What to Do and See in the Eiffel Tower

We’re here to tell you about the most important things you will need to know about the Eiffel Tower.

Going up the Eiffel Tower is one of the top travel thrills in Europe. Sure, it can be crowded and a bit expensive, but once you’re there, you have to experience it to its fullest glory. In this blog, we will tell you about the most important things you will need to know about the Eiffel Tower. This includes how to get there, where to get some food, and what you are able to see when you’re at what the French call “la Tour Eiffel.” Read on to learn more!

How to Get to the Eiffel Tower

The Trocadero and Champs-de-Mars, the areas surrounding the tower, provide almost entirely unobstructed views of the tower from the base of the pillars to the pinnacle. Sit for a bit in the grass, and people-watch before your ascent to get more excited or unwind there after your tower climb. You can buy souvenirs from the many tchotchke hawkers around the area, but if you see people with clipboards, be careful – they’re probably scammers. Be prepared to show security everything as you go through the security gates of the tower. There are no sharp objects allowed, so make sure any liquid refreshments you bring have a lid or top.

How to Go About the Eiffel Tower Climb

You have two different choices when deciding how to take on the Eiffel Tower ascension. You can head up the elevators or take the stairs. You have the choice to make the second floor the grand finale or continue all the way to the very top for an authentic experience. Both have their pros and cons. If you are short on time or have physical limitations, the elevators make the most sense. However, the rewarding feeling of taking the stairs, along with the many views you will get to take in while on the stairs, is truly incredible. Taking in the Eiffel Tower from the inside is awesome! You can see the craftsmanship and complexity that make up the Iron Lady’s skeleton.

Where to Eat in and Around the Eiffel Tower

Do you need some refreshments to refill your tank and your engine? The second floor is home to the Le Jules Verne restaurant, and dinner for two will run you about $500, and buffet spots for cool and casual munchies, and a cute macaron bar as well. Once you’re on the second floor, you can take an elevator to the tower pinnacle if you’ve picked the ticket option. There are also plenty of cafes and restaurants outside of the Eiffel Tower that you can also check out!
