It’s difficult to describe the feeling to see the Eiffel Tower for the first time. We used to see the tower through movies, TV news, documentaries, books and now we are in front of it!!!
We can tell you that the Eiffel tower in person won’t disappoint you. It gives you a magic feeling and you will feel powerful as the size of it just to get near there. You should reserve sometime to walk around the beautiful green area around it and see the tower in different perspective. When you get there, don’t be disappointed with the line, it’s kind of huge! But you will have two options. The easy way to get up there is using the elevator, that is a little more expensive but quickly and you will not get tired, but the line is bigger of course. The other way is to get a ticket to get some steps done before you get to the top. This was our option for two reasons – First: It was cheaper (Around 7 canadian dolares per person) and the line was really smaller than the other one to get into the elevator. Second: We preferred to get our time up, going slowly, taking pictures and enjoying each step up to check the structure and the views of Paris, we believe it was worth each step we took!
You will find lots of history information about the Eiffel Tower in the way up and as soon as you get up there you will enjoy an amazing view of Paris 360o degrees, you will have gift shops and café with washrooms.
Take your time to go around and see it in detail.
Grade: Eli = 5, Serge = 5.
Recommend: Yes totally worth it, more than we expected.
1- Get comfortable shoes to get there to enjoy the gardens around and the Eiffel Tower without issues.
2- You will find lots of people selling souvenirs about Paris and the Eiffel tower, so just take your moment to enjoy the view and then make your decision to buy it or not.
3- The Eiffel tower is really beautiful during the day, but is amazing during sunset and you can have champagne lying down in the gardens around it.
4- The security is really serious over there to avoid terrorism, so be ready to pass through it including leaving cell phones and cameras before the security door and take it back after they review it.
5- Enjoy all of it !!!
