Eiffel Tower, Paris
(4.6/5 based on 90,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Eiffel Tower into our Paris itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 打從第一次到巴黎登上艾菲爾鐵塔後,每次重遊故地都必然要到塔上吃一頓午飯,細味紅酒,試問可在這浪漫之都吃個午飯再帶幾分酒意,夫復何求! 
  • Many years ago we visited Paris and didn't go up the Eiffel Tower so this time we made sure we did, and we were not disappointed. Our trip to the Eiffel Tower was on a Sunday in November when it wasn'...  more »
  • This thing is HUGE, can not overstate that. Yes you expect it to be big but it's just breath taking how big it is in person, well worth a visit but maybe don't walk up like we did, paying for it now i...  more »

  • Beautiful of course. Marvelous during the day, but the best time to see it is by night. Every hour on the hour after 9pm the tower lights up with sparkling lights. Its lovely and romantic. Crowds are ridiculous no matter what time of year. Best time to go is early in the morning. Take the stairs to the first level, there is NO wait time for the stairs. Once you do that you can take the elevator to go up from there, and the wait is nothing compared to waiting in line at the very bottom for an elevator. Though it is pretty up close, take a walk through Montemarte and get a wonderful view of the city, and the Eiffel Tower from a distance.
  • Have been wanting to see this land mark for many years. Finally got around to and it this year. It's much bigger than I thought it would be. We took the stairs to the to top (entrance fee for the stairs was only 7 euros). You'll need to be in a fit condition to make it all the way but it's satisfying once your up there. The views around Paris from the tower are amazing. The whole of the tower lights up at night and looks stunning. There's a cafe, restaurant, gift shop, toilets and even a small movie area where you can watch the construction of the tower. Fantastic experience and certainly one you'll remember.
  • Loved every minute of our experience in restaurant 58. Our waiter was very polite and quick with bringing on the next courses. We were given a window seat which I must say was probably one of the best seats in the house. We had a view of the river looking out towards the aquarium. The food was tremendous, we found menus on our table which we thought we would choose a starter and main and sweet from. No, we were given everything on the menu, 2 starters, 2 main dishes and 2 sweets, it was a taster menu which was absolutely gorgeous. We will definitely do again when back in Paris.
  • Easily the least interesting tourist attraction in Paris. If you want to go up it for the view, fine, go check out the view. But otherwise, it's just a big ugly chunk of iron, and there are other lovely views of Paris that can be got for free. It's fun to take pictures of the tower from a distance, as part of a skyline or city-scape shot. But that was the only joy I got out of it.
  • Iconic structure. It's marvelous to see in person and to climb steps and ascend/descend by elevator. Awesome, panoramic views of Paris. Worth the money. Beware of gypsies and pickpockets. I recommend wearing a money belt.
