Eiffel Tower in March

Ah, the Eiffel Tower. The beautiful tower created by Gustaf Eiffel and erected in Paris in 1889 for the 1889 World's Fair. I'm heading to Paris on September 26 for a fun adventure with Jamie and Kevin. These photos are from my visit in March with my sister and mom. We had a great time. The last time I had been in Paris had been with my mom and now it was the first time my sister was enjoying the city. I have been up the tower three times and I am happily going to ascend it for a fourth time. 

I think the Eiffel Tower is something not to be missed when visiting Paris. I'm quite looking forward to visiting it. The first time I went I went up the tower in the dark, the second during the afternoon and the third time we visited mid-afternoon so caught the sun setting and were able to see the Eiffel Tower light up. 

You can purchase your tickets online if you book by a certain date so if you're planning on going up the tower and know when then I suggest you going to the Eiffel Tower's website a few weeks before your trip.

The last time I visited we got off the metro at Champ de Mars -  Tour Eiffel and walked along the river towards the tower. Leaving we walked up to Trocadéro which gives a beautiful view of the tower.

I never thought I would be as lucky as to go up it twice in one year. This has been quite a good year. Hope to share more photos of Paris soon.

  1. That cotton candy in front of the Eiffel Tower looks like Marie Antionette's hair - like a selfie of Marie Antoinette in front of the Eiffel Tower. Very amusing! :P
