All reviews eiffel tower open deck observation deck degree view souvenir shop great views of paris viewing area great neighborhood top floor train station lift creperies skyscrapers height stairs telescope lines
We stayed here during this visit and nevertheless the place is lively of course with lots of restaurants and bars and things to do I found this area a bit remote from the more attractive areas: Saint Germain or Marais. Needless to say we made...More
Montparnasse is the area we always try to stay when we visit Paris. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist hot spots and this is exact what we like. We always stay at the Marriott Rive Gauche. The Montparnasse Cemetery is...More
The price at 18E is off putting but we went and we were very glad we did. We looked up the sunset time for Paris that night and set off in plenty of time to see it . The lift upto the 56th floor takes...More
Travelling by high speet d lift (56 floors in 36 seconds) you reach the viewing area. As you walk round you get great panoramic views of Paris and beyond. Less crowded than the Eifel Tower and a lot cheaper. The viewing floor has a snack...More
Montparnasse is a lively area of Paris, there are restaurants to suit every pocket from La Coupole and La Dome to the many creperies which offer great value for money. Lots of theatres and cinemas in this area too.
Of course, you can't miss Tour...More
This gives you one of the best views of Paris including all the major landmarks. We went there after sunset and could see the amazing city lights. There were even some telescopes at the top and we could see Saturn, Mars and even the international...More
This was where it was at in the early 20th Century, especially the 1920s. Artists and cool people hung out here in the many cafes. Some lived in fantastic lofts that are now fancy apartments. The cafes are still here, some with very good food....More
We visited the tower and view at the end of 4 days in Paris.
Access at the bottom of the tower could be more clearly sign posted, some perseverance needed.
Very efficient lift to 56th floor followed by 2 flights of steps to outdoor viewing...More
Montparnasse is an absolute gem of a location in Paris. We have always stayed at the big five star properties closer to the Arc and Champs, but this was just wonderful. Very quaint neighborhood full of restaurants, bars and just everything you would need. Great...More
We decided to go around sunset which was the best decision. It's a nice place to relax and enjoy the views of the city. We stayed on the open deck the whole time which was pretty packed so plan wisely.
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.

You can do both on same day, as they are conplety different. Trocadero you can have a more detailed view due to the proximity. Montparnasse it's far but the view it's unique 360° over Paris. In Montparnasse the view of the... More

Dining near Trocadero & Montparnasse, solo traveler (8 Replies)
Bonjour! Where are good places to eat near Trocadero and Gare Montparnasse? I'm an English only speaker, solo traveler, who's a bit shy. I'm willing to spend into "mid-tier" prices, if the experience is worth it, but the lower the better! Any recommendations for rooftop cafes and restaurants are welcome too! Food/drinks I like: chicken!, pizza, croissants, salmon and similar fish, lasagna, burgers (yes I'm American unfortunately haha), wraps, steak, bacon & breakfast sausage, french...More

You can actually eat in the Trocadero and Montparnasse Tower also has a restaurant up near the top of it. I like the Trocadero one looking over towards the Eiffel Tower.
Staying at Le Meridien Montparnasse...need help! (5 Replies)
Just found out I'm going to Paris with my hubby, he is going for work and I am going to play. I have never been and am very excited. Can anyone tell me what's close to our Hotel? We are staying there two nights and going to another hotel for the rest of the week (not sure the name or location yet). I'll probably be on my own for a few days since the hubby will be in meetings. I was thinking of taking an English speaking bus tour, any suggestions? Thanks Debdawn

Bunches of miscellaneous pre-trip questions: 1) I still have french francs!! Where can I exchange still (can I?) I know I can't exchange coins, but the bills?

How long does dry cleaning take? I am staying in an...More

There was only one bank in Paris that takes the FF Bills at least when I tried to exchange them last. The bank I went into told me where it was. A very nice French gentleman changed them for me n the spot as he over heard my question. He said he was going there so no problem! He was so very nice and he refused my offer to pay him or have a coffee! I woukld ask when you go into a bank or someone may know the address of the bank that still does it. Used CD and DVD can be found in the 5 Er !...More
