    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 :)

    I was fortunate enough to spend a few days in Paris with my water polo team. The Eiffel Tower was the most memorable of all the sites we visited. It was a very long walk up the stairs but when you get to the top its all worth it. The view is incredible.. I definitely suggest taking the time to go up if youre in the area!

    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.

    One hour by TGV train from Tours. Choose your train : TGV from Tours 1H00, or from Saint-Pierre des Cors : 55mn. Avis rent a car in both stations.

    Needs no introduction! 5 min from our studio.

    Breath-taking at sunset. Sparkles every hour (for 8 min on the hour). Best places for photos include: Trocadéro platform and the surrounding gardens, Pont de l'Alma (especially with fireworks on Bastille Day) and along the north bank of the river Seine. Champs de Mars is also an excellent picnic spot.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    If an ironcast structure can be magnificent, L'Eiffel fits the bill. I thoroughly enjoyed this stop in my Paris itinerary - we climbed it at dusk, so we could enjoy the view in daylight, twilight, and nighttime. If you're fit, definitely opt for the climb instead of elevator - you'll bypass the long lines at the ground floor. Unfortunately, you can only go to the second level and then you have to take the "neck" lift to the summit - at which point you cannot avoid the crowds. The views are breathtaking, and you can linger up in there in the Parisian sky as long as you want. We were up there when the light display came on - the blue starlights began twinkling and everyone on the ground applauded and cheered. We were way up at the top of the tower, and we could hear them - it was such an incredible experience. And when we came down, we saw what they saw: it's one of those internationally-known landmarks that you can't help but stare at; one of those moments when you say "Oh my God, I'm really in Paris!"
    The tower climb may be overrun by tourists, but the field that spreads out before it is filled with Parisians in love with life - and each other. Blankets, picnic baskets, and plenty of bottles of wine litter the grass in good weather, and every square inch of space is occupied by kissing lovers, chattering and laughing locals, and awestruck visitors. We squeezed in amongst them and couldn't take our eyes away from the towering structure glittering blue and gold against the warm summer nighttime sky.

    No doubt, one of the most romantic places in the entire world! It is worth going to the top, at least once. When I was there, a couple got engaged. So romantic! The view of the city is quite inspiring from the top. Don't skip the view from 1st and 2nd stops.

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.
