    Apparently the Eiffel Tower grows in summer! Made of iron, it expands with heat & can get more than 15 cm taller.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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 ❤️

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

    €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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
  • 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

    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.

    To be honest it impressed me! After seeing so many images I didn't expected to be surprised. Very beautiful! Saw the sunset, just amazing. Also, took the stairs and only took 40 min to get in.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Amazing place! Have been in Empire State Building and it was a great, but this was a special. I recommend to go top of the building!

    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.

    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!

    During the winter months, the tower starts to light up at 4:58pm. Get up close and watch the light show (lasts 5 min every hour on the hour)

    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.

    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.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Try to come by before nightfall and stay for the day and night view. They do not take the museum pass. Also don't bring an lock in your bag they will take it.

    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.

    A must see in Paris. Although it's very crowded and touristic, it's still romantic ! Buy tickets to go up to the summit in advance.
  • 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.
  • 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

    Beautiful. Try to come with time to see both day view and night view. And climb to the top!! The view is amazing.

    Two weeks would not be enough to take pictures of it and from the top of it. It is, indeed, a romantic spot to visit, but go there only with someone who really loves you.

    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.

    The behind the scenes tour is a definite must do! You see the bunkers, the mechanisms of the tower and you get to go to the third floor! The tour guides are also very cool!
  • Lilith A.
    Look up what time the sun is setting and time your visit for roughly 2 hours before. By the time you get to the top, you'll be rewarded with a fantastic sight. ^.^

    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.

    Always wonderful. Make sure you get there before 9.30pm as they no longer go to the top. Has to be on everyone's bucket list. Romance, engineering, history. Fantastic.

    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.

    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!!

    Go early/before it opens to avoid huge lines! Make sure to check the weather before going because if it's a super foggy day, you won't be able to see anything from the top level
