Many visitors to Paris want to view the beautiful Eiffel Tower, Paris’ pride and previously the world’s tallest artificial structure. It was designed by the French architect and engineer Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel. Every year, about 7 million people visit Paris’ most famous monument. And yet, it remains a high-risk investment.
Others say that the tower is overrated and not worth the journey. Some go so far as to dissuade guests. Long lineups and exorbitant ticket costs are their complaints. But its 7 million yearly tourists and 324m height speak volumes. I think everyone should view the Eiffel Tower at least once while in Paris.
The vistas aren’t the only draw because of its amazing design and construction with many floors. The first floor includes an outdoor display, like many museums in the city. In addition to monitors and information panels, the tower consists of reproductions of items and touch displays. With seven projectors, the Eiffel Tower will be projected onto the Pavilion Ferrie’s three walls.
Here are some things to keep in mind while visiting the Eiffel Tower to make your visit worthwhile:
- The sooner you go to the Eiffel Tower, the better. In peak season, Paris’ most renowned monument is also more costly. If you want to save money, travel during the off-peak season when crowds are more diminutive. The busiest season is mid-July to late August, while the quietest is winter weekdays.
- The restaurants in the tower have their own entrance. A restaurant reservation ensures timely entry to the Eiffel Tower but does not include a monument visit. It won’t stop you from having a great lunch or supper.
- Low fog and cloud cover may completely obscure the Eiffel Tower and the stunning vistas. If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, keep an eye on the weather! This is to determine the perfect climbing day.
