This is the best view you can have on ALL sites of Paris. We've waited for sunset to go up and it was fantastic to see the city from above st night and the Eiffel Tower in it.

Good view of the whole city with no activities to enjoy that high. After trying lookout amsterdam this was an average experience.

We decided to check the view from this building since it is the only tall structure in the neighborhood. When we ascended the Eiffel Tower, it had been a rainy day, so we wanted to get another view of Paris on this sunny day. There`s...More

This is a great place to go to have views of Paris that don't include this tower! The observation deck is great but quite expensive for what it is - it could do with a makeover as the decor is looking tired. We only went...More

We went to watch the sunset and were not disappointed. We had the Paris city pass and so we did not need to pay the 10€ each to ride to the top. I might have felt differently if I had to pay a separate admission....More

You can see the city from Eiffel tower, but to see Eiffel tower from one of the tallest buildings of the city is a view in itself. Got the tickets pre-booked and we arrived destination before time, no hassle. The view at night is one...More

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

I bought mine in the lobby of the tower and went straight up. There was a short queue but I assume there could be a longer wait at the height of the tourist season.

I don't expect you should have a problem. The gaps and slots in the glass can accomodate about a hundred people at a time, so I think towards the sunset will be good for 20 or 50 people at a time too. Unless you get all... More
