Buy tickets from tourist office or concierge so you avoid lines to get in; nice day will have long lines for top floor elevator. However, 2nd floor landing has great views of Paris and beyond from North, South East and West. A MUST GO!!

What can I say? It's the EIFFEL TOWER! the views are amazing and the tower is beautfiul! If you can, take the stairs; you can go whenever you like (ie when it's sunny), see a lot more of the structure and it's cheaper as well!

It took us less than 1/2 hour to get to the top. The view is amazing. If you get the chance, make reservations for the restaurant. The food was just what you would think of when looking for authentic French cuisine.

Amazing place to see. Awesome architecture. It was super windy and cold, so we did not go up. Next time I will pack a coat!

No need to say how great the Eiffel Tower is, but it is best to walk across the bridge and get your pictures from across the river as you will be elevated and clear of any other potential distractions. Amazing.

After going to Paris once before and not going up the Eiffel Tower, I wanted to do it the second time I visited. It was well worth going to the top as the price was really reasonable! Queues were not that bad and the view of Paris is well worth it!

Well, Paris is much, much more than Eiffel Tower. The attraction is not really that beautiful, but it has charisma. Don't miss the opportunity to see it at the sunset and at night. At night is speechless. And at night, till 1am, every hour the cintilant lights flash for 5 minutes.

Staying in Tour Eiffel / Invalides

Neighborhood Profile
Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
