a different story.... More

Took the whole family, all loved this place. No queuing, nice, elegant experience, no hassle even with my 20 month old baby. Go before sunset and stay to watch the sunset over Paris and then Paris at night - magical! Nice coffee bar and not overpriced (indoors), great open platform at the top of the building. If you have to... More

My umpteenth visit to Paris and I never tire of it. I love this place. No queuing, no hassle and I stayed and watched the sunset over Paris - magical! Nice coffee bar and not too overpriced. If through lack of time you need to choose between Eiffel Tower or this, then go for this as is cheaper, much less... More

Got our tickets with excess airline miles, and the tix included a glass of champagne. Decided to go during the day (we had great weather) to see as much as possible. Turned out to be a great idea because after seeing the expansive view here, we didn't feel the need to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower or... More

Went to the top of the Montparnasse tower @ night, beautiful view of Paris. U can also see quite a few monuments because of the 360 degree view. I am sure the view will be as stunning at sunset. They also have a lot of information on the different monuments that can be seen from the tower. It is also... More
