We pre booked our tickets to avoid the queues down below, and had tickets to the top. After a cloudy few days we were lucky to have the sun appear for our ascent. Wrap up warm in the colder months as you'll have to queue for the lift to the very top too and it's breezy and exposed up there.... More

Getting to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle at dusk while giving the husband a smooch was just amazing. Unfortunately the top of the tower was closed during our visit but with it being insanely cold we would not have ventured up. They picked the right time of the year for maintenance. If you do plan on climbing the tower, be... More

A must-see in Paris. Recommended - take the stairs up (yes there are a couple hundred of them, but you can go at your own pace and stop for wonderful views [and great/artsy pictures!] whenever you want.) Line for stairs was much shorter than elevator and you must take the elevator from the mid-point up to the top!

I always love seeing the Eiffel Tower..a beautiful icon of Paris. I just don't go up it as I don't like to stand in lines and it's not necessary to my experience of it.I do take the open air bus under it and get a real sense of how large and glorious it is.

At the time of writing, the soonest tickets available are three months from now. Do note that you can only get elevator tickets online, you don't have to wait that long in que when taking the 700 stairs up (and back down). Here are 5 reasons why you should take the stairs: 1) it's cheaper 2) better for your health!... More

It was my third time here and I still have yet to go up the Eiffel Tower! This iconic place is full of tourists, performers, and unfortunately gypsy's. One grabbed my arm, another Gypsy tried to get me to sign their "handicapped petition" and donate money. Apparently while you're signing their petition that's when they go through your stuff but...

The tower dominates the landscape of Paris city centre and draws you to it. It is simply a must do visit if in Paris. The visit itself was excellent, well organised and although there were queues these moved quickly. Not cheap but worth it for the experience. We went to the summit, again if you are there the top is... More

The views are stunning. Paris opens up as a great design. I found great cast iron plattes with the names of the in vogue designers of the period. Nice touch. Better than the tower at Blackpool, but so busy.

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.
