We went at night, which was spectacular. Rode elevator up and walked down. Can't go to Paris without going up in the E.T.

Went to the top. View fantastic. Not too busy in October. The setting of the tower is excellent and the Hop on, Hop off bus stops right alongside.

It's definitely worth taking the time to go to the top if you've never done it before. I would recommend going early in the morning if you want to see the day view or very late at night if you would like to see the lights of Paris. We went at 9:30 pm and went straight in to the first level. Once there though, there was about a 30 min wait to go to the top. Still much better than waiting hours if we had gone couple of hours earlier.

We were fortunate to elect to visit the Eiffel Tower on a clear "blue bird" day, and the views of Paris were fabulous! One word of advice: get a paid reservation in advance, and avoid the very lengthy lines that develop very early on a good day. Those lines can take hours.Make and pay for your priority reservations at their official web site: www.tour-eiffel.fr

We visited the tower with our two kids and we were all impressed by the technique (the elevators were still the same as in the 1890's!) , we got an explanation of why the Tower was built and how only through Gustave Eiffel it was saved from being torn down after the world exhibition .Very interesting story behind the tower, beautiful workmanship and of course the view
