- Take a breather with Ice Skating at Montparnasse in Paris

January 30, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Travellers who tire of shopping and sightseeing in Paris could replenish their spirits by enjoying Ice Skating at Montparnasse.

It costs nothing to step out on to the ice and could be a great way for guests at hotels in Paris to relax and glide around for a while.

The huge open-air rink has been set up at the foot of the Montparnasse Tower and will be available to enjoy until March 5th 2011.

While there are sure to be a couple of expert skaters utilising the facility, people should not be worried they will be the only beginners, since the attraction is popular with individuals at different levels of expertise on the ice.

If tourists staying at nearby accommodation such as the Hotel Residence Villiers Paris do not fancy bringing their skates over to France they can hire the boots for 5 (£4.30).

Once visitors have finished skating, they could go up the Montparnasse Tower and enjoy a stunning view of the city, which will no doubt look magnificent on a clear day.

It is currently the tallest skyscraper in France at 210 metres.

The ice rink is open from 12:00 to 20:00 local time on weekdays and 09:00 until 20:00 at weekends.

If people still need to book accommodation for their trip to the city, they could use to find a quality location such as Timhotel Gaite Montparnasse.
