Montparnasse Tower Roof Terrace Ticket: 360 degrees of Paris
- Skip the line
- Duration: 1 hour
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!
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.
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!
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.
Between April 1st to September 31st, the tower is open daily from the hours of 9:30AM to 11:30PM. The rest of the year it is open 9:30AM to 10:30PM from Sunday to Thursday, and stays open until 11:00PM on Saturdays and the eves of major holidays. Book your tour tickets online to avoid queues!
You'll see more on a clear day so check the weather forecast first. Consider having dinner at the Ciel de Paris restaurant on the 56th floor, or go on a Friday night in summer to enjoy live music from 7:00PM on the roof terrace bar!
The closest Metro station is Montparnasse-Bienvenüe, on lines 4, 6, 12, and 13.

The view from Montparnasse Tower is beautiful. I highly recommend visiting to watch the sun set over Paris. Once it's dark enough outside, the Eiffel tower lights up and every hour on the hour it puts on a little light show for a few minutes. Got some great pictures/videos here!
Very easy to find on the metro The views were spectacular especially as we went at sunset Great viewing from inside on the 56th floor & again outside on the 59th floor Great photo opportunities Great for a relax & refreshments All staff very helpful & pleasant
Beautiful view. But a bit too expensive even with Get Your Guide. Went up at Sky Garden-London for free..and the view was similar.
Amazing view, whether from the terrace or the lounge on the 59th floor. A must if you’re visiting Paris.
Great views. Getting tickets first really helped. No waiting. Really a lovely time
