Don't let the queues discourage you. The ones for the stairs move fast than the ones for the lifts. The views are spectacular!! Make a reservation for the restaurant or you may have to wait a long time. I ended up in the cafe getting a sandwich and eating it outside. The queues for the ladies room are long too.

We went to visit the Eiffel tower during our stay in Paris. We pre booked tickets as it was the school holidays when we visited and we expected it to be very busy. It was definitely worth pre booking and printing out our tickets in advance as this meant that we only queued for about 15 minutes. We booked the... More

This not everybody's favourite piece of architecture but it's mine. I've probably seen it from very angle now and been on every floor. It is beautiful and even more beautiful from afar. Go to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and have a look!

When in Paris, you obviously can't miss the Eiffel tower. You just can't get enough of this beauty - an architectural masterpiece. A local gave me some wonderful insights & history about the Tour Eiffel. Beware of pickpockets though. The trip to the top is probably something worth taking. You could walk up to the 2nd level & then complete... More

I love coming to Paris and seeing the Eiffel Tower. We've spent time hanging in the park waiting for our hotel to get ready, had dinner in the tower, climbed it and just stared up at the tower and took pictures. It's a site to be seen. The park area can be hit or miss. Later in the day the... More

Lovely, just lovely. Paris is the city of Love for a reason. Walk along the Sena looking up at the Eiffel Tower, it is impossible not to fall in love. I climbed up the stairs to the second platform for an amazing view, so worth the five euros.

We bought a skip the line combined tour of the tower, river Seine and Louvre Museum. No waiting on any queue's and worth the price.
