    I am proud to brag that I went up the Eiffel Tower.... without using the elevator!!! WOW it was torture but worth every step up the stairs!!!!

    I think the closer I got to the top, the more people who were heading downstairs told me that I am almost there. The view is breathtaking and it felt surreal that I was standing there.

    There's a lot of security downstairs and a yummy cafe near the ticket booth (something to snack on while you wait in line). It's weird to see security walking around with a big gun and nets hanging up above just in case people try to jump off.

    Only downside is that you have to pay extra to go allll the way on top.

    It is an amazing tower. Once you are close to it, you can enjoy its architecture. It is good if you attend during the afternoon and at night.

    The view from the top is great and a must for first-time visitors, but the best way to truly experience its magic is approaching the Eiffel Tower from any small Parisian street.
    When you spot it (which is not a very hard thing to do), just walk to it. If it is during sunset, better. Just keep walking (no maps allowed!) and when you least expect it, the Eiffel Tower will appear in front of you in full glory.
    Do the cliché thing: grab a nutella and coco crepe and wait for the glittering show every hour at night, when it lights up.

    Yep, ya gotta visit. I was lucky to come 5 minutes before 7pm (I think), and right on the hour, the Eiffel Tower lights up and does a little light show. It sparkles like diamonds. I'm not sure of the time it does this anymore, but you'd be safe going on the hour after dark (try 8 pm?). I didn't go up the Tower, as there was a huge line. I recommend either doing a picnic with bread, wine, and cheese during sunset until it lights up-- free, cheap, and nothing like it.

    Enjoy walking up to the steps to the first and second levels. The gardens offer a nice place to stroll or have a small picnic. Great urban setting.

    When I think of Paris, I picture the Eiffel Tower in my head.
    I've been lucky enough to visit Paris twice and each time I've been drawn to visit this iconic landmark.

    The first time I went, I did the touristy things. Took the elevator up and enjoyed the view from the top. And what a view it is. Priceless.

    The second time I went, I packed a picnic lunch. We ate at the shadow of the tower and just had a great time people watching. After lunch, we headed to the tower. This time we took the stairs as far as it was going to take us. I believe it's only up to level 2 lol. We took the elevator the rest of the way up. But climbing those 700 steps was so much fun.

    At night they light up the tower and you can see it from afar.

    It's only steel, but it is Beautiful!!

    The Eiffel Tower is a must see in Paris. That is, you can´t miss it, but it´s worth the trip up the stairs or the elevators. Spectacular view from the top :)

    The Eiffel Tower is one of my favorite structures in the entire world. No matter how many times you've seen photos of this landmark in books or in movies, nothing will prepare you for the first time you see it in person. I was so overcome by it that tears started welling up in my eyes when I first set foot in Paris.

    I'm terrified of heights so I almost didn't go up in the tower. I was too freaked out to ride up to the tippy top in a very small and crowded elevator, so my hubby and I opted to buy a ticket and climb the stairs to the first level. Let me tell you, the first level is high enough. The view is stunning, even from the first level. Make sure you are in good shape too, that is a pretty steep and long climb. Once you get to the top of the first level, there's a little snack bar restaurant, some tables outside and a tiny little bathroom. With the price of admission you can stay up in the tower for as long as you desire, which is pretty cool if you want to take some photos that capture a certain time of day.

    Watch out for the pickpockets and scam artists that hover around the tower. Make sure you check Google before your trip to get the latest on the updated scams that are being run against tourists in Paris. They change frequently because scammers are pretty smart and crafty. If you know what to look for (the petition girls, the "excuse me do you speak English" folks and the gold ring / baby / free rose people) you will be prepared. Look away and walk with confidence.

    Of course it's as big a tourist trap as exists in the world but it's magnificent and the view from the top is amazing. The best part is the restaurant, Le Tour D'Argent. It still has it's one Michelin star. Haven't eaten there in 10 years, but the food and service and view! were excellent.

    One of the most awesome and monumental landmarks in Paris, France, every visitor must stop by and look in awe at it's awe-inspiring architecture! Make sure to make it all the way to the top and see the majestic view from a bird's eye view! At night, the lights turn on and the Eiffel Tower becomes EPIC!!!

    No trip to Paris is complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower. I once did a report on the Eiffel Tower in the 5th grade and I can't believe it took me so long to actually see it in person. I'm glad I had the opportunity because it's worth all the cliches in the world.

    And this being my first visit, I saw it once in the evening and once during the day. Of course I took a million photos of it. Of course I wanted to climb the stairs but the lines were long and I opted to go to a cafe instead. I was limited on time so I didn't want to waste it in line for something I could always come back again for. Twist my arm, I'll definitely return to Paris one day and climb the tower for the views. The tower is massive and definitely awe inspiring. If you ever visit, do pre-pay for a ride to the top. It sells out usually so plan in advance. Otherwise, lines will greet you when you arrive. It's one of the most iconic monuments in the world, and is worth a photo or two during your visit to Paris.

    Who could visit Paris and pass up the Eiffel Tower? It is everything that you thought it would be. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it's crowded year round. You should skip the elevator take the stairs up. To get to the top you have to pay for the lift, but it's totally worth it to see all of Paris beneath you. At midnight be sure to stand underneath the tower with someone special. I'll let you find out for yourself why :)

    OK, so it's almost a pastiche of itself but every visitor to Paris has to say they've ascended the Eiffel Tower at least once. The views over the city are marvellous, as you'd imagine and it's as much a monument to 19th Century engineering as it is one of the world's most recognisable man-made structures. Alas it's a total tourist trap, but hey, isn't that what you'd expect?

    The views from the Eiffel Tower are absolutely stunning but what I found the most captivating was the walk to the Eiffel Tower. We actually approached from the back, along the Seine and it was a really lovely angle.

    I couldn't believe how big it is! Somehow from pictures I imagined it to be much smaller. It was amazing to see what is most likely the world's most recognizable landmarks! Not free to get inside but free to enjoy from around the city!

    what to say? Everybody knows this famous sight. The city's landmark is of course a must see, even though the parisiens mostly don't like it. My Tip: get tickets in advance, if you don't want to wait in the lines for hours.

    If you can see only one thing in Paris, this is that one thing. The Eiffel Tower is defiantly France's most famous attraction, and it has the best views of the Parisian skyline. But, lines can get really long during the summertime, so I'd highly recommend that, if you don't want to be waiting for 2 hours to get to the elevators, you should buy tickets online at the tower's website.

    The very famous icon of France and it is very grand! You can find so many good views of the Eiffel Tower almost everywhere in Paris and you can find so many more when you're actually on it! Brilliant views of Paris!! A bit pricey as you might expect, but be sure to get there early to get your tickets if you wish to go to the very top!!

    Paris- la ville lumière - “the City of Light”. The Eiffel Tower is such a beautiful and iconic structure. To think that it was once an eyesore to many and the French protested against it. This is a must-see when in Paris, going up the tower, dining at the restaurant, seeing it from afar, and the best time is at 9pm and after when the lights are turned on and they have a light show every hour on the hour.

Description

Built in 1889 by Gustave Eiffel, the 'Iron Woman' is the symbol of not only the City of Lights, but of France. At 1,063 feet, she's long lost her claim to fame as tallest gal in the world — the Chrysler building took her spot way back in 1930 — but she's still quite a looker. The line to go up the stairs or to the elevator is always long but the view up there is worth the wait. To admire the tower ... read more
from afar, grab at a table outside at the Musee du Quai Branly.
