Trip Report Tour Montparnasse: possible plan B if you can't cope with the Eiffel Tower

Jump to last reply

I had not been to the top of the Tour Montparnasse for at least 10 years, but yesterday I decided that it was time for a return trip. The weather was not great, but the air was clear and not at all hazy, so that was good enough for me. At 4pm Saturday, waiting time to buy the ticket was 5 minutes and waiting time for the elevator was 3 minutes. The elevator takes 38 seconds. I saw on the sign that at this time of year the tower is open until 11:30pm with the last tickets sold at 11pm (one hour earlier in the winter).

Anyway, I enjoyed my brief visit, and this is the sort of thing that certainly allows people to get a glimpse of places they won't have time to visit -- or else decide where they want to go ("hey, that looks cool!") when they see it from the top of the tower. And of course, just like on the Eiffel Tower, the view from above really impresses upon you how compact Paris is and all of the places that you can walk to.

So here are the photos I took up there on this sunless afternoon: http://tinyurl.com/tourtop
