"There's a Reason It's Such an Icon" Eiffel Tower Tip by AussieDeb
Eiffel Tower, Paris: 601 reviews and 1,080 photos
So, it's a cliche; I know. But La Tour Eiffel is just a magnificent structure, and it has tremendous emotional resonance because we've all grown up seeing it and hearing about it. I couldn't believe I was actually there looking at it - and it was kind of creepy knowing Hitler had stood in basically the same spot at the Trocadero and seen it too. But he had to pretend not to be impressed.
I took about a zillion shots of the tower, day and night; just couldn't help going back again and again. We had lunch in one of the restaurants on the tower one day (the cheaper one; touristy, but still fun, and the food was perfectly okay).
We also went up to the top and enjoyed the view, bought souvenirs from its little shop on the top level, admired it from afar, watched it approach over the rooftops from a Bateau Mouches tour of the Seine and generally worshipped at the altar of its Frenchness. How could you go to Paris and not pay it a visit?
Directions: Just head for the tall, spiky towery thing.
