Our tour guide in Paris told us the best trick: instead of going up the Eiffel Tower and spending a lot of money doing that to get a decent view of Paris, plus the ugly tower that is the Montparnasse train station, go instead to the Montparnasse train station and up the 56 floors of the Montparnasse tower to get...

At night the restaurant/bar at the top of the tower (Le ciel de Paris) offers an enchanting view of Paris. Drinks are expensive but about what you would expect when you are paying for the view.

Rather than waste your money on the E.T - scale this tower and get magnificent photos with the E.T in it! We went at night and it was just beautiful, not many people at all.

We have been on Tour Montparnasse on 2nd January 2015. Our actual plan was to climb up the Eiffel Tower. But since we failed to order tickets online and even if we hadn't, there would have been a queue after the 2nd floor, we were looking for an alternative. We then headed to Tour Montparnasse and were quite disappointed as... More

Went here in december. I've never been up the eiffel tower, because of obvious reasons of how many tourists go up there. Me and my partner went up tour montparnasse and the view was amazing. Was a little put off by the staff when you go up to the 59th floor, we didn't want our photo taken because we were... More

The best view of Paris, stunning 360º view that have a magical touch during sunset. Somedays and at some hours you can find a long queue to enter here, but deserve every minutes of waiting when you get to the top.

So very many people wait on line to go up the Eiffel Tower to take photos of Paris day or night. Don't do it! What you want is a photo with the Eiffel Tower in it. The place to get that photo is Tour Montparnasse. The lines are MUCH shorter and the view is much better. Go to the Eiffel... More

Would highly recommend the Montparnasse tower and observation decks for a wonderful view of Paris. Costs a little to go up but it was worth it for the views of the Eiffel Tower and surrounding city.

Touristic location with high price but worth it experience. We were during December holidays, in windy weather, so can not really enjoy the upper level. However, it was very nice to enjoy the views and make some pictures. Also it was a nice chance to warm up.
