We celebrated our 30th at the Eiffel tower! My strong recommendation is to go to a nearby deli to buy a baguette, cheese, meat, olives, and beverage. Then sit on either side of the Eiffel tower to have the most amazing and romantic picnic ever!...More

Nice place to visit. You can go to the top of the tower and see Paris from the top. Or stay at nice landmarks.

We're glad we visited, but the crowds were huge. A 35 minute wait for the elevator up to the summit and a 30 minute wait coming down (jump the line is only available for the second level lifts.) After all that, the summit views were...More

Tips Don't go purchasing tickets on the spot make prior booking . Add 45 min to 1 hour before scheduled time. Take into consideration that the closest metro station is 15 to 20 minutes walk. Be careful of vendors with tower replicas. The 19: 00...More
