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

    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 famous landmark! Take a tour to the summit that cost €17 for an adult. Beware of pickpocket in the elevator! Enjoy the view on 2nd and top floor and visit the souvenirs shop. Bring jacket!

    I went there for fun, the joy of being on the top, and sightseeing. I'd suggest buying the tickets in advance to avoid the long queues.

    The views at night was the best. You can either catch a lift to the top or brave taking the stairs. Dining at one of the two on-site restaurants is a must do and made it a trip to remember.

    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

    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.

    Welcome to Paris! Did you know that the Eiffel Tower is also referred to as the Iron Lady by the French?

    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.

    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

    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.

    704 steps up to the 2nd floor, where you can take an elevator to the top. It costs 5€ for EU citizens 18-25 to walk up to the second floor, then €6.50 to take the elevator to the top!

    Buy your tickets in advance, watch weather condiditions prior. I suggest to walk down the tower instead using elevator, less crowded and better views. Is taller than you imagine the first time

    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 ❤️

    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.

    €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.

    Love love love!!! 🗼 Go on top! Enjoy view! We went to 2nd floor with stairs and didn't wait a minute. There we waited for elevator aprox 10min. Do go on weekends.

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

    You’ve seen it in the movies now it’s time to see the real thing! One of the must-see landmarks in the world, the Eiffel Tower will not disappoint you.

    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!

    If you wanna climb the tower, make your reservations well in advanced or u'll be stuck in a LONG queue! I say dine and wine up the tower for the experience. . after all it is the highlight of Paris

    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

    You can see a bust of Gustave Eiffel at the foot of the North pillar of the Eiffel Tower. It was made by Antoine Bourdelle and installed in 1929. Have you seen it?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The symbol of the city. You can admire from different places in the city. It's even more beautiful at night

    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.

    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.
  • AManda H.
    Such a beautiful site to see. Although there are loads of people but I reckon it's worth the trip here. It really is pretty when ur standing right before it.

    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!

    From the top you have the best view in Paris. Overcrowded. A ticket to the summit costs 17€. Book in advance, the queue is up to 2 hours wait. During the winter you can freeze waiting to get in.

    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.

    It's a cliché but it's also a good reminder of what's left to visit and a great way to review what you've seen. From here, you can see everything. Plus, the most iconic Eiffel building.

    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!

    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

    Have you seen that there are 72 names written on the sides of the tower under the 1st floor? These are the names of scientists honoured by France, engraved by Gustave Eiffel to pay tribute to them.

    Worth seeing, but definitely plan ahead. It'll take you two hours to get in. Book a guided tour on the typical get-a-guide-Sites, which results in faster entry. No padlocks, no knives!

    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.

    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!

    Do not go to the top. We bought our tix online & we still stood in an hour long line to take the 2nd elevator to the top. It is packed & uncomfortable. 2nd level is perfect & free if you walk stairs.

    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)

    If you're in paris you must go to the Eiffel tower! You can take the elevator up to the second level and then take another up to the highest level! Tourists beware of pickpockets!!!!!
