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.
