"Eiffel Tower" Eiffel Tower Tip by ForestqueenNYC

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

Their is a lot of criticism about the Eiffel Tower, but, frankly, I love it and couldn't get enough pictures.

The lights twinkle on the hour once they are turned on. Some French people with whom I spoke complained about the lights being turned on because it costs the taxpayers tons of money to light up the Eiffel Tower. I have a feeling that the number of tourists who pay to go up in the tower are offsetting this cost by quite a bit, but I am not sure.

A good and romantic place to watch this display while having dinner, coffee, or a glass of wine is at one of the cafes on the circle at Trocadero in the 16th Arrondissement.
