    Reach via Metro 6. First view will be visible when metro passes over the Bir Hakiem bridge. Get down at Bir Hakiem stop. It is best to book your ticket online. Lines at the counters can be humongous.

    Sit by the river right next to the tower for best view at midnight when it sparkles for 5 mins. Another option is to see it from louvre that's a further view! Beautiful 5 mins of ur life!

    I spent 13.5€ to go to the top of Eiffel tower. It was summer time and I came in the mid afternoon, the queue was so long! Better to come early. The view from the top was so great!

    The first tower in Paris!I think it is beautiful to see it from outside, or at night while it bright! But inside, you can only see the panoramica(a very good pano),eat in a restaurant,and buy souvenir

    You can’t say you’ve visited Paris until you’ve been jostled by the crowds at the Eiffel Tower. We like going at night when the crowds are smaller and the views of the City of Light are magnificent. Read more

    One of the World Iconic Landmark. Always busy and crowded, but it is better at night. It does the blinking lights for about 5 min. Once every hour. A must see when you are in Paris.

    You must go to the Eiffel Tower with the Fat Tire Tour Group. They help you skip the long lines, and provide a plethora of information about the monument's history. The second level was the best.

    Everything.....the Architecture, the steel structure, construction, the surroundings.....and the elevator the most, becoz it takes us there on top. Marvelous, Awesome, Amazing.

    Beautiful site to see! A must go. Beware of pick pockets. Don't be so caught in the ambiance that you aren't aware of your surroundings. Visit at day and night if you can ❤️

    Landmark of Paris and a place that you have to visit. If you feel adventurous take the stairs. You'll save a couple euros and enjoy the view for a bit longer. Interesting glass floor in the 1st floor

    If the weather's nice, take the stairs at around 7pm to be up there for the golden hour. Then eventually make your way down and watch as the whole tower sparkles every hour.

    The symbol of Paris. You probably can't say you've been to Paris if you haven't visited the Eiffel Tower. It may be better to visit it at night, when the lights are turned on.

    At the top of the tower enjoy a mesmerizing 360 view of the city of Paris. At the distance, you can see Notre-Dame, Sacré Coeur & several historic landmarks. Stay & enjoy the light show at sunset.

    Paying the little extra for the elevator was the best thing we could do! View is amazing!!! 😍 Come prepared if you visit during winter! Cold and wind was crazy up there!
  • Alissa Samia A.
    5/14/13: you have two options 1) first level only and about €8, or 2) all the way to the top €14,50. Both are great views, but might as well go to the top! Will take at least 30 min wait time

    Go upstairs and admire Paris sights. And at afternoon make a picnic at the garden. The best hour for check the lights it's 1am cause the Tower light turns off and you only see the sparkling lights.

    Book a table at the Jules Verne Restaurant at the tour and go all the way up in a private lift. The food is not what it use to be but it's still good and is a romantic experience to visit the tower.

    €17 to go right to the top for adults! Make sure to view the Eiffel after sunset, it sparkles every first 5 min of every hour. The views are breathtaking.

    Great experience! Make sure u book a priority pass ticket, because the line is huge. Once u get on the second floor don't hesitate to buy an extra 6euro ticket to go to the top of the tower

    Take the elevator up all the way to the top, the view is amazing and is worth the wait. If you're underneath the tower, look up , there are some intricate designs. Stay for the night show after dark.

    A few tips for visiting the Eiffel Tower: Bring cash, be aware that there's swimming at the overlook spot above it, and, if you want to get to the top, be prepared to walk or pay to use the tram.

    Get tickets for eating at 58 restaurant, buy online, it will include he lift to first level then (beat the line), ask waiter to sit you with a view of Trocadero if possible. Food is not too good :(

    Great views at the top. I would suggest going to the Eiffel Tower both during the day to take pictures and during night to see the light show. Buy food and drinks before because prices are high!

    Obviously, an amazing place to visit! Call in advance and make a reservation at Le Jules Verne (the restaurant in the Eiffel Tower). Improve your chances of getting a reservation by speaking French.

    if you don't want to wait in line for the lift and you are halfway fit. You can then take the steps .. its worth it and I made my kid happy. then you can take a lazy boat ride down the seine.

    Come here when the weather is good. Sometimes it's too cloudy you can't even see the top of it. Also, there are people asking if you understand English. Don't fall into their traps. They may steal.

    The views are not as good as the Arc of triumph but it was a really cool landmark. The elevator to go down its really slow go also in the night and see the lights show from champ de Mars.

    Go early in the morning. I went at 9:20 and I was up to the sommet by about 11am. The ticket line took about an hour and the lift lines about half an hr. Lines were fairly long but moved quickly.

    Make sure you go to the top of the Eiffel Tower at night for a spectacular view of the city. The champagne up there is great and the light up glasses are so cool!

    Make sure you go at night. Hang out on the lawn and have a drink. At 10pm to 1am, every hour on the hour the tower lights up for five minutes. Great show. This may be the last year for it.

    you should take whatever opportunity you can find to visit the Eiffel Tower – but make sure to keep the purposes it has served throughout history in mind as you marvel at its stunning beauty.

    Buy tickets in advance if possible to avoid queuing. Been twice in winter and the top level hasn't been open so only level 2 but still beautiful views. Approach from Trocadéro metro stop.

    Compre o ingresso com antecedência pela internet e evite filas. Gostei mais da vista do 1o piso. Avoid lines by booking your visit in advance via internet. I preferred the view from the 1st floor.
  • Renee K.
    Love the view, too bad a large part of the grounds around the tower are closed off by fences for security reasons cause you can't just walk underneath it now. I understand it though

    No sense in going to the 3rd level. Photos through the glass will be dull, and you can't see much from such height. And don't be afraid of climbing up the stairs to avoid queue for elevator.

    Get the ticket online to avoid waiting to buy the tix there and reserved online line is much shorter. sometimes sommit level is closed due to weather. You can mail a postcard at the sud entrance.

    Although it points skyward, this tower does not appear to be a homing beacon, but rather a decorative metal projection. The humans enjoy going to the top and looking down on those below them smoking.

    Try to get your tickets to the top of the tower in advance, waiting time even for tickets bought online is about 20 min. I guess regular tickets can reach up to 4 hours to get access to the tower.

    No Paris trip is complete without this historic landmark. Open daily 9am on June 17 to August (9:30am for the rest of the year). Dine at The Eiffel Tower 58 or have some drinks at The Champagne Bar.

    Its always fantastic viewing the City from the Tower. It is windy all the time. You can dine or even make a proposal to your love one at Tower 58. Have fun and enjoy the View.

    It may seem daunting, but try and take the stairs up to the first or second level...no stairs to the third (top) level. It's fun and makes the trip to the Eiffel Tower that much more worth it!!
  • Wimdu - Simply Better Than a Hotel
    I think the best moment to go there is during the night. It started to lighten and it is then so much beautiful ! And watch it from the Champs de Mars so you have an actual complete view of it.
