Just pull up a park bench and chill out... but bring your water from the corner store otherwise you're paying 7 euro. Lot's of people watching to do and a quick walk to the George V for shopping and eating... of course you should see it

Looks like it takes a couple of hours to get through the line to ride up to the observation levels. A warning sign advises of "saturation" up there. However, if the weather is nice, enjoy the evening on the lawn of the park that faces the tower. A lovely and enjoyable way to spend part of your evening.

As you exit the metro you have probably been targeted by the the gangs of romain's who are dressed as tourists. As you walk along the payment towards the Eiffel Tower you will see small groups of crowds gathered around a man/boy with three cups and a ball. The crowds are whipped up to bet on finding the ball.

Go early in the morning to avoid the lines. Eat at restaurant before. Not worth the price. Small kitchen way up there, so not a big selection. The champagne bar at the top is only a siding window like a drive up. Wear a coat very winding up there.

Went to the second level. Great views! Long lineup. If you buy from the souvenir shops, watch what you are getting. The guy in the shop added a little souvenir magnet, 4.50 Euro, to my purchase which I didn't notice until I got back to my hotel.

OK, so, first, do NOT do the Eiffel tower unless you book a tour in advance and it has skip the line privileges. (We went with Fat Tire Bike tours, which was quite good.) If you don't, you'll end up in line for hours just to get in. And this is Paris; you don't want to waste half a day... More

Everyone wants to see the Eiffel Tower at some point and so for that it was great! The view is fabulous and I highly recommend saving the money and walking up instead of taking the elevator. The walk up is great and really you don't need to take the elevator to go any higher. They have cute swings on the... More

Think about the most famous structures in the world. Your top five likely include the pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, and the Statue of Liberty. That's pretty amazing when you consider that one is 5,000 years old and the other two are pretty much from the same designer and the same time period far later. Yes, the Eiffel Tower is iconic,...

The structure is amazing to look at and walk around, giving you an amazing view of the surrounding city, only wish you could go higher! However beware of pickpockets and unofficial sellars lurking by the entrance also avoid buying things on the tower as its highly expensive and are cheaper in stores further down the mall.
