Our second visit but first time going to the top level. Very impressive. Everything about this tower is almost overwhelming. It's height, it was the worlds tallest building for 40 years. And the scale of the four "legs" that hold up this monumentle structure. We prepurchased out tickets which is vital. As well as arriving on time for your allotted... More

Second visit because it was closed last year during the Nov 13th incident. It cost 17 Euros to go to the top but it was worth every cents. You cannot get better view of Paris other than this. there are 2 levels of security checks so travel light to this attraction. Be prepared to wait, from buying of tickets to... More

I had been to the Eiffel Tower many times but had never gone up. That is an experience in itself. Very well organized and controlled. We had reservation for 8pm. And that means 8, not 7:45 or 7:50! 😄 Series of two elevators with two different levels of observation decks. Crowded but if you just wait a little bit, the... More

Wonderful experience my only regret is not going to the restaurant. Be sure to take notice of the chimney behind the Western part of the Eiffel Tower.

We took a dinner cruise and had the most wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower. Marvelous! It lights up at night and sparkles. I highly recommend taking a river cruise. There were thousands of people sitting around on the grass along the river drinking wine and having picnics. Sooooo romantic!

Not planned but we somehow ended up at the Eiffel Tower towards dusk. Turned out to be the most perfect time to visit. We got to see the tower and the views from atop both in daylight and by night. Simply fantastic. Words can't describe it. You have to experience it fir yourself. We also happened to be extremely lucky... More

This is a must do, the views are incredible and nothing like lt at all. Go early and avoid the lines. Many people selling things so keep an eye open and avoid the people asking money for students, etc.

Gorgeous at night with the sparkling lights! No need to pay for a ticket to go underneath, the best photos are from father away. There are tons of people there around 9:00 still so don't be afraid to go at night. Just be cautious because of all the people selling champagne, beer and souvenirs.

The Eiffel Tower is really Paris to its core. It's grand, pretentious and overwhelming all at the same time. But it's so worth it to see it from every angle possible and at night as well.

Definitely have to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower when in Paris. Great views but very crowded at the top and a little scary with all those people in a small area. Beautiful views of the city. They do have a quick snack place on the first and second levels but just a restroom at the top. I... More
