The symbol of romance, The Eiffel Tower, in Paris is one of the most visited destinations in the world. And if you think it is nothing more than a patchwork of wrought iron, then you could not be any more wrong. Let’s take a look.
HOW TO GO
There are three International airports in Paris- Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Orly International Airport, and Beauvais. After reaching Paris, walking is the best way to behold the charm of the city. It takes a half an hour walk from Arc De Triomphe to reach Eiffel Tower. Or the Metro take you almost anywhere in the city. Get out of the Trocadero station, and you can see the Eiffel tower from Ecole Militaire.
Once you reach here the North, West and East pillar have elevators to arrive at the first and second floor. And the south pillar has stairs. To reach the top level, take another elevator ride to have the stunning view.
WHEN TO GO
From June to August the Eiffel Tower stays open until midnight. And the elevator ride to the top costs 25 Euros. But from September to May- the Tower opens till 11 pm. So book your ticket online, so you do not have to wait much in lines. But the stairs do not require fees, and you can enjoy the view of an upscale section of Paris. After the second floor taking an elevator ride to reach the top is a must.
THINGS TO DO
Do not forget to take a sneak peek at the room of the architect who designed the tower- Gustave Eiffel. And When you visit after sunset, the iron lady of Paris gives you a delightful view of the city lights. At the top of the tower, there is a bar open until 10 pm.
So, sip the refreshing rose or white champagne, and at the 1st and 2nd level there are fancy gourmet restaurants to offer you dinner at the top. When you climb down, there is also an opportunity to go on a boat cruise or taste the street food at Rue Cler.
Paris uses Type E sockets, so buy a travel adapter that fits the device. And the standard voltage here is 230 V. You also need a converter of tension to make your appliance work, if it operates at a low voltage.
