The Eiffel Tower
Paris just wouldn't be Paris without the Tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower). Designed by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World Fair, at 300 meters (984 feet) it was then 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 monuments. The first and second floors can be reached using the stairs, and elevators take visitors to the magnificent view at the top.
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!
I had always dreamed of going up the Eiffel Tower and seeing all of Paris... being up there, I was not disappointed. As we approached the tower (and is new coat of paint) I sat on a bench for a bit just taking it all in, marvelling at all the details in the iron and being in awe that this structure was built so long ago! The line up was rath long, but very worth it, since it all only cost 11.50 Euros! Once on the second floor, the view was amazing, you can see all the bridges on the Seine, the Basilique Sacre-Coeur off in the distance and all the rooftops with their little chimneys. I chickened out when it came to taking the lift up to the top floor, but enjoyed my experience just the same.
it is really a beautifull and coooooooool place for visit.when your are going to paris you must have over all information about paris.yu must enjoy the music upon the Eiffel Tower becoz it incerase the enjoyment for uuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
We were there in the winter and it was cold. But once we got to the top we didn't seem to notice the cold. Go early in the AM TO avoid the lines and crowds. Even in Dec. it gets packed. If you go to paris it is a must do.
If one ever finds herself or himself in Paris, France, make sure to see the Eiffel Tower. Paris is know for this famous amazing structure. Night time on a clear night is best, but take the ride to the top...it is worth your time. There is a great viewing spot across the river on top of the hill. Overall the Eiffel Tower is a "MUST SEE" !!
all my family members were scared in that moment and i was exicted so when we went up
its like ur gonna fall from the height and when we went to the summet its like u r watching all paris it has coffie shops in some floor its was in the winter so we froze
and drank some hot coffie and hot choclate
u better go there im not enough to tell u everything so u better go in winter.
We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday here at the Jules Verne Restaurant. It was an unforgettable experience; if you have the opportunity to see this, you must! The food was fabulous and the view was divine.
To stand under the eiffel and look up is one memory I will treasure forever. Unfortunately I must have come at a busy time as the line up for the lift was huge. I found the cost of 4 euro per child and around 7 per adult quite reasonable but sadly we couldn't wait in the line. There is always next year!
