A view of Paris from La Tour Montparnasse’s rooftop


Vue sur Paris depuis Montparnasse, la nuit

When it comes to finding the best spot to view Paris from above, there’s just so much choice if you come to think of it. There’s the top of the Eiffel Tower, of course, the rooftop of l’Arc de Triomphe, the rooftop of Le Printemps and Les Galeries Lafayette near Opera, the main dome of Le Sacré-Coeur, Notre-Dame’s bell tower, Beaubourg, L’Institut du monde arabe, and, of course, the rooftop of La Tour Montparnasse.

Since I’ve already taken pictures from le Sacré-Coeur, l’Arc de Triomphe, and le Printemps,  I decided, this afternoon, to enjoy the lovely weather we had and to go to La Tour Montparnasse in order to capture Paris bathing in the sunlight of the evening, and in the last glow of dusk.

I think it is utterly pointless to say that the view was mind-blowing. From the pale blue sky of the late afternoon to the red and dark blue sky of the late evening, when the Eiffel Tower began to sparkle to welcome the night, I’ve enjoyed every single moment of this evening on La Tour Montparnasse’s rooftop.

If you ever come to Paris, and have some spare time in the evening, all I can tell you is that you must not miss this view. Of course, it’s a bit expensive (€15), but it’s worth every euro you put in it, I promise. It’s even made me love La Tour Montparnasse, which we love to hate in France, and in Paris more particularly. I hope my photos will finish convincing you, if it’s not already done.
