You get a really nice view of Paris, if its crowded you might have to fight for position by the protective glass to get a good view and get great pictures. Overall good experience.

If you want to have the best look of Eiffel Tower, this is the place to go. The view is spectacular, and it is cheap compared to other tourist things in Paris. There is also a restaurant if you want to invite your better half...More

This is a simple, uncomplicated site which provides excellent views of Paris. Really worth it. There are some good explanations of the history of Paris too. Well worth the price!

We paid €30 each to have the ride to the top with champagne. What a disappointment. The (reservation only) restaurant takes up the entirely westerly side of the building so you are not going to see the sun set from the enclosed observation deck and...More

The 360 degrees views from this tower are incredible. I went during the day which was still breathtaking. No line up. The tower itself and the adjoining shops could do with a little tarting up. I spent about 30 minutes here, although there is a...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

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.
