Although it’s very romantic to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, and you’ll probably have it on the top of your what-to-do-in-Paris list, it’s not the best place to get great panoramic views of the city. that honor goes to the highest building in the city center – Tour (tower) Montparnasse.
Montparnasse is a regular office block except it is 56 floors high, has 7,200 windows, covers a total of 13.28km² in floor space and has an observation deck and open roof terrace at the top.
Visitors whizz up to the 56th floor in an elevator which takes under 40 seconds to reach the top. There are 6 freight elevators and an additional 25 elevators for guests. The Panorama Floor is an indoor observation deck with the usual gift store, cafe and information about the surrounding views. From here you can get a 360° view of Paris including the Eiffel Tower, Sacre-Coeur and the Pompidou centre. here you can get a photo of the Eiffel Tower together with the city beneath it. The observation deck is 210 meters off the ground but you can go up even further by stairs to the roof terrace.
