A must see place! We went up and did a tour of the tower.

They also have a souvenir shop up there as well it was great.

We also went up using the elevator and took the stairs down.

Some say going up the Eiffel is not worth the effort, I totally disagree, the structure and view is awesome and highly recommended. We loved Paris!

You are faced with a dilemma when you decide to visit the Eiffel Tower. Book advance tickets and take a chance on the weather or turn up ticketless and queue for ages.
Security measures mean the queues are slower than ever even before you show/buy your ticket and start the ascent.
Having booked we entered at the river entrance (from Trocadero) and once we cleared security headed towards the green flag at the north entrance, avoiding the ticket queue that was growing even at 10:00 am.
The lift takes you to the 2nd tier which has spectacular views. From there you can buy tickets to the summit if you haven’t already for more impressive, scarier views.
My advice, buy tickets to the 2nd tier on the internet and to the summit if its a clear day. The day after our visit rain and low cloud meant that the summit couldn't be seen.

A visit to Eiffel Tower is a must & not to be missed when in Paris. For our stay recently, we when there twice. But unfortunately was pick pocketed which spoilt our trip. Where our personal identity card, driving license, bank cards and cash gone. And spending hours at police station to lodge our report.
Just be mindful as these pick pocketer are professional as they work in groups.

The Eiffel Tower is exactly what you expect to see, a massive, overwhelming structure. There's just something about the beast that is the Eiffel, that is amazing and awe inspiring.
However, the sad part is that due to the current state of constant threat, visiting the Eiffel is much like taking a trip on an airplane. There is now a barricade around the entire base of the tower, you have two security checkpoints to go through in order to go up, only one checkpoint if you just want to hang out at the base of the tower. These checkpoints are more invasive than airport security. "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety" - Benjamin Franklin
