I love a good sunset. There’s nothing more magnificent than watching a landscape transform from day to night and on my recent trip to Paris, I found the perfect spot to enjoy the iconic vistas of the City of Light.
The Montparnasse Tower, a modern skyscraper overlooking the Eiffel Tower, boasts arguably the best panoramic view of the city. One option is to pay 14 euro to access its visitor’s centre and Panoramic Floor, where you can enjoy a 360 degree view of the French capital and all its monuments. On a clear day you can see up to 40km away! The observation deck is the highlight and perfect for taking photos.
The other option is to opt for a drink or a meal at Ciel de Paris, located on the 56th floor (which I went for), especially if you want to enjoy the view with a glass of bubbly. We were lucky to get a spot at the bar as we hadn’t booked, but if you want to make an evening of it, make sure to reserve a table.
We arrived at just the right time – just before sunset – so we got to enjoy the while spectacle. As darkness fell, the city came alive with twinkling lights and the iconic Eiffel Tower became a beacon of golden light. A magical moment.
