Eiffel Tower, Paris

Also known as the "Iron Woman," Eiffel Tower is an iconic symbol of the City of Lights. You’ve no doubt admired this tower in countless films, but when you see it for the first time you'll be blown away by its magnificent scale and grandeur. Gustave Eiffel built the 325-m (1,063 ft) tower in 1889, and for 40 years this was the tallest structure in the world. As you ascend to the third level, realize you’re climbing to the highest accessible observatory platform open to the public in the entire European Union. On the first and second levels, dine in the restaurants, shop in the boutiques, and enjoy breathtaking city views. An audio guide and an iPhone app in English offer historical and cultural tidbits. Taking the Métro to the Ecole Militiare stop, then strolling up Champ de Mars, is a lovely way to arrive. Plan to see Eiffel Tower and other attractions that appeal to you using our Paris planner .

  • No body can miss this masterpiece in Paris. It looks a bit old and rough bit you forget it when you ascend (in an elevator of course) to the summit of it and get the birds eye view of the magnificent ...  more »
  • Wonderful view of the city from above. Go to the night so they can see the city light all illuminated. And if it's a cold day, get your coat on too and some snacks, ' cause it's going to be hours in line.

  • Had a ultimate experience of tour Eiffel. Went up to level 2 with lift . breathtaking views of lovely Paris city from level 2.you can also go to the top level with additional ticket. Eiffel tower is really a architectural marvel. You must see it's beauty at night when lights illumination is spectacular. Don't miss to see this glittering magnificent views at 17:00 pm at night. Loved it. Visited in September
  • Beautiful tower. I really like older industrial architecture, and this is one of the most beautifully crafted towers in the world in my opinion. If you go Paris, go Eiffel tower. Take out an hour for it to fully take the architecture and scale of this building in. Visit both sides! With the grass fields on one side, to rest for a bit. And the other side the palace and fountains. Don't forget them!
