We climbed to the top of Pantheon, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower and Sacre-Coeur, but this was by FAR the best views of Paris! We went at night and had fantastic views of the Eiffel Tower during the light show. It was also very nice...More

Great view of the entire city. Especially great at sunset. Gets a little crowded so get there early.

Certainly the Eiffel Tower and pretty much anything around Paris. 2 Paris friends friends took us there to show off the city. One had used a somewhat derogatory term to describe what some Parisians thought of how the structure was shaped ! but nonetheless once...More

Although the observatory/platform is only at 75% of the height of the Eiffel Tower, we actually liked the Montparnasse Tower better. Much much faster to buy tickets, much much faster to get to the top, much less tourists/crowd, same good view at daytime and better...More

I think it is expensive tour considering what it provides. Only good thing is that its got a nice restaurant where you can sit, have a drink and enjoy views of Eiffel tower and rest of city. If you have seen night views from Eiffel...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
