Tour Montparnasse

Before our friends The Loggers left Paris for good (this time around…) they treated us to a jaunt up the Tour Montparnasse.  Now, I had successfully avoided going up this monstrosity until that fateful night simply because I had already been up the Eiffel Tower and The Arc de Triomphe numerous times, but I have to say it was pretty cool.  If you’ve got a thing for looking over cities and have already visited the Tour Eiffel and the Arc de Triomphe, the Tour Montparnasse should be your next stop.  It’s basically the second Eiffel Tower of the city.

Did you know that there are regulations within Paris city limits about how tall a building can be?  Well, the Tour Montparnasse is one of the only ones that has been completed and stands above these regulations, giving it one of the most interesting views over the Eiffel Tower that you can get.  That being said, my favorite way to view the city from up high is still from the Arc de Triomphe, but the Tour Montparnasse wasn’t too shabby!
