Eiffel Tower, Paris

#1 of 29,973 in Things to do in France
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 .

  • Grab a lime scooter and head to the Eiffel Tower which was around 20 mins from the Warwick hotel! I was very scared but had so much fun! It’s so huge but so beautiful! You almost get intimidated by it...  more »
  • Magical but 2 h 30 of tail. Provide cut - line or ticket purchased. Unbearable to wait and it wasn't raining...

  • A must see if you're in Paris! Just the sheer vastness of it if you stand underneath and look up at it! It's free to look at but there's always queues for the various different tours to go up the tower, and varying prices.. ALL worth every penny! There's public amenities nearby the Eiffel Tower itself, and kiosks to get hot and cold beverages, an a few places to eat (which are usually busy too.) Also, there's often some form of entertainment going on.. be it dancers, mime artists, there was a really good magician one time we were there, just give a few euros or what you can afford. They don't hassle you as security is thankfully very tight around this area. It's also worth visiting the viewing point, especially on a clear night.. Breathtaking!
  • Magical place. I waited for more than an hour in the line just to get to the ticket counter and then half an hour more to get to the lift. It was worth every penny. When I get to the top, I felt like I'm in the top of the world. The view from there is mind blowing. It's winter so a bit cold. But my God, if you are a thrill seeker or adventurous it's a must. It's one of the best man made landmarks in the world and it rightly is. Never forget it.......
