Amazing place and so romantic and wonderful!!! We prebooked and missed out the 3-4hr queues!!! Simply walked up, showed ticket and was in lift with 10-15 mins!!! As amazing and spectacular as expecting if not more!! Defo view from trocadero at night for the lights!!!!!

As romantic and fabulous as everyone says it is! I love that it lights up every hour :) This is also another ticket that is worth purchasing online before hand. We went in off season and in bad weather and still waited 45 minutes to get a ticket.

We got there at 9.15am thinking it was open at 9.30am but it seems it opened at 9am and the queues were already hugh, going across the open area underneath and down the street. This was the longest queue we experienced for all the attractions we saw in London and Paris. I only saw one beggar while we were there and there was security guards present. I saw some people who had purchased tickets in advance go past the queue. So if you can prebook do so. It took us 2 1/2 hours to get to the top just suffling along in one big line all the way up. There was just one lift at the ground level. Half way up it rained on us and was very cold and windy, so take a jacket. Being stuck in a line the whole way does take away from the experience and how can that be romantic. The view at the top was great. Because it had taken so long to get to the top we didn't spend so much time reading the information. We bypassed the shops because we didn't want to get out of line and have an even longer wait. To get down there's another line which took about one hour or so. We got down at 1.30pm. If you haven't done it, It's one of those must see experiences in Paris . I would only do this again if the lines were smaller.

It's as cliche as the Empire State Building in NY, but that doesn't mean it's not worth it. So long as you schedule a less-crowded time to visit, the view from the top is worthwhile. It's also fun to just walk around the base
