"The World's Most Famous Pylon" Eiffel Tower Tip by Meadows11

Eiffel Tower, Paris: 601 reviews and 1,080 photos


The Eiffel Tower- pretty self explanatory really. It is a considered must for all visitors to Paris. I have to admit that I was extremely sceptical about the visit, I've always viewed as an unspectacular large pylon. To be fair it was slightly more impressive than that!

I have seen the tower a few times now, and although the first time I saw it, it looked great- the second time it looked dirty and neglected. The first time I saw it was on the run in to the new millennium and there was a huge countdown clock on the side.

I can hardly say not to bother with it, after all it is one of the world's most famous landmarks, but I wouldn't get too excited about it, once youve seen it that's it. I haven't been up it before, though I'm sure it offers a great view.
