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.

  • Who Needs The Climb? NOT us LOL… We spent the day at the feet of the Eiffel Tower. We arrived at 2:30pm and stayed beyond 10:00pm. We had no great need to ascend the Tower as my wife has mobility...

  • High and BEAUTIFUL Tower. It closes late at 23:30 (French time) Restaurants and other stores up the tower, beautiful view from the top. France's greatest landmark ever! It is surprisingly very clean and safe! Definitely recommend going to the Eiffel Tower, no one will regret it! The Eiffel Tower is one beautiful creation that will never be ruined. Must go to it!
  • 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
  • A landmark against which all other landmarks should be measured. There's a reason it's the most visited site anywhere. I recommend taking the stairs if you can. They aren't very difficult and add a lot to the experience with unique views from the landing, great signage as you climb, and a feeling that you earned the incredible views at the top. Each terrace has gift shops, restaurants, and well maintained bathrooms. It would have been nice to see more options for those of us with dairy allergies, as they only have pizza, ice cream, and baked goods with cheese or cream.
  • If you are considering the very top....Make sure to buy the combo ticket online. We took the stairs for the first half of the tour. I read a blog that said you could buy the second ticket to the very top once you are up there on the second floor(if you decided to go all the way up.) You CANNOT unless you go all the way down to the bottom to the ticket office. Then you would have to purchase the combo pack, not a secondary ticket for the top only. We had 4 kids in tow. There are three lines. Green- you purchased tickets online and are riding the elevator up ( very long line) BLUE was the shortest line. Already purchased online tickets, and taking the stairs up. Pay attention to the colors. Don't get into the wrong line. There was a third line yellow I'm thinking to purchase tickets there? We went on the blue line and only took 2 minutes to get through. Go early for the best photo ops. We went at 930am. By 11:00 it was packed, no space to get photos without strangers in the photo.
  • 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! ❤
