5 must-sees from the top of Montparnasse Tower

At a height of 210 meters, the Montparnasse Tower is Paris' tallest building, and yet its spectacular panoramas over the city remain a surprising touristic secret. Here are five things not to miss from the tower's observation deck!

Eiffel Tower

Imagine spending an afternoon in queues just to get a view of Paris without its most iconic landmark. That's what you'll get at the Eiffel Tower, not at Montparnasse!

Montparnasse Cemetery

The tower boasts a gorgeous view of the Luxembourg Gardens, but better still is the breathtaking perspective directly over the famous cemetery where Samuel Beckett was buried.

Orly Airport

It'll take the clearest of days, but with a little luck you'll be able to see airplanes flying in and out of Paris' southernmost airport!

Sunset

To see the lights flicker on across the city, the charm of the Sacré-Cœur takes some beating. But for the view alone, the Montparnasse Tower offers the best in Paris!

Gare Montparnasse

If you do visit the tower after dark, turn your back on the usual landmarks for a minute to watch illuminated trains leave Gare Montparnasse toward Paris' southern suburbs.

What People Are Saying About Montparnasse Tower

Great price, lovely attractions, well worth booking.

Really easy to find meeting spot, tour guide led us to the Eiffel Tower, no problems at all. We were up to the 2nd floor in no time at all with our fast track tickets which we were glad to have! Stunning views even just from the 2nd floor of the tower, great experience. We did the river cruise the next day, the tickets allow you to use them up to a couple of days after which is handy if you're staying a few days. Basically see all the sights from down the river and back, can't complain. The only issue I'd say here is you can only listen to the tour guide underneath via headphones and not when on the upper deck (a shame because this is where you'd want to be to see all the sights and get some good photos). Would definitely recommend this tower and seine cruise to anyone visiting Paris in the future.

We were given one ticket short, five instead of six.

My husband was not able to join us for the tour. I am still waiting on a call back for the refund promised by Maria the tour guide.

Amazing sight to see and a bonus being able to go the top.

Once we established we were in the right place the leader was very informative but then allowed us to go off at the Eiffel Tower at our own pace. Seine cruise was easy to find and great for seeing the sights.

Great safe way to get to all the attractions in the city.

We got the 3 day ticket and would recommend this if you have the time. Sometimes the traffic is heavy in the city centre so it takes a while to get to attractions. This would be the same in a car or taxi though. We got the subway sometimes also but definitely felt safer on the tour bus.
