"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.

One just have to visit it to understand why I gave 5 stars. Awesome construction. Do go till the last floor... Go in the early morning to avoid the rush at the elevators. Also take the stairs to get down at least one floor... In the night, every hour they will illuminate the flashy sparkling lights for 5 minutes, don't miss when the clock rings at every hour... Open till night 22:00
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.........
The tower itself is beautiful but it has lost some of its charm due to the heavy tourist visiting. It looks very pretty at night when all the lights turn on. I watched it for the very first time from the Arc of Triumph and at night and it looked stunning. I think it is one of those places you must visit only once in a lifetime. I had a good time but I certainly don't see myself going back anytime soon, at least.
Fantastic thing to do if you come to Paris; go up high at night for some fantastic views. Walking the first two levels is very reasonable and I feel all you really need to do, paying the extra to take the lift to the top is optional but we thought the views from the second level are perfect. It's a shame that they have surrounded the tower with plastic because of security fears. Very romantic and we loved it.
Loved visiting the Eiffel. It was extremely memorable. Most of all, it is a lot more than just a tower to take pictures in front of. You are able to pay to get on a lift that takes you to the top of the tower and see the city from above. In my opinion, this is best enjoyed at night. In order to enjoy this option, I would recommend that you go later in the evening (after 9 pm) so that you can avoid the long lines. There will still be lines but not nearly as bad as they are in the daytime. Expect to go through three lines. First a security line to enter the park area. Next you will need to get in the line for either the East or the West sides (there is no real difference once you reach the viewing area so just get in the shortest one). This will be the ticket line. It costs $25 Euros for adults to go to the top (the summit) and $12 for kids up to, I think, 16 years of age. Finally you will get in the line for another security check followed by a general waiting area to actually get on the tower lift. This is definitely an experience and it shouldn't be missed! Enjoy!!
