The Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in Paris and also in the whole world.
To begin with, there is so much to see and do in Paris. Thus it’s important to narrow it down and to start with the place that is well known.
✦ What You Need to Know Before You Go to the Eiffel Tower
Certainly, there is no complete visit to the city of Paris without a visit to the Eiffel Tower.
It was built by engineer Gustave Eiffel for the Exposition Universelle similar to Belgium’s the Atomium for Expo ’58.
✦ The Opening Hours
The tower is opened from 9 A.M
✦ For the Sportive
The sportive people can opt to walk up the stairs to level two, as the queue is always shorter.
This is a great workout, and it also provides a different perspective on the tower’s construction. Also, there are interesting information boards along the way and I can’t forget to mention, the panoramic view of the city of Paris.
✦ My Own Experience From The Eiffel Tower
I never imagined the size of this attraction. It is enormous.
This does make you stand in awe at the sheer size and craftsmanship that went into building this amazing structure.
It is also breathtaking at night when every girder is highlighted in a sparkling display.
