Good place to base your visit with easy access to both airports, trains, abd a large subway station, shopping , restaurants and hotels. And the tall Tour de Montparnasse is easily seen from most points in Paris.

They say it is better to see the Eiffel Tower from Montparnasse than the other way around. On arrival you are shown onto your lift and are whisked to the 56th floor in a mater of 38 seconds. It is hard to believe that you...More

Went here in a group. And this wasn't the first time I come to Paris. So basically you get inside and queueing for the lift. There's a strict security and you have to take out all your belongings into screening especially your electronics. The lift...More

The views are nice but to me it's not worth the time and money. To me going up the Eiffel tower or visiting Montmartre offers equally good views with a more genuine Paris experience.

We were only in Paris for a couple of days and decided not to spend a lot of money and wait in lines to go up the Eiffel Tower. Instead I read that Montparnasse had fantastic views at a fraction of the cost. So we...More

I prefer to not wait in unbelievable long lines. We went to Montparnasse and were rewarded with short lines, fantastic views of Paris, and good food. We did not opt to go up higher and stayed at the inside viewing area. Open the map you...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

historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
