The Eiffel Tower is the best known landmark in Paris.
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 are well known.
What You Need to Know Before You Go to the Eiffel Tower
Certainly, no visit to New York is complete without a trip to the world’s famous landmark; the Statue of Liberty. Also a visit to Paris isn’t complete without a visit to the world’s famous landmark; the Eiffel Tower.
It was built by engineer Gustave Eiffel for the Exposition Universelle similar to the Belgium’s the Atomimum for Expo ’58.
The Opening Hours
The Eiffel Tower is open every day of the year, from 9 a.m. to midnight
For the Sportive
The sportive peple 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 the Eiffel Tower. 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.
I hope that this inspires you to explore a new place or even this could be another one for your bucket list!
The popular spots for the best photography of the tower includes:
- Champ de Mars
