"Don't hate me but I gotta..." Eiffel Tower Tip by syllybabe

Eiffel Tower, Paris: 160 reviews and 173 photos


Favorite thing: Don't hate me but I gotta admit something. I thought the Eiffel was...a big monstrosity in steel. *duck*
In a way I was a bit disappointed when I first saw it. It was a cloudy day and there were green nets and scaffolding around the bottom part. I guess they do the most repairs during the winter when there are less tourists visiting. My feelings toward it, of course, changed when I saw it at night and I would love to go back and see it again when the weather is better and the nets are gone.
