If you’re going to Paris by car, make sure you book your parking near the Tour Montparnasse in advance, so you don’t have to waste any time looking for a space. Plus, with us you will get to avoid Paris’ 2 hours parking limit, which we all know, is just not enough time for anyone to spend in Paris! Park near the Tour Montparnasse easier than ever before.
The Tour Montparnasse itself isn’t particularly historic or even that beautiful, but the view you can get from the 56th floor puts it as a must do to any trip to Paris. It’s located in the 15th arrondissement, just opposite the Montparnasse Rive Gauche Shopping Centre.
In just 38 seconds, the fastest lift in Europe will take you to the 56th floor. You want to go even higher? Then take the stairs to the Panoramic Terrace on the 59th floor. Nowhere else in Paris can offer you a better view of the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré-Cœur, the Louvre, the Pantheon, the Arc de Triomphe and practically everything else that you can see in Paris.
The Tour Montparnasse stands at a proud 210 metres, making it the tallest sky scraper in the city but it divides opinions amongst Parisians, to some its known as the “Big Sinister Monster” - so it’s hardly surprising that this high rise office building is listed as one of the ugliest in the French capital. But beauty, of course, is in the eye of the beholder, and the breathtaking 360° views of Paris is pretty spectacular too.
Since you’re going to the area, you should be sure to check out what else is in Montparnasse. It used to be a rather poor neighbourhood, but by 1900 many artists lived there: from Picasso to Sartre. More cafés, cabarets and theatres opened, with many of them still open today. How about a visit to the ‘Closerie des Lilas', where Ernest Hemmingway wrote his book ‘Fiesta’ on its terrace?
