Seeing the Eiffel Tower

Before I get on with this post and show you the incredible Eiffel Tower, can we just take a moment to admire or at least appreciate this amazing landmark? I managed to take this picture on the famous Bâteau de Mouche, a boat ride that shows you different landmarks, which was great.

Anyways, back on to what this post is really about – Eiffel Tower, aka the Iron Lady – Paris’ most famous landmark!

It was my first time in Paris, and I must say I enjoyed every second of it, I mean, what can you not love about it? From the culture to the architecture, to the beautiful language and its exquisite French cuisine… Sounds like a dream, right?

—————–

I always wanted to visit Paris and see its famous landmark, because first of all, it’s always on social media and magazines, not to mention how my friends and family are always telling me their wildest stories about their trip there, so my curiosity grew even more. But when you’re actually there in person, it’s a whole different story.

If you’ve ever been to the Eiffel Tower, you’d know that there are different entrance fees. The prices vary depending on what part of the Eiffel Tower you wish to visit, which means it would cost less to use the stairs to the second floor than using the elevator. However, if you would like to use the elevator all the way to the top, it’s quite expensive. But don’t let the price discourage your decision, because when you’re either on the second level or the top floor, the view is simply breathtaking.

Here is a picture from the amazing view I got from the second floor! This picture was taken by my sister Jasmine.

Here is another example of the gorgeous view of the city, but now from the very top of the Eiffel Tower. First, I must quickly mention that there are thousands of tourists daily wanting to see the Eiffel Tower and its view, so I suggest going in the early morning when there are fewer people. It’s less of a hassle time wise, but also there isn’t a big crowd blocking your view, and if you love taking pictures, assuming you do, it would be much easier and you’d enjoy it more.

The Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly beautiful, and if you ever are in Paris – it is definitely worth a visit.
