The Eiffel Tower
Paris just wouldn't be Paris without the Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel). Designed by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World Fair, at 300 meters (984 feet) it was once the world's tallest building. Not everyone was happy when it was first built; many considered it an eyesore and wanted it pulled down, but today it is one of the world's most visited and iconic monuments. The first and second floors can be reached using the stairs, and elevators take visitors to the magnificent view at the top.
I went to the ET a few years back and dreaded that long wait in line. I decided to wait until Monday evening and I actually thought that the Tower was closed. No line and I was able to stay up at the top as long as I wanted to. It was a breathtaking view. Go when the sun sets. you wont forget it.
you will be amazed how the carts are pulled up to the top ......worth the wait and stay up on the top and see all the cities around the world to see how far away you are..... perfect for picture taking !!!
I love the eiffel tower! I always want to go there! Its is the best! I always study information about the eiffel tower cause i cant get enough of it! Paris is definatley the city of lights and romance! I also like to call it the city of dreams! It is the best! The best place in the world!
Seeing the whole Paris on Eiffel Tower isn't worth it. Because you would want to take pictures of Paris WITH the Eiffel Tower. Additionally, the second level upwards are cage-barred, so if you wanna take a picture of yourself, it would be you+Paris+cage=disappointment.
Instead, I would suggest take a stroll around the parks in front of Eiffel Tower. It's a lovely spot and you can take as many pictures as you want for free.
the Eiffel Tower is definitely worth waiting in line to go to. I went in june when tourist season is at its highest so we went at like 11pm, during the summer its open until midnight i think, but we were only able to go up to the second level because it was so late so the top level was closed, but the upside was we waited in line for like 10 minutes. When we went the tower was lit blue once an hour with beautiful twinkling white lights, it was beautiful and one of the best parts of the trip. One thing tourists need to be careful of though are gypsies, they frequent tourist hot spots like the tower and the are pretty aggressive stand your ground but beware they can get nasty. I think next time i will go during the day and during the off season, something to look forward to!
