If you come to Paris and would like to visit a place with a magnificent view, everyone would tell you to visit the Eiffel tower. This landmark of Paris from the end of the 19th century is more than 300 meters high and gives you a stunning view over Paris.
But, there is another landmark, not at all that well-known, but which can be just as great to visit as the Eiffel tower in Paris. This building is 220 meters high and it is known as the Montparnasse Tower. This skyscraper is the one and only in Paris, and it was the largest in all of France until the construction of Tour First in a suburb of Paris. Still, the Montparnasse Tower is a building with 56 floors and the fastest elevator uses only 36 seconds to get from the bottom to the top. From the top of the building, you can enjoy a different panorama view of Paris than from the Eiffel Tower, and it is a great thing when the Eiffel Tower is included in the view, and you not only see everything from the top of it.
The Montparnasse Tower was finished in 1972 and was opened in 1973 and it is still standing as a solid landmark, still not that well-known in Paris. Pay a visit to it, and you will visit an attraction most tourists miss out on!
