Create an itinerary including Eiffel Tower
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.

  • Definitely a sight to see in person. A day time visit is nice but it sparkles so beautifully at night.

  • Don't take a photo as if you are in a pizza tower, it's too bad. Also, try taking pictures after the sun goes down. nothing in the daytime.

  • Superb view day & night! The view from the ground is very good. There is no need to go up for capturing a picture, but it's good to enjoy taking a walk to the tower. Best to take a ticket online(I prefer walking till the second level and coming down(€10)). The city view from the second level is more beautiful and clear than from the top level. Also we are here to see the tower, not the city view! Walking till the second level is a little hard task, so if you are capable of only walking, otherwise take the lift.
  • Paris is an incredible experience with innumerable museums, parks, restaurants and beautiful sites but the Eiffel Tower is one of the most interesting places to visit. The view from the top is breathtaking but it's not the only thing to enjoy. Around the tower we can find hundreds of souvenirs sellers, people from all parts of the world, restaurants, street artists and many other surprises. There is a flow of energy which makes the visit a remarkable experience.
