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.
The view from each level is fantastic. Even if you don't like heights, you can view all of Paris and still feel safe. The third highest level is enclosed, so you are actually don't feel like you are falling. For those who want to live dangerously, there is one more level that is outside and it the most breataking view, though a bit windy.
At night the whole thing lights up, which should not be missed.
Although it's something you see almost everywhere, you would never have guessed how majestic it is in person. Surrounded by greenery and so many people, along with tour buses, impossibly long lines, and even a dog park, it's definitely a place you shouldn't miss.
It's a little pricey, but being swept up the elevator, you can hear a collective gasp as everyone's breath gets caught. You look around and the whole of Paris is laid out in front of you, with roads seeming to lead right to the tower, and you're right in the middle of everything.
I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone and everyone.
The view from Eiffel is magnificent on a clear day, all Paris is spread out before the viewer.
Unfortunately, some tourists are rude, shoving, and pushing to get in line first for the elevators.
Even if it means separating a parent from a child who happen to be waiting patiently in line!
As a Southerner used to courtesy and manners, I found it to be a daunting experience.
And the abusers were not other Americans!
Te Eiffle Tower was very cool, theres so much history to it. Not only that but it is butiful too, its a darck shade of brown (but very nice)!!! what I dislike was how it's alway so crowded there. That make poeple not want to come because it's like you can't even move, but other than that I had a great time and can't wait to visit again!!
(comment back on mine if you agree with me!)
