Eiffel Tower, Paris

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 .

  • Second time I went but never ceases to amaze me! Value of the cheapest but worth every penny! Try to go when you're with open sky

  • this was the highlight of our paris trip. Always book tickets online to avoid lines. We had dinner at Eiffel. It was nice and expensive. It was the cost of the experience u get than the food all toget...  more »
  • We booked our visit. The booking site requires that we specify the date and time at which we will visit (or and non-refundable). We arrived on the spot time and time to get through. This is fast enough (+/-15 min a Sunday night): the first elevator... it arrived on the 2nd floor that is complicated to... I don't know how many people they count in the elevator "access Summit" but an hour after we had done 10 meters; the line which lay before us was still on at least 1 h 30! What I find outrageous: do not schedule impose if you fail! Tell people when they book the minimum time they must provide? The leader Cup ticket doesn't help (except maybe school holidays): we had ahead of the people who came to arrive and take their ticket at the ticket office outside! > where is the priority? We had this option for my daughter who was 10 years old on this day and we found the nice idea of being at the top of the Eiffel Tower for the occasion! Result, we have seen that the 2nd floor, and she was disappointed!

  • Magical place. I waited for more than an hour in the line just to get to the ticket counter and then half an hour more to get to the lift. It was worth every penny. When I get to the top, I felt like I'm in the top of the world. The view from there is mind blowing. It's winter so a bit cold. But my God, if you are a thrill seeker or adventurous it's a must. It's one of the best man made landmarks in the world and it rightly is. Never forget it
  • If you don't visit Eiffel Tower your France visit will go into vain. It was amazing to be there for a while. I will suggest to go there keeping minimum three hours in hand. And it is better to visit there in the afternoon. You must go to the top of the Eiffel Tower during the day light so that you can enjoy the view in day light and the hours of darkness also. You have to plan for some extra time to purchase the ticket. So....have a nice journey to Eiffel Tower....
  • Great Monument and one of the must see in Paris. The visa around it is amazing but the best spot to see it and take pictures are either from the Trocadéro square as it is a bit high and gives a nice view. If you want another view that is amazing and with way less people then I would advice you to go to the other side just in front of the military school which is considered behind the tower. Personally I think it gives the best view for photos. Be aware of pickpocketing if you decide to go to the top. These people could be everywhere so be careful. The view from the top is amazing during the day or even at night. The tower has 2 restaurants, one which more expensive than the other. Both restaurants are great and I highly advice them specially Le Jule Verne
  • Is very impressive to see how big it really is. Beautiful from the ground level, amazing to go up and see the entire city. Is very windy up there so go properly prepare for it. At night is breathtaking the view from the top of the Eiffel. And the tower all light is beautiful. You can make reservations to have dinner at the restaurant located at the tower. The tower has different little shops.
