Montparnasse

Montaparnasse Tower Observation. This observation center is located on the roof of a 210 meter tall building. Built over 58 floors and opened in 1973, this was the tallest skyscraper in France when it was built. The view from top covers an area with radius of 40 kilometers. This observatory tower attracts over a million visitors a year.
Tip # 9 : Skip climbing the Eiffel Tower – I know this is going to get me dirty looks and rolling eyeballs. But let me explain. If you want to climb the Eiffel Tower for the views, go to Montparnesse tower instead. There are no queues. There is an elevator that takes you to the top. It costs less. But the biggest reason is that the views are better. The view FROM the Eiffel Tower doesn’t have the Eiffel Tower in it. This does J. The best way to enjoy the Eiffel Tower is to get to a vantage point at sunset when there is a dazzling display of lights for 5 minutes and then the tower stays lit. We had the most romantic moment taking in the lights from the Pont de l’Alma (incidentally also the spot where Princess Diana crashed to her death).
We then headed to my most favourite part of the trip – The Montparnasse Tower.
