These catacombs are very popular with tourists, so book in advance and end up in the shorter queue. Only 200 people are allowed inside at any given time, so people end up queuing for hours. We arrived an hour before they opened, on a weekday...More

''Thus passes everything on earth - spirit, beauty, talent, grace''. Very long and slow waiting queue. Long walking distance. Warm clothes would be useful. Toilets are located upstairs by the exit at the very end.

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,

from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
