The Eiffel Tower is definitely a symbol of love throughout the world. It is a very beautiful tower and you can go inside to certain height with additional ticket. The whole region around this area is full of architecture, beautiful sculptures, garden, and monuments. It is a must-visit for anyone visiting Paris and you should easily take a few hours to cover it completely. The sights of the Tower are simply awesome if you visit it during the Valentine's day. The night view is very beautiful. Perhaps it is better to visit the place before it gets dark and then stay until you have the night view too.

For me, Eiffel Tower will always be one of the most beautiful landmarks in the world, no matter what time you visit it. You can go climb up or take on the elevator to reach the top but I suggest you to take the elevator. The lights are really impressive at night, making you wouldn't want to stop taking pictures of it. But the best way to take pictures with this tower is using it as background from the ground. If you want to see the city view from the top, Eiffel Tower offers you good view but not the best. I prefer Arc de Triomphe instead. Just like the movies. Have the most amazing pictures of me and the family which were taken by a street vendor. He's been there long enough to know where you need to stand, how to angle the camera, and he even made people move out of the shot. The tower itself, impressive. Definitely a must do if you go to Paris. I walked down the river side and further down by the lovers bridge is another amazing spot to capture the tower. I went later in the afternoon which permitted me to get day shots, as well as night shots when the lights on the tower were turned on.It is spectacular.I suggested that you must come here.I love this place

If you are considering the very top....Make sure to buy the combo ticket online. We took the stairs for the first half of the tour. I read a blog that said you could buy the second ticket to the very top once you are up there on the second floor(if you decided to go all the way up.) You CANNOT unless you go all the way down to the bottom to the ticket office. Then you would have to purchase the combo pack, not a secondary ticket for the top only. We had 4 kids in tow.
There are three lines. Green- you purchased tickets online and are riding the elevator up ( very long line)
BLUE was the shortest line. Already purchased online tickets, and taking the stairs up.
Pay attention to the colors. Don't get into the wrong line.
There was a third line yellow I'm thinking to purchase tickets there?
We went on the blue line and only took 2 minutes to get through.
Go early for the best photo ops. We went at 930am. By 11:00 it was packed, no space to get photos without strangers in the photo.
