Enough has been said and sung about it. Simply put, it is a killer sight on every count. The only pity is huge queues to visit it.

This is indeed an amazing structure and I whole heartedly agree that it is a must-do when in Paris. However, the million and one other tourists meaning long queues and the constant hassle from the street sellers and touts trying to flog you their products and services does take the shine off the whole experience.

This is honestly something I would have regretted not seeing now that I have seen it. Pictures do not do this structure justice one bit. It is something you just absolutely have to see in person, so if you are not sure if it worth it, let me tell you, it is worth it!

recommend travellers to book the tickets for Eiffel tower online unless they want to spend hours in a queue. the transactions after you reach there are very smooth. you need to reach only 5 mins before your scheduled time and you will be taken directly in a elevator upstairs to the 2nd stage. there you need to change to another...

Paris is great; just returned. WATCH OUT FOR GYPSYS! They pick pocket you when you are signing there survey with clipboard. They are five or six girls and ask if you speak English.

We had the "picnic" lunch in the restaurant on the first level, 58 Tour Eiffel. It was absolutely wonderful and MADE our trip. My children will remember the experience for the rest of their lives. And to top off the wonderful view and atmosphere, the food was great!
