If you've finally come close to ticking the Eiffel Tower off your bucket list, then you must leave no stone unturned to make it a perfect experience. Here are some questions you need to answer for before you book your trip.
What time of the day is best to visit?
In my opinion it is best to reach the Eiffel Tower 45 minutes before sunset. That way if you go up and stay there for 1 hour, you can see Paris in day light, dusk and all lighted up at night. And when you come down you can see the Eiffel lighted up and also witness the sparkle that happens for 5 minutes every hour at the hour.
