General Information

The Eiffel Tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris is a tower built from wrought iron. The tower is named after Gustave Eiffel, the man whose company planned and erected the tower. The tower has become one of the most recognisable structures in the world and is thought to be iconic when people think of France. The tower stands at 1063 ft(324 metres). It was built in the years 1887-1889 and became the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 40 years.

Getting there

The best way to travel to the tower is by bus, the 82 bus that travels through the city stops just a two-minute walk away from the entrance to the tower. Other buses such as the 42, 72 and 87 also travel to bus stops within a walking distance. By underground, take the M6 line to ‘Bir-Hakeim’ which is a 10-minute walk away.

Opening Times and Admission

The Eiffel Tower is one of the most visited sights in the whole of Europe. It has three levels open to visitors. Restaurants are available on the two lower levels and the third level is the main observation deck that gives stunning views of Paris. There is an admission fee to enter the three elevated levels of the Eiffel Tower and it is best to make a reservation in advance if you want to eat in one of its restaurants. The tower is open daily, 9.30am-11pm. Prices are set on how you want to get to the observation deck, by lift costs 25 euros but on foot is cheaper at 19 euros.

Paris.

Rated:

The main attraction, For a metal structure it is quite impressive how it is the centre point of the city.

Wow

Rated:

The most iconic structure in Paris, so it was a must visit and one we couldn't not go full out with. Our hotel wasn't far away so we walked there. The only small downside i'd say was the queues but that's to be expected. We went up the steps for 19 euros, mainly as we thought you would feel how big the structure was by doing this although my legs regretted it when i got to the top but not for long as the view was more than worth the climb. Just Brill.

Landmark of France

Rated:

A landmark of France and an iconic sight of the world. Visited both in the day time and at night and would suggest for others to do the same. The observation decks give fantastic views out over the city.

Love love love

Rated:

Loved my trip up the Eiffel Tower, definitely worth the trip all the way up to the top rather than just half way. Cafe and souvenir shop are great but expensive, but aren't all tourist shops. My younger brother did complain about the lack of wifi, however I don't think you need it whilst up there, enjoying the views is more than enough. Security really good, impressed with all the checks before being allowed to enter.

Bucket List

Rated:

One off the bucket list for me. Always wanted to go to the tower and was given the chance on a business trip to Paris. What a spectacular bit of architecture and far bigger than i originally thought. Very well kept gardens in terms of the champ aswell. I never realised that the tower had restaurants and unfortunately one of them was booked up but we managed to eat in another in the tower. The food was excellent although a bit costly as was entry in my opinion but that is to be expected for the biggest sightseeing attraction in France and arguably europe. Their is obviously a strict security regime and a heightened presence in France so i would give time for that as well when you plan to attend, but the staff were fairly friendly and got through it quite quickly.
