On Top of Paris

Not long ago, I visited the Tour Montparnasse located in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. The building itself isn’t that special but the views of Paris from the 56th floor are pretty incredible. As most old Parisian buildings are usually about 6 storeys high, you can imagine how clearly all of Paris can be viewed from the 56th floor. If you continue to walk up 3 more storeys via the stairs to the 59th floor, there is a panoramic viewing deck. I really enjoyed the views from the top of the Montparnasse Tower because you could also see the Eiffel Tower. There were touch screens all around so you could learn about all the important places in the city. Besides the Eiffel Tower, you can see other places like Sacré Coeur, Eglise Saint-Sulpice, Arc de Triomphe, Montparnasse Cemetery & Les Invalides to name a few. On the 59th floor there is also the Bubble Sky Bar for all your Champagne needs. Visiting the Tour Montparnasse would be amazing at night also when the City of Light comes to life and the Iron Lady sparkles.
