From this tower you have the best view! It was very quiet when I was there. I had to wait just a few minutes to go up. I had the 360° view almost alone for myself! Super!

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

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.
