Also known as the "Iron Woman," Eiffel Tower is an iconic symbol of the City of Lights. You’ve no doubt admired this tower in countless films, but when you see it for the first time you'll be blown away by its magnificent scale and grandeur. Gustave Eiffel built the 325-m (1,063 ft) tower in 1889, and for 40 years this was the tallest structure in the world. As you ascend to the third level, realize you’re climbing to the highest accessible observatory platform open to the public in the entire European Union. On the first and second levels, dine in the restaurants, shop in the boutiques, and enjoy breathtaking city views. An audio guide and an iPhone app in English offer historical and cultural tidbits. Taking the Métro to the Ecole Militiare stop, then strolling up Champ de Mars, is a lovely way to arrive. Plan to see Eiffel Tower and other attractions that appeal to you using our Paris planner.

  • Paris is an incredible experience with innumerable museums, parks, restaurants and beautiful sites but the Eiffel Tower is one of the most interesting places to visit. The view from the top is breathtaking but it's not the only thing to enjoy. Around the tower we can find hundreds of souvenirs sellers, people from all parts of the world, restaurants, street artists and many other surprises. There is a flow of energy which makes the visit a remarkable experience.
  • The person who changed the iconic Paris, Mr Eiffel and his crazy creation Eiffel Tower ages ago... this monument brings people all around the world every single day for many years ago. One of the tallest buildings in the world offers stunning views across Paris and breath taking impressions. No words to describe the experience, simply needs to visit it at least in your live.
