Absolutely was in awe of the structure. The view at the very top was amazing & a view I'll never forget. to see Paris at such a spectacular view was amazing. Also found it entertaining to see how far away Auckland was from the structure. The food on the lower level tasted amazing especially the chocolate cake.
On the ground I was a little freaked out by all of the people selling random gifts so stuck very close to my group. There were a lot of people but it was worth the wait most definitely.
Visiting the Eiffel tower at night is another must do for traveller's too.Recommended for:

The structure is breathtaking at day and night!! Especially at night when it lights up and sparkles lighting up the entire Paris! It also gives you a great view from within the tower!Recommended for:

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!Recommended for:

No words can describe Eiffel until you actually see it. It was built in 1889 for the World Fair. It's supposed to be torn down after 20 years. It's hard to believe Parisians thinks it's ugly. Today, it's the world's icon. We climb to the second level and the view was amazing!Recommended for:

What a way to see Paris..especially in the evening! The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking and when they have the light show....you will be amazed..
I've taken French language classes for years and one of my "bucket list" items was to visit the Eiffel Tower. It definitely didn't disappoint!! Beautiful views, FANTASTIC light show and romance as far as the eye can see!
Yes, there were lots of tourists and some of them were rude, but who cares?! YOU'RE IN PARIS, people♡Recommended for:

Step outside of your hotel or other accommodations and look up. Now slowly spin until you see the enormous metal needle piercing the sky. That! Go there. It's hard to even fathom making the trek all the way to Paris, and then skipping out on your visit to the Eiffel Tower. Nobody runs a whole marathon and then turns around inches before the finish line, just as nobody should ever visit Paris for the first time without making it up the Eiffel Tower. Go!Recommended for:

If you really want to go up the Eiffel Tower, buy your tickets online in advance. But if you have no tickets in hand, I urge you to try this magical alternative instead: Another nighttime adventure that is certain to take your breath away with a typical daytime Parisian activity thrown in.
First, purchase a dinner picnic at one of Paris’ many outdoor farmers’ markets (see market post to come). Get some French cheese, sliced ham, fresh baguette, olives, ripe fruit, etc. Then add to your edible treasures a bottle of chilled Champagne. Finally, take your picnic out to the Champs de Mars, but don’t be in a rush. In summer, it’s best to arrive after 10pm, maybe after your concert at St. Chapelle.

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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!!Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

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!!!
