I went to the tower nearly sunset time and I was delighted . Although it’s a bit expensive it’s worth it. The crowds were lovely. Although the glass screens blocked the view with their uncleaned glass screens , there were some still good spots to...More

We hadn’t pre-booked tickets to the Eiffel Tour and we couldn’t bear the thought of queuing for hours. As a last resort we decided to visit the Observatory at the Montparnasse Tour. Although quite expensive at 18€, we thoroughly enjoyed out visit. A short wait...More

Stunning views of Paris-go at nightime or dusk to see the city in lights. Beautiful. Shops and a small restaurant up in the Panarama room.

It’s €18/person it’s like going to Louvre I think it’s quite pricy just to go up the 56th floor and you walk up the stairs to go on 59th floor to the top floor Good panoramic view of Paris

Stunning views of Paris in all directions. We loved this attraction as we could see all of Paris including the Eiffel Tower. A lovely extra is to get the ticket for two days - see Paris during the day and at night!

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

Yes, there is a terrace. It is protected from the elements by an overhead detached “roof”, and there are glass panels on the perimeter, but there are openings for photography spread along them on all sides.
