We like to eat dinner in one of the many good bistros and restaurants in the neighborhood and then walk over for the light show, but remember it gets dark very late in the summer. Taking the elevator to the top during the day is a nice "one-time" thing, especially with young children.

You must go up to at least the first stage, even if you have a fear of heights. The view is amazing and no better from higher up. The worst part is the queue to get up.

We decided not to queue to go up the Tower but took several photos, including awesome shots at night with the sparkling lights. Can't go to Paris without seeing this.

If you go to Paris you have to go up the tower! Best views over the city possible. Would recommend you get there early if the weather is nice as we queued for over an hour at the bottom and then another hour to go from the first lift to the top.

A famous icon that lives up to expectations - just be prepared to wait in line, with everyone else. Even in the cold and rain at night, the wait was over one hour.

The view at night is best. From looking at it from Champ de Mars, to the middle podium view, to the top observation deck, it is just amazing. Remember to bring a jacket, if windy, and of course your camera.
