Built in 1889, the Eiffel Tower has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest building in Paris and the most paid visited monument in the world. It’s 324 meters tall and named after it’s designer Gustave Eiffel.
It happened to be the only day that had sunny and blue sky during our 8-day trip in Paris. However, because of the snow fall on the previous day, level two and three were closed due to slippery ice. We could only get to level one and we did have lunch in the restaurant on that level. We got to the Tower at about 9:30 in the morning. There was already a long line waiting. We got in the elevator more than a hour later. The entrance by elevator and stairs are separated, one at each leg of the Tower. Yep, you can climb stairs to reach level one and lever two. But we decided not to as we weren’t that adventurous.
