Raised in 1889 as the doorway curve to the 1889 World's Fair, on the Champs de Mars in Paris, Eiffel Tower has become a worldwide social symbol of France.
A standout amongst the most unmistakable structures on the planet, the Eiffel Tower has transcended its status as a French landmark to become a world heritage.
An estimated 7.1 million individuals visited it in 2011; and the tower accepted its 250 millionth guest in 2010.
The tower, so beloved today, faced a good deal of opposition from Paris art and architecture community before it was erected. They were outraged that this monstrous edifice would be allowed to dominate Paris culture ahead of the more orthodox Notre Dame, Louvre and other favorites.
The tower is accessible from anywhere in Paris, but approaching it on board the line 6 of the Metro from Station Bir-Hakeim provides a rather exciting view.
At the tower, go up by lift, or if you've a strong constitution, by stairs. After drinking in the breeze and the views, stuff your stomach proper at the Le 58 tour Eiffel, or the Jules Verne, two excellent restaurants. Or, bring a packed lunch to enjoy on the front lawn on a balmy day (check with the weatherman). Be prepared for torturously long queues.
Being an extremely popular attraction of Paris, or rather the world, Eiffel Tower is always crowded; even in the off season.
The best way to explore it is by booking Eiffel Tower tickets that will help you to skip the line and give you a faster access to the place. Tickets for Eiffel Tower can be bought at the counter, but for getting the specific Eiffel Tower tour tickets, it is better to pre-book.

Extremely breathtaking. Totally worth every minute. I never thought I would spend more than 3 hours in a place like this. But we did. We visited the first floor which has a restaurant, a cafe, and outdoor seating even in the winter. It's an igloo type of seating area to shield you from the cold. The restaurant doesn't open until dinner time. So we didn't get to eat there. In the second floor, it is very high up. We enjoyed the sights since we got there right before sundown and stayed until dark. They also have a cafe in the second floor, the coffee was good, and the macaroons were to die for. When we went to the first floor we went down the steps from the Second Floor, it wasn't that bad since it was going downhill , but on the way back up they told us we couldn't go up the elevator again so we had to go up the steps, that was a hike. The light show started at 6 p.m. And then every hour on the hour after that.

The Eiffel Tower was a spectacular sight as soon as we arrived in Paris. The tower looks gorgeous, especially at night when it lights up. The most representative landmark of Paris is a nice place where you can spend few hours of taking pictures. Great view from the top floor if is not foggy. Also is better if you catch the changing from day to night. I would suggest to buy online tickets to skip the long line from the ticket offices. The experience was wonderful. You must try the crepes north of the tower. Absolutely amazing.
The Eiffel Tower was a spectacular sight as soon as we arrived in Paris. The tower looks gorgeous, especially at night when it lights up. The only thing to be mindful of is... the mud, there is no concrete pavement surrounding the tower, and also the many many street vendors. The vendors can become overwhelming especially when they keep walking behind you so you can buy their products. Other than that, the experience was wonderful. You must try the crepes north of the tower. Absolutely amazing.
