Here's the deal....the views from the top of the tower are beautiful but this is not in the center of the city. If you're going to take the time to get here, by Metro or by taxi, then you might as well go to the restaurant at the top for a drink. We didn't even know it existed until we... More

As many say, better view than from eifel tower, cheaper and no endless queues, hawkers and pickpockets! €15 to get to top where there are indoor and outdoor viewing platforms and some information boards and screens on both that aren't really anything special. Crowded shop with a pinch point where they try to flog you your picture taken on way... More

No need to book online or stand in long queues of Eiffel Tower. It took us 10 mins to buy our tickets and we were on our way to the viewing deck. There are 2 viewing floors, you are taken to the first by list and for the second you have to take the stairs. View of Eiffel Tower and... More

Easy and well worth it for the views. Getting out of montparnase metro is a bit tricky, but once you arrive it's straight up the lift and up to the viewing gallery.

If you've got a spare hour or so, you could do worse than Go up the Montparnasse tower (well, you could spend it queuing to get up the Eiffel Tower). Views from the top are magnificent, and plenty of space to take photos - including of the Eiffel Tower itself!

I went yesterday with my father, but philippines we are not welcome there. the man of the desk was really rude and impolite. He told me that I can't be here if I don't speak frech because that's the oficial language and he said people like me are not welcome. I felt myself insulted. The viwes are amazing

Not because of the view itself but due to the fact, that being on top of the Tour Montparnasse means that you do not see the building itself. The Parisians really hate it, as apparently has spoiled the Paris panorama. Anyway, it is just another skyscraper which happens to be really positioned well. There are no high buildings around so...

Okay so its not the Eiffel Tower but the views are just as spectacular and there are no queues. Paid for this with Tesco vouchers which made it even more of a bargain. The immediate area around the tower isn't the best (60s brutalist architecture) but the staff were pleasant and the facilities good. Food is available at the top... More

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