This photo by Don Smith looks west from atop Montparnasse Tower, the only significant skyscraper within central Paris, located just beside Gare Montparnasse.
In the distance are skyscrapers of La Défense, a pedestrian district full of mixed residential & commercial buildings, 31 hectares in size (about 77 American football fields).
Metro stations at La Défense: Esplanade de la Défense and La Défense (Grande Arche) both on Line 1, direction La Défense. RER stations: La Défense (Grande Arche) on RER A, direction St Germain-en-Laye, Poissy, Cergy (if coming from central Paris)
In the foreground: Eiffel Tower & its park: Champ de Mars. RER station: Champ de Mars on line RER C.
On the left, reflecting the sunset light, is Paris Metro Line 6 with its green roofed above ground stations.
