This is a very tall tower, so by going on the observation floor via a very fast lift, you have 360 degree views of Paris which are fabulous. You can go one better and climb the stairs to the roof for an even more awesome sight. My suggestion is visit towards sunset time and just watch the lights of the... More

Although eiffel is so much taller in height, more famous n well known, this tower offers better panoramic view in comparison! Better place to make pictures and videos obviously because the glasses are see through without anything blocking the view. There are also chairs for visitors to seat longer and enjoy the sunset, the lights, the wind and importantly the... More

Going up to the top of Montparnasse Tower (floor 59) starts with a ticket of 15 EUR, paid at the floor level, then going up with the elevator, fastest in Europe. Best view of Paris from up here.

The fastest lift gets you to the top, don't go if it is cloudy. The views are incredible and the historical information wonderful, took us nearly 2 hours to read and view everything. Be aware that security is very tight at the moment, you will be searched. The café is not the best and is expensive, but ok for some... More

This is a great experience with a lift that climbs 58 floors in 38 sec when you get to the top you can have a coffee and take in the view, only one thing watch the weather the cloud can spoil the view.

The views from the top keep the tower from being more than a massive blight on the Paris skyline! You can really get a feel for the layout of the city.

Waste of time. We expected a nice place to eat - there was a very overpriced and dirty cafe space. Yes you get a good view if the weather allows but that's it. Boring office block which is uglier on the inside than the outside. Would not recommend to anyone - there are other great access to birds eye views... More

Everyone goes to the top of the Eiffel Tower when visiting Paris, right? There's nothing quite like a birds-eye view of the iconic city from the iconic tower. Except.... a birds-eye view that INCLUDES the Eiffel Tower! Tour Montparnasse costs 15 euro for the fastest elevator ride I've ever been on to the top of the building. Upon arrival, your... More

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.
