    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!

    An establishing shot of Paris incorporates a classic view of the Eiffel Tower to set the scene in RED 2 (2013) as the team travel to the French capital to intercept "The Frog" who for information.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 ❤️
  • 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

    €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.

    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.

    Everything.....the Architecture, the steel structure, construction, the surroundings.....and the elevator the most, becoz it takes us there on top. Marvelous, Awesome, Amazing.
  • ✨#IamRomdelacrème✨
    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
  • Natalie C.
    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!

    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?

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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!

    What can I say? Tour eiffel. . Climb all the way to the top. We payed 17 euros per person for the elevator. . Didn't regret it. The view is breathtaking! 💖

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!

    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)

    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

    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!!!!!
  • 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.

    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.

    THE must-see in Paris. You HAVE to go upstairs at the 3rd floor to see the incredible panorama. There is a nice restaurant at the 1st floor called le Jules Vernes.

    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.

    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.
