Wonderful 360 views, no waiting unlike the Eiffel. Worth the trip. Not much else to do in the area though.

For the easiest and best view of Paris, this is the one. You can view from inside the top floor or go to the very top, outside, for a 360 open view. Just perfect. We had a Salad and some wine for lunch at the small concession. I dropped my wine glass by accident and it was replaced with a full one, free of charge. This visit more than met my expectations.

France's tallest skyscraper. It's not nice! But! Europe's fastest lift to take you up. 40 seconds on 56 floors. Pay. the 59 downstairs is a nice view! The only reason why you should come here!

It's one of the best views you can get in Paris. The price is 13e for a full ticket and it's well worth it. You get a 360o panorama of Paris. Again, try to do this during / after sunset for an even more spectacular view. There is also a small restaurant up there, don't expect anything fancy, but you can get a decent meal for 15e+ and a beer at 200m above Paris comes at a decent 5e.

Briefly ...you are zoomed up 56 stories so quickly you do not feel it at all. The staff there do an excellent job in managing the tourist traffic. Once you reach there you have a view of all Paris. Care to go higher? There is one more level and that is up the stairs outside on the roof. Although windy, it is very safe. You just cannot get a better view anywhere.
