Tour Maine-Montparnasse (Maine-Montparnasse Tower), also commonly named Tour Montparnasse. The building is just a horrible wreck of a structure. Built in the early 1970s, it sticks out of the Paris skyline like the proverbial sore thumb. BUT it really have the best view of Paris and the surrounding communities even without the punchline.
So if you wish to see an elegant or romantic tower, then go toEiffel Tower, but if you want to wait for few minutes to buy a ticket and see Paris from up, then go directly to the Maine-Montparnasse Tower.
In the end my “Paris Je T’Aime” was said from up here and not from Eiffel tower, I left that one for another romantic visit with my boyfriend 🙂
