"Twinkling Tower" Eiffel Tower - At Night Tip by sfenton

Eiffel Tower - At Night, Paris: 64 reviews and 125 photos

I would strongly recommend a trip up the Eiffel Tower. It's really reasonably priced, I was very pleasantly suprised as I had expected it to be expensive as it's a novelty for tourists, but when my boyfriend and I visited Paris in December 2005 it was only 10 euros to go to the top of the tower.

I would advise going up the tower at night. The queues are much shorter, I think we waited just under 2 hours, whereas during the day the queues were about 4 hours long.

The view from the top is well worth it, and for those worried about heights, you're surrounded by fencing that doesn't spoil the view, but keeps you feeling secure.

Also, the tower twinkles on the hour every hour once it gets dark, and it looks really magical. It's just a shame the twinkles don't really show up on photographs!
