Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
Also known as the "Iron Woman," Eiffel Tower is an iconic symbol of the City of Lights. You’ve no doubt admired this tower in countless films, but when you see it for the first time you'll be blown away by its magnificent scale and grandeur. Gustave Eiffel built the 325-m (1,063 ft) tower in 1889, and for 40 years this was the tallest structure in the world. As you ascend to the third level, realize you’re climbing to the highest accessible observatory platform open to the public in the entire European Union. On the first and second levels, dine in the restaurants, shop in the boutiques, and enjoy breathtaking city views. An audio guide and an iPhone app in English offer historical and cultural tidbits. Taking the Métro to the Ecole Militiare stop, then strolling up Champ de Mars, is a lovely way to arrive. Plan to see Eiffel Tower and other attractions that appeal to you using our Paris planner.

  • I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay to go to the top of the tower or not, but I'm so glad I did! At the top of the tower sits a cute little bar serving Moet, so that you can toast the sunset. I...  more »

  • The Eiffel Tower is definitely a symbol of love throughout the world. It is a very beautiful tower and you can go inside to certain height with additional ticket. The whole region around this area is full of architecture, beautiful sculptures, garden, and monuments. It is a must-visit for anyone visiting Paris and you should easily take a few hours to cover it completely. The sights of the Tower are simply awesome if you visit it during the Valentine's day. The night view is very beautiful. Perhaps it is better to visit the place before it gets dark and then stay until you have the night view too.
  • For me, Eiffel Tower will always be one of the most beautiful landmarks in the world, no matter what time you visit it. You can go climb up or take on the elevator to reach the top but I suggest you to take the elevator. The lights are really impressive at night, making you wouldn't want to stop taking pictures of it. But the best way to take pictures with this tower is using it as background from the ground. If you want to see the city view from the top, Eiffel Tower offers you good view but not the best. I prefer Arc de Triomphe instead. Just like the movies. Have the most amazing pictures of me and the family which were taken by a street vendor. He's been there long enough to know where you need to stand, how to angle the camera, and he even made people move out of the shot. The tower itself, impressive. Definitely a must do if you go to Paris. I walked down the river side and further down by the lovers bridge is another amazing spot to capture the tower. I went later in the afternoon which permitted me to get day shots, as well as night shots when the lights on the tower were turned on.It is spectacular.I suggested that you must come here.I love this place
  • Magnificent ❤ It is more attractive at night. The lights of the tower, as well as the City lights will take your breath away. You can enjoy watching from afar or better yet on a closer look. I visited the area the next day and wandered alone. It was great and peaceful. And yet again it's true indeed, it's better to experience it with your loved ones. Who wouldn't want a nice stroll with someone holding your hand? Right? 🥰 Enjoy Paris! ❤
  • Eiffel Tower, French Tour Eiffel, Parisian landmark that is also a technological masterpiece in building-construction history. When the French government was organizing the International Exposition of 1889 to celebrate the centenary of the French Revolution, a competition was held for designs for a suitable monument. More than 100 plans were submitted, and the Centennial Committee accepted that of the noted bridge engineer Gustave Eiffel. Eiffel’s concept of a 300-metre (984-foot) tower built almost entirely of open-lattice wrought iron aroused amazement, skepticism, and no little opposition on aesthetic grounds. When completed, the tower served as the entrance gateway to the exposition. Thank you 🗼♥️
  • The symbol of Paris and one of the most photographed structures in the world, a visit to the Eiffel Tower is a must for all travelers. Few landmarks inspire such a passion for travel as this single iron structure. Young travelers heading out on the road for the first time, couples looking for a special getaway, artists looking to spur their creativity, and romantics of all types are all drawn to Paris. This is a city where history and culture collide and where travelers of all kinds can find the experience they're after
