Paris is not done without visiting the iconic Eiffel Tower. Al tough I was getting little views of Eiffel tower throughout my cycling tour, but the feeling on getting top of it and looking at the whole Paris is just indescribable. You should definitely buy the ticket to the top of the tower. At top, the wind is gushing past you and the whole Paris just come in front of you. amazing experience, not to be missed.
Took a cab back to hotel..keeping eye on meter increasing euros every passing second.14th July,2015
Spending almost an hour or two, we headed to the Eiffel Tower via Franklin Roosvelt and IENA metro stations and walking for around 1.5kms. Standing 324 meters tall, Eiffel is not a symbol of the capital but a country in itself, inaugurated in 1889. It boasts a fully-refurbished 1st floor with vertiginous glass platform. We made our way to the top by two lifts, first taking to the 2nd floor going slant and latter to 3rd floor heading up straight.As you move up, it makes us wonder how this rebating steel structure has made itself an icon of the city.
Driving almost 5 hours they reached the Land of Love-Paris. Eiffel Tower was the first stop where the guide had bought the ticket to go to Second Level. An evening in Paris and a Hop on - Hop off cruise in Seine river is amazing. Dining at different cafes and buying designers are some of the main attractions of the city.
After reaching, we got a ticket and got into the que for an elevator which takes you to the different levels. We went upto second floor which gives you a beautiful view of Paris city. All the monuments can be seen in miniatures. It was a moment of "Clickathon"! We then went to a café, I saw a beautiful display of Macaroons. I was really tempted to pick up some, but to my shock one macaroon was for 1.90€. I held back myself, because I am not very fond of Macaroons, I have tasted it back home but I will definitely pick up some if I get it at a better price, maybe I just wasn't tempted enough. PARIS city tour awaited us next. It was also time to know all about the Perfumes at the Fragonard perfumery. Here there was the distillery of olden days and bottles of different shapes and sizes. A whole museum was dedicated to perfume making and it smelled like flowerbeds! The variety of perfumes were made out of essential oils and each had its distinct concoctions. We were given a whiff of thier top 6 scents and I honestly got so confused that I ended up picking nothing but it was indeed a learning experience as I learnt about the kind of fragrances I identify myself with. Our city tour guide joined us in, and we then scanned the streets of Paris. The grand brands at Champs de Elyss, to name a few Loius Vittoun, Channel, Cartier, Bvlgari, it had it all. We then passed under Arc de Triumph, which is at a height of 50 metres.
We reached the Eiffel Tower and believe me guys it was awesome, i don't have words to explain how beautiful it was. Every hour for 15 minutes there is a light show on the tower so don't miss it. We walked beneath the Eiffel and then on the back side in the garden. You just can't stop looking at it and admiring the beauty. Ensure you take enough pictures with your loved ones there at night. Post the visit and spending quality time we returned back to the hostel where we rested and got ready for the next day.
Fall in love with the glittering Eiffel Tower at nightVery few experiences will beat the feeling you will get while looking at the lit-up Eiffel Tower glittering every hour against the dark blue night sky. But since you will be hard pressed for time, I recommend you skip climbing up. The night scenes near the tower are spectacular, and they will keep you occupied. Grab a bottle of champagne and a few glasses from a grocery store and watch the 20,000 light bulbs illuminate the tower. Lie down on the grass in the garden underneath and watch people drink, dance and make merry.
5. Get out early in the morning, beat the crowd and see the Eiffel Tower.
Also visit at night, see the special light effect at the change of an hour. Great city view from the top!
Eiffel tower is a significant symbol of Paris which looks even more beautiful in the evening. The lift that takes you on the top floor of Eiffel takes your breath away as it keeps going up. The view of the city from the top is amazing as you can spot every destination from there.
Wonderful views from the top, great student discount. So nice to really just take everything in. Also tons of lock bridges down the river, so many to look at.
The Eiffel has its magic. The view and the atmosphere itself pull you into a trance and no one should miss the twinkling Eiffel. That's a must watch view!
There is a giant structure we still didn’t figure out on the opposite side of the Eiffel tower which then decided to feature a wonderful water sport which was remarkable.
The most romantic and beautiful Eiffel Tower.
Last but not the least, the main landmark of Paris, the Eiffel tower. As we walked out of the Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel station, and caught sight of the huge tower peeping through the leaves of trees, I had goosebumps. It felt like I have achieved the impossible, no less than climbing Mt Everest. The Eiffel tower has lawns around it , where people sit and sip on wine. We sat there in silence in awe of this magnanimous structure and watched the sun set behind it. One of those moments, when you can think nothing but just thank God. The best time to visit the summit the tower is after sunset and the charge is 15E. We reached when it was midnight. Once we were at the summit, it felt like we were on the top of the world. We could see the entire Paris illuminated. This moment will stay with me for the rest of my li
On my second day also I visited Eiffel Tower, it was like living a dream. Until now I had seen this tower only in movies where couples are kissing each other, artist drawing the different views around Eiffel, people posing for selfies, And now I was right there witnessing all of it with my eyes. It is truly a master piece of architecture. Unfortunate enough I did not have time to go up on the tower as the queue was 2 miles long and I had a flight to travel back to London in evening, so during this trip I could see it only from the ground. But I am definitely visiting it back with Ash:)
The most recognisable landmark of Paris is perhaps also the most major cliché of the city. Love it or hate it, you cannot miss it in Paris, and it would almost be a sin for a first-time visitor to step into Paris without a visit to the Eiffel Tower. When I travel, I try not to visit the same tourist attraction again if I’ve visited it previously. Time is precious and I usually want to make use of every minute to explore new places. But, I simply could not resist the lure of the Eiffel Tower. Despite having already seen it and gone to the top of the tower during my first Paris trip, I still went back to it for all my subsequent trips. Built in 1889 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution, the imposing steel structure never failed to mesmerise me each time I looked at it. I would walk under it, around it, to its left, to its right – every angle gave a new perspective. And, every visit offered a new experience.
6. Over to Eiffel Tower A long walk overall- but do-able from the places listed above. And, of course the Eiffel Tower needs no introduction.
And there it was...the grandest beauty of them all. I kept complaining to E.W. earlier on in the day about how small it looked from the distance. He kept telling me to wait till we got to it. And he was right. This thing was massive...and beautifully lit in all its glory.
It's a cliché but the first time I stood in front of the Eiffel Tower and it unexpectedly started to twinkle, it was magic! Traveller tip: The Eiffel Tower twinkles at every hour for 5 minutes after sunset so you could either stand somewhere in the vicinity or take a river cruise to watch the twinkling Eiffel (and other gorgeous monuments and historic buildings) from over the Seine!
The lesser said the better, for it is meant to be experienced. And then enjoyed.
