Eiffel Tower

5 Avenue Anatole France, Paris

4.5

The Eiffel Tower came a long way to become what it is today. Once, it wasn't least liked by the Parisians. Today, it's inseparable part of the French capital city.

The structure soars into the sky, offering marvelous views from its three levels. The tower is also a setting for romantic moments that bound endless couples for eternity. Take a staircase to reach first two levels or an elevator to access either of three. Once there, enjoy views of Paris and entertain yourself with the interactive content displaying the history of the structure. You can also take a drink or dine in the Eiffel Tower's restaurants or a bar.

The tower is an ideal starting point for the new arrivals. Familiarize yourself with the city's outline for better orientating. Additionally, you can take a bus tour or the Seine River cruise near the Eiffel Tower. The imposing structure is breathtaking when looked up close. It's also a spectacular sight during the evening when a light show begins around any full hour.

    The only reason why i gave this 5 stars is because despite the crowd and the price of going up the Tower, its one of the most beautiful attraction in Paris. We went for a dinner and so we basically got the skip the line treatment, I would recommend this if you are only planning on going up once and never again. And if you want the best picture, check your weather app and go during golden hour. It is some of the best pictures you will have. if you want to enjoy the tower from the outside, it is best to go early in the morning. You can even cross the bridge to the side and enjoy more views

    This was a fantastic place there was Many lighting's there were shows 0 There were nearby restaurants Nearby it was surrounded by parks People are very good and are ready to Help , it was full of tourists.I found it reasonably priced to visit the second floor considering the Eiffel tower is one of the most visited attractions in the world. The wait time for the tickets is around an hour (that was afternoon in August) but again it is the Eiffel tower. If you're wondering if you should visit Paris to see the Eiffel tower, it really is as breathtaking as you'd imagine. The views of the city from the first and second floor are gorgeous. The lovely cool breeze once you get to the floors is very welcome after the trek up the stairs. Coffee shop, toilets, restaurant and gift shops on both floors. Just fall onto one of the beanbags provided and enjoy the view. There is a lift back down but there was a huge queue so we just took the stairs. IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE

    Do the stairs if you are able and get the additional ticket to the top (combo.) The stairs line moves much quicker. Regardless, be patient and plan for long lineups. Pack water. Getting tickets online ahead of time will fast track your wait. Enjoy the view. It's amazing up there!

    Always the destination of our dreams. When we (me along with my friends) reached here it was raining heavily and we got completely drenched. Now within eyesight was a metal structure which seemed familiar. It took us a while to realize that we were standing in front of THE EIFFEL TOWER! We were wondering if this is the structure we saw in celluloid all these days since childhood. You have to walk half a mile from the metro station to reach the Eiffel, and that walk was one of the most exciting walks of my life, just to see that the Eiffel beholds itself a little more as you get closer to it. The gigantic structure was truly appalling. With dusk being round the corner, the City of Lightโ€™ was paying a deLIGHTful tribute to its tower of dreams. And slowly the tower lit up in a golden hue. It was only then that we realize the grandeur of the Wonder. And if that was not enough, we were next treated to the spectacle of a lifetime โ€“ the glittering lights. It seemed like a golden palace encrusted with diamonds sparkling right in front of us. This magnificent glittering phenomenon occurs every hour till midnight post sunset and its worth watching every second of it, Iโ€™ve seen people fall in love with each other beholding the Eiffel together, such is the charm.

    Eiffel Tower. Ah the most touristy spot in the world. Signage was adequate. Good service by all the staff working there. Lines are long though so get ready to wait. The view from the top is worth it though. Amazing experience. Also the youth discount was very beneficial.

    Magical place. I waited for more than an hour in the line just to get to the ticket counter and then half an hour more to get to the lift. It was worth every penny. When I get to the top, I felt like I'm in the top of the world. The view from there is mind blowing. It's winter so a bit cold. But my God, if you are a thrill seeker or adventurous it's a must. It's one of the best man made landmarks in the world and it rightly is. Never forget it......

    While a complete tourist trap, my family and I really enjoyed it! The glass elevators allow you to see Paris while gliding up. Every level offers great views and things to do or buy. For those who are capable, walking up is cheaper and not awful. (You can only walk up to the second level and then everyone has to take the elevator to get to the very top. ) Get there early to avoid crazy lines but lines do move quickly. It is SUPER windy at the very top so, ladies, wear pants or shorts under your skirt.
