Make sure you wait in the right queue for going up the Eiffel tower - we queued for ages then found that we were in the queue for walking up rather than for the lift!!
Like the Grand Canyon - more impressive in person.
Unique Suggestions: I love to experiment with different views while taking pictures of the Eiffel. These were all done with a basic digital camera.
expensive to climd (by lift or feet) and have panorama
i ve not enjoyed this iron tower even if its an historical monument
I suppose really the Eiffel Tower is a real tourist trap ... but of course as it is Paris you must go to the top once. I even convinced my friend who doesn't like heights to go up.
dont pay to take the elevators at the eiffel tower, (unless you are disabled) it costs alot and a good time can be had by taking the stairs
Of course the biggest tourist trap in Paris is one of the most famous spots - the Eiffel Tower. But do go, and get your exercise by taking the stairs (saves money too). The views are excellent.
New Year under the Eiffel Tower (I have no pictures about crowd under this tower, but imagine it!) :)
