This is a structure that must be seen from far away, up close, up high, and especially at night! The only thing that mars the visit is the carnival like atmosphere around it!

Although you would expect to pay quite a lot of money for a city centre tourist attraction on a recent trip to Paris with my wife and daughter we decided to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Unfortunately it costs 14.5 Euros each, a total of 43.5 Euros (nearly £40.00) and no matter what time you go you are looking at queuing for between 1 - 2 hours.

You have to do it, and you get some great views of the rest of Paris. The experience is basic, though they are working on developing this. Pre-book well in advance (months if possible) to avoid the lengthy queues.

The "behind the scenes" tour was informative & interesting. Lawrence (from memory) our English speaking guide was most professional.
Unfortunately the rain and mist dimmed our view, though we were able to take a number of photos of the closer area's of Paris. A good experience, plus the added bonus of "jump the queue" to enter. Well priced.

I visited the Eiffel Tower in December, 2010 and May, 2013. My experiences are different from each other. During the winter in Paris, the weather is usually foggy. Therefore, there is no meaning in visiting Eiffel. You can't see anything. Do not buy your ticket online to skip the line if you are visiting Paris in winter. First, you should see the weather condition in Paris. However, if it is spring or summer, you can buy your ticket online to skip the line or you can wait for aprox. 1 hour to arrenge your time. The view from the top is just great. No matter how hot the weather is in Paris, you should have sweater in your bag because the wind is really cutting. You wait for the elevator in the open area. Peopel say the best time to visit Eiffel is just before getting dark, so you can see the view before sunset, during sunset and after sunset.
