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.

    Iconic, magical probably the most visited attraction in the world. Views are breathtaking and memorable. At sunset is surreal to watch Paris the most beautiful city in the world. Almost like a movie scene. They paid homage to Gustav Eiffel and Bell by placing their life size figures in the room Mr. Eiffel was using during the construction. Since he thought the tower will be only temporary if he only knew he created a masterpiece for people all around the Globe to visit as probably the most romantic destination. Really remarkable. On a third floor they sell champagne in a glass. It’s so nice to drink a glass of champagne while enjoying incredible views. Romantic and unforgettable like Eiffel Tower and Paris itself.🍾🥂

    Wonderful views, of course! It's nice that you can choose between stairs and elevators, but I would not recommend the stairs unless you are in very good shape. There are places within the tower to buy macrons and champagne for fairly reasonable prices if you don't want to sit down at the restaurant. Get there early in the morning limited wait times! (Although sunset and evening times will give lovely views, which would be worth the wait for some)

    It's definitely an experience, though it's a shame with the works going on at the minute. Security is good, on the ground floor it's very industrial looking compared to the last time we went. Not sure if they are keeping permanent surrounding wall up or not. It used to be all open but I can understand the need to be vigilant at the minute. Steps are hard work if you are not active. I found it easier second time round (2 years after last visit). Views astounding, really nice. Toilets on each floor. Gift shops, expensive drinks @5 euros for a bottle of pop, so if you can carry the weight bring your own bottles. Sure I could feel top floor moving, but stands to reason given how narrow it is. Lifts to go up from second to top floor are jam packed tight. We walked up and down, there was quite a nice breeze on the way down which was well needed on a hot day!

    Just lovely, no words could explain, just come here, and feel the awe when you see this tower standing above you. The entry will take a long line as the security check your belongings. You can choose whether you wanna climb the stairs, or use the elevator. Just take the stairs as long as your body permit, you will really enjoy this tower step by step, and safe a bit money. It's up to you if you wanna climb to the second platform, but for me, the first platform is high enough to enjoy Paris from above. Once you are there, you can spend hours just enjoy Paris from above. This tower is worth to visit for the second, third, or even fourth times. But honestly, just standing below it is make yourself feel so small.

    I got to see iconic symbol in France. The best tourist attraction. It was so really amazing seeing the Eiffel Tower that I only imagine seeing in pictures. The best time to go is at night it lights up the sky. Seeing the Eiffel Tower light up was the best thing ever. I got on the elevator all the way to the top. The view was such an awesome experience. It's worth going to see if you ever get a chance. I hope one day I can go back and see it again soon.

    What more can you say about the Eiffel Tower that hasn't already been said, it's one of the most iconic symbols of France and probably the most popular tourist attraction in Paris. I've visited the Eiffel Tower in both winter and spring and I'd have to say that I prefer the spring time because it's much more picturesque with all the trees and plants in the surrounding parkland in full bloom. Visiting at night also provides another unique aspect with the Tower all lit up. Be aware that there is usually a very long line to buy tickets to go to the top of the Tower so either get there early or buy your tickets online and skip the queue. There is a lower level that has a restaurant and views over the surrounding area but the viewing platform at the top gives you a better outlook over the city. Overall I enjoyed visiting the Eiffel Tower and will definitely go back next time I'm in Paris even if it's just for a picnic in one of the surrounding parks.

    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....

    This iconic landmark is the image that comes to mind whenever the city of Paris is mentioned. Standing at 323 metres tall, beside the River Seine in the Champ de Mars park, the Eiffel Tower is the most iconic symbol of The City of Light. Drawing more than 7 million visitors per year, the tower boasts two restaurants, including the second floor's famous Le Jules Verne, as well as viewing platforms where you can look out over the city. Designed by Gustave Eiffel, the tower was completed in 1889 ahead of the World's Fair. Designed as a temporary structure, it was almost demolished soon after – until experiments showed that radio transmissions could be made from its apex. You'll have to buy entry tickets to make your way up the tower. The cost of these varies depending on the level you want to reach and how you want to get there. If you’re feeling fit, you can walk 300 steps to the first floor, another 400 to the second floor, or take a lift. On the first floor there are informative displays, a cinema that shows films about the tower's history, and various artworks inspired by this famous landmark. On the second floor, there are further displays, souvenir shops, and a vision well, from which you can see all the way down to the ground immediately beneath you. The observation area on the top floor can only be reached by lift. From here, you can enjoy some of the best panoramic views of the city and the wider region from 275 metres in the air. There’s also a Champagne Bar where visitors can enjoy a glass of something sparkling if they fancy. The tower is open every day, except when weather conditions are treacherous; opening hours are extended in the summer. During peak seasons, you may find some floors closed for brief periods owing to congestion. Queues can be long so you’ll need to allow at least three hours for your visit. Even if you choose not to make the climb, you shouldn’t miss the light show that begins at nightfall, in which you can admire 20,000 flashing bulbs illuminating the tower. You can easily reach the Eiffel Tower on public transport including by bus, metro and train. The surrounding area is crowded, so parking spaces are likely to be hard to find.
