Paris is a city renowned for its unique beauty. From the splendor of the Champs Élysées, to the views along the Seine from Ponte Neuf, there are few more cities evocative of historic charm in Europe. One notable aspect of Paris is the lack of tall buildings in the interior of the city. This is due to zoning restrictions that limit the building of more than seven stories. This means that there are relatively few viewpoints to enjoy the splendor of the whole city.
Of course, the view from the Eiffel Tower is the most famous, and the perspective of the city from Sacre Coeur at Montmartre may be impressive in other ways. However, arguably the best view of all may be from one of the most widely reviled of all the buildings in Paris.
Choose a Hotel near Montparnasse Tower
A modern building completed in 1973, Montparnasse Tower was initially disliked by Parisians, as its simple black design was seen as out of place among the rest of the city’s architecture. Yet for any visitor to the city, the views from the building’s top terrace and 58th-floor restaurant are perhaps the most impressive of all. See the French capital and decide for yourself which view is superior - just use Expedia’s handy search tool to find the perfect hotel near any of the landmarks that offer panoramic views.
