We tried to buy tickets in advance but they were already sold out online. We found out that they release a small amount of tickets each day and my brother in law was able to get the tickets for everyone on the trip (5 total). We also heard that you could climb the 700 steps to the second level to... More

The first day we visited the tower was closed due to industrial action. Apparently this can happen quite often and without notice. This meant a second visit the next day to actually go up the tower. Even so it was still worth the effort. There are some good snack bars at the base and the gardens are also worth a... More

What a huge iconic piece of Paris beautiful when lights are on! Watch out for pick pockets. Worth a trip up if you don't mind heights! Breathtaking landmark!

One of the must see in Paris. Make sure to go during daytime & evening, both views are equally stunning. I didnot go up the tower, too crowded, however I didnot feel that I am missing much.

Everybody knows about the Eiffel Tower. It's very tall, is very crowded, it has fantastic views from the top (if you are prepared to queue) , it looks spectacular at night. Not many toilets near by. If you are in Paris, you have to go there

this is one of the few attractions in the world that is actually bigger and more impressive than you expect. We didn't stay for long as we had other things scheduled but it was a wonderful experience and we will never forget it.

Love the view of Paris from the top. Queues were long though, something must be done about time wasted on long queues. Otherwise it was a wonderful trip. It's a little cold up there so one has to dress up warmly

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.
