Eiffel Tower - Review
"I ought to be jealous of the tower. It is more famous than I am".
Thus spoke Gustave Eiffel of his iconic creation. Raised in 1889 as the doorway curve to the 1889 World's Fair, on the Champs de Mars in Paris, it 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. Planning a trip to Paris is incomplete without visiting this tower. 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.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Reviews
Surprisingly enjoyable to go up the tower by elevator. Busy but not too crowded, even on a Friday night in summer. Despite what many people claim online (self-justifying scrooges, no doubt), I found it worthwhile to go all the way to the top, not just the first two floors. Nice to take elevator to the second floor, look around and enjoy the views, take second elevator to the top, elevator back down to second floor, then WALK down. The walk gives interesting insight into the construction and there's hardly anyone on the stairs. Went at sunset with clear skies: nice views.
Mezzanine Ascend with Dinner Reservations We opted not to purchase tickets for the ride to the top of the tower instead we were quite satisfied with our mezzanine view included with our dinner reservations. There is still so much construction going on around the tower that we were very happy to skip all the lines with our dinner reservation included ticket up to the mezzanine where we were happy to see libations being sold so we could sit and enjoy the view before our 9:00 dinner seating. Obviously an iconic image of Paris and worth seeing but if you want to avoid all the long lines you may want to consider seeking out skip the line alternatives. Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our time at the tower. This is one tour stop you want to make while in Paris.
The only reason why i gave this 5 stars is because despite the crowd and the price of going up the Tower, its one of the most beautiful attraction in Paris. We went for a dinner and so we basically got the skip the line treatment, I would recommend this if you are only planning on going up once and never again. And if you want the best picture, check your weather app and go during golden hour. It is some of the best pictures you will have. if you want to enjoy the tower from the outside, it is best to go early in the morning. You can even cross the bridge to the side and enjoy more views
