Montparnasse Tower, Paris
(4.1/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
Paris' only skyscraper, Montparnasse Tower rises 210 m (689 ft) into the sky. While the majority of the tower contains offices, it’s also home to a mall where you'll find gift shops and restaurants. Take the elevator to the top floor and walk up the rest of the stairs to the panoramic terrace that contains a permanent exhibition with panels that present Paris and interactive markers, plus a cafe, a gift shop, and floor-to-ceiling windows with 360-degree views of the city. This tower is not as tall as the Eiffel Tower, so you’ll view things that aren’t as easily seen from such great heights. With our custom trip planner, Paris attractions like Montparnasse Tower can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • I wasn't able to climb the Tower Montparnasse because I had never found a clear day and with the fresh air, essential ingredients in order to be able to enjoy a breathtaking 360° in Paris. The 56th floor that can be reached in less than 40 seconds and after passing strict controls at the entrance, is well organized with interactive display boards located along the perimeter of the floor and allowing to locate and read a brief explanation of the various monuments, churches or important structures of Paris. On this floor that is closed completely from Windows, there is a small bar where you can enjoy sitting at a window, a breakfast or a cup of coffee/tea and a Souvenir negozzietto. With three flights of stairs rising to first floor, terrace 59 dsi that placed at the top of the tower is outdoors but there are placed along the perimeter of the same crystal that protect protectors, dele wind and possible rain. It is definitely a must to do for those who come to Paris.
