Top of the Eiffel Tower

On New Years Day we headed out to the Eiffel Tower. Having missed it the night before due to having too much fun (and wine). I was looking forward to it, of course we had already seen it from a distance.

This time I was going to the top! Last time I had been in Paris my Mother refused to go to the top and even our trip to the second level was cut short. My Mother does not like heights. Neither does my friend Becca but she was up to the challenge, for me. This is what good friends do and I hope I can repay the favour one day.

It was worth it, the view is amazing but it’s a lot of waiting. I will remember three things about the trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The AMAZING view, how windy it was and waiting in line. Waiting in line to go up to the second level, waiting in line to go to the third level, waiting in line to come back to the second level, waiting in line to come back to the ground. I skipped the line in the souvenir store on the second level.

It’s not all bad waiting in line for the Eiffel Tower the people watching is really good and you can grab a coffee from the cafe.

  1. That brings back memories. I must gave been lucky the day I walked up with Barbara and sons simon and dan. Loved the challenge and the view.
    Something every traveller should do at least once

    • I really want to go back, I feel like I haven’t even begun to see everything it has to offer!

  2. Going to the top was terrifying. However, I was able to calm down enough to enjoy the view. I’m glad we did it… But never again :)
