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 32 -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.

  • Was twice-both at night. Sparkles nevroâtno-9 and 10:00 pm turn on illumination times 2 every hour for 5 minutes. You can watch from the Champs de Mars-it perekopano now. But grass on the sides of it. Sit quietly fail-Idyll violated Arab comrades with buckets, navâzčvo offering champagne and beer. Every three seconds. And from the Trocadero. And there, a bunch of students and tourists. Find a quiet spot is not easy. Yes, go boldly into the Trocadero Metro station after him-to leave after.

  • It's an amazing tourist destination. The Tower itself is taller than one might think and going to the top is an unforgettable experience. The lines are not that long and move quickly. Beware of the street vendors, especially those selling highly priced souvenirs. There are also young women with clipboards, who target Asian tourists to donate 20€ to a fake organization. Just leave and ignore them.
  • What else is there to say?? I was so amazed when I first got there. The tower itself is so much larger than I expected it to be. There are many people who want to go up there, but we didn't have to wait at all to get our tickets to walk up there. The view from up is awesome, but I think it would be eve better from the real top. Next time I'm going I will definitely go there again.
  • The Eiffel Tower is the most magnificent and visually stunning landmark in the world! The chance to walk below, around and finally climb to his beautiful structure, boggles the mind! The tower was designed by engineers Maurice Koechlin and Émile Nouguier, two senior engineers working for the Compagnie des Établissements. Architect Stephen Sauvestre added some decorative arches and glasswork before gaining Gustave Eiffel approval. Eiffel bought the patented design from these gentlemen (c.1884). It was 1887 before construction on the foundations began. The Eiffel Tower is absolutely gorgeous, both at day and especially at night with its lights. What a joy of my life to have visited with my family! which built the tower in 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 Paris World's Fair.
  • The absolute highlight of my trip to Paris. The vies are spectacular, especially in the early evening when the sun is going down and the lights are coming on! I took the stairs and it was well worth it! Be warned that you need to take them up until (I think) the third level, which is the highest you can go before you need to pay again if you want to go up to the very top.
  • I love it here. It can get busy but queues move fast and it's worth it for the views on top. Even if you don't wish to go up it, it's great to see it on person.
