Montparnasse Tower

The Montparnasse Tower is not so pretty to look at, but it is tall, so consider it a convenient viewing platform. For free, you can go up to a bar near the top. But why go nearly to the top? It’s better to pay a little cash and get some of the best views of the city.

Visitor Information

The Montparnasse Tower is 210 meters (688 feet) high with 59 floors. Although not quite as tall as the Eiffel Tower or Tour First at La Defense, its central location and viewing station offer excellent 360-degree views of the city. It’s also well suited to cityscape photography.
