Ciel de Paris, Tour Montparnasse, Paris, France.
No, my favourite viewpoint in Paris is not from the top of the Eiffel Tower, nor Arc de Triomphe, nor even from the foot of Sacre Coeur (although that does come in a close second), but it is in fact from the top of Tour Montparnasse. It is not an attractive building itself – in fact 2 years after it was completed the construction of skyscrapers in Paris was banned! However, once you make your way to the 56th floor of this building, rather than fork out 13 Euros for the privilege of standing on their panoramic floor, why not head opposite to Ciel de Paris and instead spend your money on a tasting flight of champagne while enjoying the view. With floor to ceiling glass, directly in front of the Eiffel Tower, and a champagne in hand while the sun sets, there is nothing quite like it.
