The view from the tour is spectacular, but for knowing the most interesting sites you have to take a map or google earth ... Very good cockztails, also without alcohol. We enjoyed a wonderful "foie gras", really excellent.

Montparnasse was giving excellent panoramic view for Paris to start explore the city. 360 degree view of Paris will give you perfect way to explore Paris from 56th and 59th floor. Then when you reach ground floor you will wisely decide where to go.

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the

goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
